SASE Mini-Conference on organizational inequalities

**Abstract submissions invited for SASE Mini-Conference**

“Scrutinizing Organizational Inequalities: New Theoretical and Empirical

Organizers:  Donald Tomaskovic-Devey, Andrew Penner, and Nina Bandelj

This Mini-Conference takes advantage of the growing literature on
inequality in organizational settings. Most studies of inequality focus on
the national distribution of income across households or earners, but
neglect the organizational production and distribution of respect and
rewards. We are particularly interested in relational inequality
approaches, but are open to any papers that stress the central role of
organizational processes, the relative power and status of actors, and
institutional contexts in the generation of inequality. All methodological
approaches are welcome and we hope to highlight the complementarity of
ethnographic, historical, and quantitative approaches to inequality
dynamics. We are particularly interested in papers that are comparative
across organizations, countries, or time. Papers using longitudinal
employer-employee data are especially encouraged and we hope to have a
session to discuss the development of a comparative inequality project
using such data.

The eventual organization of sessions will reflect the papers submitted,
but potential sessions topics might include:
•       The juncture of interaction and organizational practices in the
production of inequalities
•       Institutional influences on organizational inequality regimes
•       Citizenship, gender, race/ethnicity, and class intersections in
organizational context
•       The production and distribution of economic value in workplaces
•       The role of organizational inequality in national inequality trends
•       Relational inequality theorizing
