other writers...

and I am also thinking of the following writers:

Bruno Latour
Re-assembling the social

Although this is for sociologists, there is something in this and in the writing of John Law that speak to communication design.

So also

John Law
Enacting the social
[as I would argue that communication design visualises the social and in doing so enacts the social

and a paper by
Barbara Bolt
in the journal 'Studies in material thinking'. Bolt comes from a fine art perspective, I do tend to continually hark back to fine art research methods and writing... it is where I came from and seems to provide a stronger, less fragile foundation for design research thinking.

somehow I need to go back through all those papers and find a way of systematising them and bringing out their connections, contradictions and overlaps.

Donna Haraway
and her cyborg manifesto, definitely because Margolin used it extensively in his Politics of the Artificial essay... and she crops up again in Bolts essay.
