Org Bloggers Peace Summit

Helsinki, 1969. Camp David, 1978. Oslo, 1993. To this list of historic summits we can add “Columbia, Missouri, 2007.” That’s the year my home institution, the University of Missouri, hosted orgtheory.net bloggers Brayden King, Fabio Rojas, and Teppo Felin, as well as my co-blogger Nicolai Foss. Well, not all at the same time. But still: Brayden presented his paper on “Contracts as Organizations” at last week’s CORI seminar series, and today Fabio discussed his work on Black Studies programs in a seminar jointly sponsored by the Division of Applied Social Sciences and McCEL. Teppo will visit McCEL in May to present his paper “The Political Economy of Entrepreneuring.” And Nicolai will be here in May as well. Who says economists and sociologists can’t work together for a better world?

    Except for the nasty brawl that broke out at the end of my talk (Klein has sharp elbows!), I think the talk moved us in the direction of establishing peaceful relations between sociology and the dismal science.

    Economists can be nasty! I’ll have to wear full-contact gear (though, I did change my title to include “economy” in hopes of appearing more amenable).

    I didn’t realize working together for a better world was part of the agenda for these visits. I thought it was to sabotage OrgTheory.net by engaging in side-talk negotiations with each contributor. You know, the divide-and-conquer approach.
