Abstract

This paper reflects on a popular and influential theory unique to Information Systems (IS), namely representation theory, which is widespread in research on conceptual modelling. We review scholarly work in this domain and discuss why and how studies using representation theory need to transcend their focus of research and link their findings to further consequential variables of interest. We propose an innovative research design that builds upon, and converges, Representation Theory and the established Technology Acceptance Model as an example for an extended study. We conclude by discussing how the example of this research study may inspire IS researchers to overcome traditional theory boundaries and converge rather than diverge existing approaches to IS research in related domains.
