    Abstract

    Using insights from actor-network and post-structuralist theory, this paper attempts to describe the relational processes of virtual organizing. An ethnographic case study of a virtual organization is outlined. The paper concludes by considering ways in which organizations - virtual or otherwise - may be studied in order to provide the possibility of a form of research that reconfigures and reanimates current conventions of inquiry.
