does organizational sociology have a future? the answer at 10:30 tomorrow

Ah, ASA. So full of sociologists. What more can one say.

But, for those of you who are here in San Francisco, here’s one last plug for tomorrow’s OOW session, “Does Organizational Sociology Have a Future?” Featuring Howard Aldrich, Lis Clemens, Harland Prechel, Martin Ruef, and Ezra Zuckerman. Plus I hear a rumor Dick Scott and Chick Perrow will be in the audience, heckling.

It’s at 10:30am, and — important detail — it’s at the Parc 55, not the Hilton. I almost missed the business meeting tonight because I was in the wrong hotel. Anyway, the room is Cyril Magnin II, Level Four.

Fingers crossed that the answer is “yes”.

  1. for those who can’t make it, is anyone recording the session and, if so, would it be possible to post the recording at Org Theory?

  2. I don’t know that anyone is recording it, but I can certainly write up some highlights.

  3. The correct answer was “it depends…”
    Dick was in fine form, offering 3 trenchant comments at the end. Chick was attentive but chose to save his comments until after the session was over. It was great to see both at the session.
