The EGOS Standing Working Group (SWG) No. 05 “Organization as Communication” is happy to announce the sub-theme for the EGOS 2018 Colloquium in Tallinn, Estonia (July 5-7, 2017).

The sub-theme No. 05 entitled “Organization as Communication: The Enduring and Fading Away of Organizations” will be facilitated by Consuelo Vásquez (UQAM), François Cooren (U. de Montréal) and Jeanne Mengis (Universita della Svizzera Italiana).

As you will see in the Call for Papers, the sub-theme places a special focus on the formative and constitutive role of communication in making organization “go on mattering,” which also brings forth the precariousness and vulnerability of these collective
accomplishments. 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. 8th, 2018 via the EGOS website: www.egosnet.org !
