Thank you orgtheory for hosting a forum on relational work

We also want to thank Fred Block, Kieran Healy, Josh Whitford, Gabriel Rossman and Viviana Zelizer for their important contributions to our discussions about relational work in the past two weeks. They, and all the commentators, show that there is enough excitement to move our understanding of relationality in economic life beyond static structure of ties into a continued investigation of the creative effort people make establishing, maintaining, negotiating, transforming, and terminating economic relationships, and how asymmetries and conflict, meaning and affect play into that process and shape its outcomes.

There is also promise that economic sociologists will continue to investigate how relational work is structured by organizational and institutional contexts, and develop useful typologies and testable hypotheses about relational work.

With much appreciation, we look forward to a continued dialogue!

Nina and Fred
