This Joint EGOS/OMT Young Scholar Development Workshop offers the opportunity for scholars from different schools of thought covering the idea of "institutional logics" to engage in discussion and to present and develop their ongoing work.
On both sides of the Atlantic and originating from different traditions, several schools of thought have developed. These focus on how 'rationales' that pervade larger spheres of life account for heterogeneity and homogeneity, transformation and stability. The concept of institutional logics has recently inspired much research; the notion of different 'economies of worth' has been gaining more and more attention. Similar ideas, although less frequently used, are inherent in different German traditions, for example the functional differentiation of society or the notion of Leitideen that are substantiated in bundles of institutionalized practices. The workshop will discuss how similar approaches from different continents, cultures and schools of thought overlap and also differ.
The main objective of the workshop is to provide junior scholars with extensive feedback on their current research by leading researchers of the field and to help them develop their papers into publishable manuscripts. It includes panel presentations, presentation of papers by young scholars as well as plenary discussions. We invite original work, both empirical and conceptual.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday, July 3, 2013, 9:00am–13:00pm.
The workshop is mainly targeted at early career researchers and doctoral students, but is also open to all scholars. All scholars interested in this workshop are invited to apply. Preference will be given to the PhD and early career scholars.
Please submit – via the EGOS website! – a single document of application that includes:
- On the first page: a short letter of application containing full details of name, address (postal address, phone and email), affiliation (date of PhD completion for early career scholars), a statement of why the applicant considers it valuable to attend the workshop as well as an indication of what journal(s) the paper is likely to be submitted to.
- A full draft paper that you want to develop to a publishable stage.
