Description

Conversation Salons: Theorizing in Organization Studies

Andrew Van de Ven, David Boje, Edgar Schein, Henry Mintzberg, Kenneth Gergen, Richard Swedberg and Tor Hernes will talk about theory and theorizing: perspectives, positions and presumptions.

Associate Professors Sabine Madsen and Anne Vorre Hansen host the four conversation salons, that will be held as Zoom Webinars between February 2021 and May 2021. The aim is to spur dialogue and reflections on how we engage in theorizing.

Sign up for the whole series, or the event that you find most inspirational or relevant.

As part of the audience you have the opportunity to contribute via the Q&A function.

We admit only 500 attendees for each salon, and slots are administered on a first come first served basis.
