Organization science is an interdisciplinary endeavor, bringing together scholars who do “fundamental research about organizations, including their processes, structures, technologies, identities, capabilities, forms, and performance.” The history of the journal (and the broader field of organizational research) has strong links to other academic disciplines, including psychology and sociology. Psychology’s emphasis on individual behavior has informed research on the behavioral microfoundations of organizations, whereas sociological perspectives on society and institutions inform theories about the social context in which organizations operate.

Call for Papers: Organizations and City-level Outcomes at EGOS

“Cites as Sites and Drivers of Organizational Action” at the European Group of Organizational Studies (EGOS) Colloquium 2019
We would like to invite you to submit your current work to our sub-theme on Cities as Sites and Drivers of Organizational Action (#43) at the EGOS Colloquium 2019, which will be held in Edinburgh on July 4–6, 2019 (call for papers attached and online).
 
The sub-theme welcomes submissions of high-quality research on cities as arenas of and actors in organizing investigated from the perspectives of organization studies, management, sociology, geography, and political science, among others. While we have a preference for empirical, comparative research that neither relegates cities to a passive backdrop of organizational behavior, nor treats organizations as a derivate of local communities and markets, we are also open to other investigations on cities as sites and drivers of organizational action. This research will likely analyze processes, such as branding, collaborating, competing, learning, participating, and coordinating across sectors.

Call for Papers: ESS Mini-Conference on Emotions and Work

Eastern Sociological Society Annual Conference 2019: Mini-Conference 
Emotions and Work
Boston, MA
 

This mini-conference aims to bring together scholars working on the emotional landscape of contemporary workplaces and workers. Under neoliberalism, work has become more insecure for workers across the board—even for elite workers who typically had enjoyed far more stable careers. What do these shifts mean for implicit and explicit emotional requirements from workers on the job? Furthermore, how do workers emotionally respond to an uncertain workforce? Emerging research suggests that all workers are now salespeople who must “sell” their personalities, above and beyond their skills and credentials, as they seek to advance in their careers. Emotions such as cheer, warmth, optimism, and passion are key in the workplace, include in decisions about hiring, promotion, and designating value to work.

This mini-conference will focus on how emotions matter in the contemporary workplace and for contemporary experiences of work. We are, broadly, interested in submissions that focus on emotions and work, drawing from any methodology. Below are just a few examples of the kinds of questions that papers in the conference could seek to address:

Call for Papers: ESS Mini-Conference on Race and Organizations

Mini-Conference: Race and Organizations
Eastern Sociological Association Annual Meeting
Boston, MA

When researchers analyze race and organizations they primarily do so at the individual level. Sociological studies confirm that organizations produce inequality or systematic disparities between racial groups. In particular, all else being equal, Whites have far better experiences and outcomes with the organizations – firms, schools, hospitals, etc. – that we have come to depend upon for our livelihood than racial minorities.
