Call for Applications: Diverse Pathways in Academia 2020

NYU’s Stern School of Business, one of the country’s top business schools, invites talented scholars who are underrepresented in our academic community and who are completing their PhD in 2021 to apply to participate in our inaugural Diverse Pathways in Academia, to take place January 23 and 24, 2020. This all-expense paid trip to New York City will provide psychology and sociology doctoral students with insight and guidance on pursuing a career as a business school faculty member. Participants will come out of the program better prepared to enter and navigate the faculty job market, and will learn about business school as an academic option.

Many of our faculty members hold doctorates in fields such as psychology, sociology, statistics, mathematics, computer science and other non-business subjects. They have found a stimulating and satisfying academic community at Stern. For example, psychologists and sociologists contribute findings of great relevance and importance to the study and practice of management by conducting research on topics such as identity, emotions, groups, diversity, judgment and decision making, person perception, and a wide range of other topics.  Others, specialists in judgement and decision making, cognitive psychology and social psychology, use their knowledge and training for research on marketing, including consumer behavior and decision-making.

Globalizing Organization Theory: Conference and Paper Development Workshop

Hosted by Administrative Science Quarterly and the Sonoco International Business Department at the Univ. of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business (DMSB)

January 8-11, 2020

Columbia, South Carolina

Organization theory developed its key theoretical tenets through scholarship on organizations in North America and other Western, developed contexts. As a result, organization theory is rooted in a relatively small subset of the world’s many possible organizational forms and institutional environments. Nonetheless, a growing number of organizational scholars are responding to social and economic globalization with increased interest in organizations outside these traditional contexts, particularly in developing countries. This international expansion of organizational scholarship represents an overdue and valuable opportunity for expanding organization theory, both by leveraging the strengths of organization theory to provide a new perspective on organizations in non-traditional settings and by using findings from new contexts to highlight previously underexplored organizational processes in traditional contexts.

Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing Workshop

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The 17th semi-annual Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing Workshop will take place from 9 am to 5 pm on Friday, August 9th 2019 – the day of pre-conference activities for the American Sociological Association annual meeting in New York City. Originally a workgroup of sociologists doing research on gender and academic careers, scientific workplace organizations, and organizational transformations to promote gender equality, the workshop now includes scholars of gender, professional work, and organizational change. The purpose of the workshop is to learn about the range of work that attendees are doing, to facilitate collaboration and to set aside time for writing. We encourage new and returning participants. If you’ve never come, welcome, and if you have, welcome back!

As a group, we will talk about our current research projects. This will provide information useful for exploring potential collaborative projects. There will also be designated time for writing and research. You may use this time any way you wish:  brainstorming a new paper, putting the finishing touches on a research manuscript, working with collaborators, or doing data analysis.
