Ivanche holds an M.A. in Applied Cultural Analysis from Lund University, Sweden. At this level, he studied the role of education environments and innovation policies in configuring and producing creative youth in the Skåne region, Sweden. Ivanche obtained his B.Sc. in Marketing Management for the Food Industry from Perrotis College, Greece, which is a teaching institution of the Cardiff Metropolitan University. In this period, he explored the moral shaping of consumer choices in their everyday shopping practices and consumption routines, focusing on the ‘moral vegetarian’ market segment. Between 2013 and 2014, Ivanche worked as an adjunct lecturer at the Perrotis College, in Greece, and taught Bachelor-level courses on management, international business, and corporate social responsibility. In the autumn of 2014, Ivanche started his doctoral research within the field of STS, at Linköping University and as part of the project Scientific Representation, Illusion, and Revelation.
Representational practices in contemporary technoscientific endeavors;
The role of time, space, and imagination in the animation of technoscientific change;
Performativity, ontology, and potentiality in the rise and life of Big Science;
Keywords: Sociology of Expectations, Enactment, Sociotechnical Imaginaries
Ivanche’s doctoral thesis explores the topics of time, imagination practices, and representation in the context of the planning and making of the European Spallation Source (ESS) – a future Big Science facility for research in physics using neutron particles, currently under construction in Skåne, Sweden, and expected to be fully operational by 2020. He currently investigates how time is being imagined, represented, and engaged with in ESS practices across different locations; its consequence for the rhythmicity, flow, and productivity (or lack thereof) of these practices; and its role in the configuring of particular subjects and objects in the Skåne region. The research draws on multi-sited (-temporal) ethnographic methodologies, and ultimately aims to critically evaluate and to build upon the STS themes of scientific representation and performativity.
