Organizations & Markets WorkshopThis workshop focuses on the sociology of organizations, networks, and markets. A wide variety of topics are addressed, including how organizations operate, why they differ, how they emerge from prior organizations, how future growth depends on position in a structure of other organizations and how people survive and thrive within organizations.
Anyone interested in these topics is welcome to attend the workshop. Graduate student participation is strongly encouraged. The workshop room, 3B, is on the third floor, on the west side of the atrium, in the Charles M. Harper Center.
Whenever possible, papers are made available in advance of the workshop. To download a paper, click on the highlighted text. For further information, or to schedule time to meet with an outside speaker, please email the workshop coordinator for the Spring quarter, Damon Phillips.
