WOA 2019: Identity and Pluralism across Organizational Studies and Practices | CONTACTS: woa2019@assioa.it | ASSIOA

AIM, TRACKS AND TOPICS

To fully develop the themes suggested in the introduction, we invite participants to the 2019 WOA to address a set of issues:

– identity in organization theories between tradition and contemporaneity;
– differences between organizational theories and other disciplines and how they are changing;
– implications of other disciplines for the advancement of organizational theories;
– contributions from organization theories to other disciplines.

Accordingly, we present in the following table some preliminary ideas concerning topics and tracks for the conference in order to guide researchers in framing their possible contributions. It should be noted that the following represent an example but do not exclude other contributions in the spirit of this conference.
