The past few years have seen a plethora of debates regarding the nature of theorizing in organization research and the position of sociological theory therein. While it has been argued that organizational scholarship draws its intellectual lineage from a diversity of sources, thereby developing rich accounts of the workings of organizations, there is little doubt that the divide between organization scholars and sociologists has widened considerably.
This sub-theme seeks to explore the new boundaries of organizational sociology. It sets out to map a community of scholars that transcends disciplinary limitations by following one simple epistemic logic: society is constituted in, between, across and around organizations. We therefore invite papers from a range of theoretical and methodological approaches that investigate the sociological dimensions of organization and organization studies. The deadline for submission of short papers is January 11, 2022. You can find more information in the full Call for Papers.
