PhD Project

  • Thesis Title:
    Situated Framings of Responsible Innovation in a Chinese Context – Case Study of Changsha County

  • Research Aims and Objectives:

    Overall Aim: to explore how Responsible Innovation (RI), a notion originated from the global North, could be framed in a Chinese context, particularly at a local grassroots level or micro level.

    Objective One: to understand how policy discourses around innovation and responsibility can mobilise various social actors in a Chinese context.

    Objective Two: to understand framings of innovation and responsibility under a Chinese business context, and ways in which innovation and responsibility related discourses flow and translate.

    Objective Three: to construct a set of situated framings of RI in a Chinese context, by examining perceptions and sense-making processes in and around discourses of innovation, responsibility, and RI.

  • Methodology:

    This thesis follows a qualitative, interpretivist, and ethnographic approach which fits well with the research objectives that require in-depth and context sensitive data. For data analysis, this thesis attempts to develop a novel analytical framework which I termed ‘The 3-Tier ANT- DA Analytical Framework’ based on Actor-network Theory and Discourse Analysis.
