    Apologies for cross-posting. Please see an announcement of our PDW below that we hope will interest various ENT members.


    We are excited to invite you to join the PDW on "Language, Meaning, and Organizing: Linguistic Theories and Methods of Organizing." 
    • Scheduled: Monday, August 10 at 12:00-2:00 pm ET
    • Format: Real-Time – Open: Presenters and audience on live video.

    The PDW consists of three parts:
    • Part 1 will be a 60-minute panel discussion with Shaz Ansari, Mary Ann Glynn, Jeff Loewenstein, Mike Pfarrer, and Tammar Zilber, moderated by Eero Vaara.
    • Part 2 will be a 15-minute social, where we will randomly assign folks to breakout rooms so we can all meet new people in the LMO community.
    • Part 3 will be a 45-minute set of roundtable discussions where pre-registered participants can talk in smaller groups with scholars who are at the center of research on language, meaning, and organizing.

    Parts 1 and 2 are open to all and do not require pre-registration. However, if you are interested in participating in Part 3, then we kindly ask you to pre-register by sharing your preferences for roundtable assignments by taking this survey by Friday, July 31.
