Theorizing and Historicizing Economic Culture

Friday, 20 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC16 Sociological Theory (host committee)

Language: English

Whereas classical social theorists offered explicit macro-historical theories of economic culture and organization, and traced their implications for meso-level institutions, contemporary research on economic organization and culture is often only very loosely linked to macro-historical perspectives (such as those emphasizing globalization or neo-liberalism). Submissions are invited which offer new ways of theorizing well-specified links between macro historical processes and meso-level economic organization and culture, including, but not limited to, such topics as corporate organization, supply chains, labor regimes, professions, and public culture.
