    AOM Caucus

    Exploration at the Intersection of Craft & Organizations

    Saturday, August 11th, 2024

    11:30AM - 1:00 PM

    Swissotel in Grindelwald (Lucern Level)

    Contemporary academic exploration in organizational studies highlights a significant revival of craft, emphasizing its role in fostering a more sustainable economy and society. It integrates aesthetics, ecology, and ethical care into new organizational models, underscoring craft's potential to innovate and create meaningful work, thereby challenging the disenchantment of industrialized environments. This resurgence reflects a shift towards local, community-based economies, where craft culture is pivotal. The proposed caucus offers a platform for dynamic, collaborative discussions on these emergent trends, aligning perfectly with the ethos of craft and its impact on organizational innovation.

    We invite academics interested in research at the intersection of craft and organizations to submit 1-page abstracts via the following link: https://forms.gle/fUhpX2mkGQeGJJtN7.

    Participants submitting abstracts will be grouped at roundtables, with abstracts shared in advance to facilitate informed discussions. Each participant will have the opportunity to elaborate on their abstract, discussing common issues and exploring potential research collaborations.

    Abstract Submission Deadline: July 7th
