Primary Session Category: Sociology of Organizations
Session Code: SoOrg1
Session Format: Regular (Presentations and Discussion)

Session Description: The sociology of organizations is marked by a number of popular theoretical frameworks including, but not limited to, new institutionalism (DiMaggio & Powell, 1983), resource dependency (Pfeffer & Salancik, 1978), population ecology (Hannan & Freeman, 1977) and network theory (Uzzi, 1996). These theoretical frameworks have had a significant influence on both theorizing within sociology as well as the fields of management, political science and economics. This session invites papers that employ theories from the sociology of organizations for the purposes of understanding processes both within organizations and across organizational fields. This includes papers that adopt qualitative, quantitative or mixed method approaches to illustrate how these organizational theories can be used to understand organizational processes.
