Mary Godwyn, EiC Elgar Encyclopedia of Organizational Sociology
Briefly, the Editors wish to create a volume that provides readers with key foundational concepts in the field of sociology and organization studies, while also being inclusive of a range of theoretical perspectives that include but is not limited to liberal, postmodernist, historical materialist, or post-colonialist feminist accounts. We are also open to discussion that focusses on topics that meld transdisciplinary perspectives (e.g., inertia when implementing change), or social implications of technological change (e.g., deskilling, upskilling, digital skills and agile organizations). We are particularly interested in contributions that reflect the Global South and move us beyond purely Western perspectives, authors, and topics. Additionally, we encourage entries that update the major debates about the evolution of the discipline.
