Our main question revolves around the issue of what kind of organizing or organizations is required to accomplish a transformation of our economic, societal and environmental structures and culture. The book and its main question are motivated by our observation of long existing problems in the conceptualizing of organizational change, the debates about the ontological status of change as well as the current discourse about ‘grand challenges’ in the field of management and organization studies and its rather naive framing of transformation. We are therefore calling for papers on three distinct, though interrelated, problems: “grand challenges”, the ontology of transformation and the politics of transformation.
Contributions (1 page) can be submitted until 31st, May 2022. More information can be found in the full Call for Papers.
