APROS/EGOS 2015 sub-theme call for papers


2015 APROS/EGOS joint conference, Sydney, Australia, December 9–11, 2015

Call for Papers

Sub-theme 03 – Bringing space back in to the communicative constitution of organization and disorganization

This sub-theme will explore space/place from a communication as constitutive of organization (CCO) and disorganization perspective.

We call for papers that investigate how space is communicatively produced and that shed light on how space(s) matter(s) in organization and disorganization. Addressing these issues will contribute lively debate and intellectual stimulation, furthering knowledge of how communication constitutes space and trajectories, impacting and shaping organization. The sub-theme’s objective is to speak to multiple academic interests in all areas of management and organization theory.

The aim of the sub-theme is to bring space back into our study of how organization, organizing and the organized are communicatively constituted. We invite papers, both empirical and conceptual, that explore the inter-relationships of space and communication. We welcome diverse ontological positions, and mainstream and non-traditional epistemological methodologies.

We seek papers that offer interesting ideas that hold the potential to develop our knowledge and understanding of communication and space. As this is an emerging area of study, we recognize the range of possible topics and the scope of positions to adopt is broad.
