This PDW aims to offer interested faculty and doctoral students an opportunity to explore how Marxist ideas can enrich organization studies and the associated empirical research.
Marxist theory has a long history of engagement with the field of organization studies (see Adler 2009 for an overview) and EGOS has hosted a Marxist organization studies sub-theme in each of the previous five years (leading to the publication of several papers in a forum in Organization Studies April 2015). But there are not many opportunities available to faculty and students who want to learn more about this approach and discuss with others how it might help them in their own research. This PDW aims to fill that gap.

The 12th semi-annual Gender, Science, and Organizations Workgroup will take place from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Thursday, February 9th 2017 – the day of the opening evening reception for the Sociologists for Women in Society winter meetings in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The workgroup is targeted at sociologists who are already doing research on studies of gender & academic careers, scientific workplace organizations, organizational transformations to promote gender equality, etc. We are a growing, loosely organized group of sociologists who focus on science as a workplace and many workshop participants work on NSF-funded ADVANCE research projects.
