Call for Abstracts: The 13th Workshop on New Institutionalism in Organization Theory
August 14, 2016
Hosted at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (19-20 March 2017).
Deadline for extended abstracts: November 14th, 2016
The 2017 annual workshop of the new institutionalism network gathers as an open forum for conversation on New Institutionalism in Organization Theory. Following the tradition of NIW, the workshop does not have a specific thematic focus and it is not about presenting polished papers that have already been submitted to major international journals. Rather, the workshop is intended to bring together kindred spirits from different disciplines, countries, and academic systems who share an interest in pushing forward theoretical and/or empirical frontiers of institutional research.
We welcome work that brings forward novel topics, employs innovative methodology, and/or advances fresh perspectives of inquiry, as well as approaches that drift away from present mainstream themes to enhance and develop our understanding of institutions and institutional phenomena. We are especially keen to hear voices from literature that does not belong to the standard reference list of institutional theory, and/or to learn about scholarly endeavors that draw on work not available in English. Also, in line with the spirit of the new institutionalism network, the workshop encourages collaboration, particularly among scholars drawing on or bridging different disciplines. We look forward to receiving submissions reporting well-advanced research as well as work in progress by experienced academics, young scholars, and doctoral students alike, and to many enjoyable and fruitful discussions during the workshop.
