Abstract [en]

The change of structures of work towards fewer boundaries in time, space and tasks are sometimes refered to as boundaryless work. ICT is pointed out as one cause of this tendency. The aim of the chapter is to discuss the role of mobile ICT in the forming of a borderland between work and non-work and the identities formed in relation to this borderland; how is mobile ICT used in work and non-work practices, how is this use related to the forming of a borderland and what are the characteristics of the identites formed in this borderland? Narratives of experiences of mobile ICT practices are analysed by means of social theories. The results show that mobile ICT is used as a boundary object between work and non-work. In distinguishing between functions and artefacts, between time and space, different identities are formed; extended work identity, border identity and boundaryless identity.
