New Institutionalism - 19th Workshop Jena 2024
Reminder November 16th Deadline - Call for Papers: 16th Workshop on New Institutionalism in Organization Theory

University of Southern Denmark, Odense, March 5-6, 2020 - We bid you a warm welcome in Odense on the picturesque island of Funen! We are looking forward to meeting institutionalist scholars from all over Europe and beyond, colleagues old and new, for two days of lively discussion and exchange.

The 16th annual new institutionalism workshop (NIW) seeks to bring together kindred spirits from different disciplines, countries, and academic systems who share an interest in pushing forward theoretical and/or empirical frontiers of institutional research. The workshop is an open forum, a space for meeting and conversation in order to share innovative research ideas and approaches regarding new institutionalism. Following the tradition of NIW, it welcomes in particular papers in their early stage. We encourage work that brings forward novel topics, employs innovative methodology, and/or advances fresh perspectives of inquiry. Approaches that drift away from present mainstream themes will enhance and develop our understanding of institutions and institutional phenomena. We are especially keen to hear voices from literature that does not belong to the standard reference list of institutional theory, and/or to learn about scholarly endeavors that draw on work 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 look forward to receiving submissions by experienced academics, young scholars, and doctoral students alike, and to many enjoyable and fruitful discussions during the workshop. Participants are expected to be present throughout the workshop and actively contribute to the discussions.
