  • Internet of Things devices Appropriation process: The Dynamic Interactions Value Appropriation (DIVA) framework
    Technovation, 2020
    Co-Authors: Lamya Benamar, Christine Balagué, Zeling Zhong

    Abstract:

    Abstract This research aims at exploring IoT devices Appropriation process from a consumer’s perspective. Using qualitative interviews on smart watches consumers, we identify four various stages of the Appropriation process: symbolic Appropriation, exploration, use construction and stabilization. Through the DIVA framework, our results show that the Appropriation process is a dynamic phenomenon relying on both specific interactions and value type, linked to IoT devices characteristics. This research gives a better understanding of IoT devices consumers’ Appropriation process, enabling the identification for companies of variables for actions to improve it.

  • Exploring motivations and impacts of consumer Internet of Things Appropriation : an advanced Partial Least Square – Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) approach
    , 2019
    Co-Authors: Zeling Zhong, Christine Balagué

    Abstract:

    As part of widespread IT consumerization, there has been an increasing interest in smart connected objects (SCO) in recent years. The consumer internet of things (CIoT) is presenting new opportunities for usage experience that have the potential to revolutionize our daily life. Nevertheless, CIoT Appropriation has been given scant attention until today. Our study aims to understand this Appropriation through an empirical study of 505 SCO users from a marketing perspective. The results show that CIoT Appropriation is a higher order formative construct having knowledge, consciousness, self-adaptation, control, creation, psychological ownership as its first order reflective sub-dimensions. CIoT Appropriation is directly positively influenced by the need for having a place, the need for efficacy and effectance, and the need for self-identity which is a higher order construct. Moreover, the study reveals the positive impact of CIoT Appropriation on extra role behaviors, perceived value of SCO and satisfaction of life, as well as the mediating role of extra role behavior on the relationship between Appropriation and perceived value of SCO. Our study presents several contributions. First, by conceptualizing CIoT Appropriation and exploring individual motivations and its impacts, we advanced the technology Appropriation literature that is low on theoretical and empirical insights at the individual level. Second, this work is one of the first quantitative studies on CIoT Appropriation. Third, our study modeled CIoT Appropriation as a higher order construct that is an advanced issue in PLS-SEM. Forth, considering consumers’ active role in co-creation of their usage experience, our model could serve as a tool for a deeper understanding of the effective usage experience of CIoT.

  • Understanding Consumer Internet of Things Appropriation: a hierarchical component modelling approach
    , 2019
    Co-Authors: Zeling Zhong, Christine Balagué

    Abstract:

    The Consumer Internet of Things (CIoT), which has attracted increasing attention in recent years, is beginning to offer advantageous new services based on advances in IoT technologies, changing our daily lives. Nevertheless, previous literature has provided little insight into smart connected objects (SCO) consumers’ Appropriation measure and impact. The current research examines this Appropriation through an empirical investigation of 505 SCO users by combining marketing and IS perspectives. The results show that CIoT Appropriation is a higher order formative construct having knowledge, consciousness, self-adaptation, control, creation, psychological ownership as its first order reflective subdimensions. Furthermore, the study reveals a positive impact of CIoT Appropriation on extra role behaviors, perceived value of SCO and satisfaction of life, as well as the mediating role of extra role behavior on the relationship between Appropriation and perceived value of SCO.

  • from cultural exchange to transculturation a review and reconceptualization of cultural Appropriation
    Communication Theory, 2006
    Co-Authors: Richard A Rogers

    Abstract:

    Cultural Appropriation is often mentioned but undertheorized in critical rhetorical and media studies. Defined as the use of a culture’s symbols, artifacts, genres, rituals, or technologies by members of another culture, cultural Appropriation can be placed into 4 categories: exchange, dominance, exploitation, and transculturation. Although each of these types can be understood as relevant to particular contexts or eras, transculturation questions the bounded and proprietary view of culture embedded in other types of Appropriation. Transculturation posits culture as a relational phenomenon constituted by acts of Appropriation, not an entity that merely participates in Appropriation. Tensions exist between the need to challenge essentialism and the use of essentialist notions such as ownership and degradation to criticize the exploitation of colonized cultures. doi:10.1111/j.1468-2885.2006.00277.x Cultural Appropriation, defined broadly as the use of a culture’s symbols, artifacts, genres, rituals, or technologies by members of another culture, is inescapable when cultures come into contact, including virtual or representational contact. Cultural Appropriation is also inescapably intertwined with cultural politics. It is involved in the assimilation and exploitation of marginalized and colonized cultures and in the survival of subordinated cultures and their resistance to dominant cultures. This essay synthesizes existing literature from critical/cultural studies and related areas to (re)conceptualize cultural Appropriation not only for critical analyses of media, rhetoric, and commodification but also for intercultural communication theory and pedagogy. Cultural Appropriation is often mentioned in critical analyses of media representations and commodifications of marginalized and/or colonized cultures. Although such works in critical/cultural studies often use the notion of cultural Appropriation, the concept is frequently used without significant discussion or explicit theorizing (exceptions are discussed below). Therefore, although cultural
