EGOS 2017 Sub-Theme No. 05 “The Communicative Constitution of Organizing”

The EGOS Standing Working Group (SWG) No. 05 Organization as Communication (formerly SWG No. 16) is happy to announce the sub-theme for the EGOS 2017 Colloquium in Copenhagen, Denmark (July 6-8, 2017).

The sub-theme No. 05 entitled “The Communicative Constitution of Organizing: Toward and Beyond (Formal) Organization” will be facilitated by Dennis Schoeneborn, Timothy R. Kuhn, and James R. Barker.

As you will see in the Call for Papers, the sub-theme places a special focus on the formative and constitutive role of communication for practices of organizing that occur toward and beyond formal organization. That said, we also invite conceptual or empirical papers that more generally apply a communication-centered or discursive lens to study organizational phenomena of various kinds.

We are looking forward to receiving your short paper submissions (max. 3,000 words) by Jan. 9th, 2017 via the EGOS website!

See you in Copenhagen!
