The workshop of the new institutionalism network will be held in the eternal city of Rome. Institutional views of persistence and change find a perfect environment in the eternal city. We are happy to announce that Prof. Bruce Carruthers, Northwestern University, will be the keynote speaker of the 10th workshop!
Hosted at LUISS (Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali) Guido Carli, the workshop seeks to bring together kindred spirits from different disciplines, countries and academic systems who share interest in pushing forward theoretical and/or empirical frontiers of institutional research. The workshop does not have a specific focus. Further, it is not about presenting completed papers that have already been published or submitted to major international journals. It is an open forum, a space for meeting and conversation, and for coining bold new research ideas.
The participants are therefore expected to be present throughout the workshop, and actively contribute to the discussions. We welcome work that brings forward novel topics, employs innovative methods, and/or advances fresh perspectives of inquiry; approaches that drift away from present mainstream themes takes on research about institutions. We are especially keen to hear voices of authors who do not belong to the standard list of institutional theory references and/or draw on literature that is not available in English. Also, in line with the new institutionalism network's spirit, the workshop encourages collaboration, particularly among scholars drawing on or bridging different disciplines. We are looking forward to receiving submissions reporting well--‐advanced research as well as work in progress by experienced academics, young scholars and PhD students, and to fruitful discussions during the workshop.
