in NYC fall 2017 semester? looking for a PhD-level sociology of organizations course to take? (or visit?)

Are you a graduate student in the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium?*  If so, please consider taking my “Soc.  84700 Organizations, Markets, & the State” class at the Graduate Center.   At student request, I am teaching this class on the sociology of organizations this fall 2017 on Mondays @11:45am-2:45pm, starting Mon., Aug. 28, 2017.

I will email enrolled students in advance of the semester’s start to solicit input about topics and assigned readings based on their interests, in addition to the classics of organizational research.  When I last taught this class in spring 2014, we were lucky to have Nicole Marwell, Jeff Sallaz, Michel Anteby, and Caroline W. Lee visit to discuss their research, and Fabio had dinner with us after presenting at CCNY.   One of the aims of the class, besides learning substantive content, is to develop a local community of emerging scholars with links elsewhere.

On that note, if you are an organizations researcher who is located or will happen to be in the NYC area during fall 2017, please email me about stopping by the class to present on your research.  We’ve also had some great discussions of professional development with guests, as participants are eager to learn about different kinds of institutions and career paths.

*If you are a student at one of the below schools, you may be eligible, after filing  paperwork by the GC and your institution’s deadlines, to take classes within the Consortium:

Columbia University, GSAS
Princeton University – The Graduate School
CUNY Graduate Center
Rutgers University
Fordham University, GSAS
Stony Brook University
Graduate Faculty, New School University
Teachers College, Columbia University
New York University, GSAS, Steinhardt
