Call for Papers: Mini-conference on Intersections of Economic Sociology and Organizations, Occupations and Work

Fellow Travelers on Different Roads: The Intersections of Economic Sociology and Organizations, Occupations, and Work

August 11, 2017
Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University, Montreal

The industrial revolution fundamentally transformed society.  Central to this transformation was the growing role of work, organizations, and markets in daily life. It is no coincidence that the discipline of sociology was founded in this era, and that the study of these institutions continues to be at the core of both the Economic Sociology and Organizations, Occupations, and Work sections.

This mini-conference aims to bring together members of both sections to facilitate dialogue within and across our fields. The event will highlight work that advances research in Economic Sociology and Organizations, Occupations, and Work, using a diverse set of theoretical and methodological approaches.  We invite research that explores core themes from both domains, as well as research that develops the intersections and tensions between the two.  We are especially interested in new work that engages with emerging phenomena and/or uses novel perspectives. We hope that the conference will bring together economic sociologists and scholars of organizations, occupations, and work from across institutional divides, including those in sociology departments, as well as in schools of management, engineering, public policy, and industrial and labor relations.  Thematic sessions will be determined based on submissions.
