    Dear Colleagues 

    The Editors of the forthcoming Elgar Encyclopedia of Organizational Sociology are now seeking entries! On behalf of our team, I am pleased to post this notification and attach the call to this email. 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.

    Our team consists of:

    Mary Godwyn, Professor of Sociology, Babson College, MA, USA, and Editor-in-Chief: Elgar Encyclopedia of Organizational Sociology

    Ethné Swartz, Professor of Management, Feliciano School of Business, Montclair State University, NJ, USA

    Michael Grothe-Hammer, Associate Professor of Sociology (Organization & Technology), Department of Sociology and Political Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)

    Samuel O. Idowu, London Guildhall School of Business & Law, London Metropolitan University

    Please contact either Mary Godwyn who is serving as EiC (Email: ed.encyclopedia.soc.org@gmail.com)
    or me (swartze@montclair.edu) if you wish to participate.

    The full call is also attached.
