come say hello at the icos seminar @ michigan

First, Ann Arbor orgheads might want to come by and say hello at this week’s ICOS workshop. I’ll be giving a talk on how authority in organizations stems from “institutional work.” The talk will be about how college administrators in the Third World Strike acquired coercive authority and wielded it against black student activists. Here’s a youtube clip of the college administrator in question – SI Hayakawa, who later went on to be a United States senator. I will be introduced by Dan “A Budding Sociologist” Hirschman.

Second, I’ll be taking an orgtheory vacation till March 1. At that time, we have a SUPER COOL NEW GUEST BLOGGER.

Third, I just have to show you this picture, click here for others:

  1. Bon voyage!

    This post startled me a bit because S.I. Hayakawa was my grandfather’s college roommate.

    But I just came to say that shouldn’t it be “yes, can we”? Syntactically, that is. “Yes” isn’t part of the sentence, and it’s the verb that should be prepended. Although I guess I don’t really know what you’re supposed to do with an interjection when translating English to Yoda’s OSV.
