Organization as Time

29 juin 23

Technology, Power and Politics

The bulk of Management and Organization Studies deal with time as organization. Time is performed, organized, enacted, and as such is a locus of power. In this edited book, we stress the importance of organization as time. Time is an organizing force. The happening and becoming of collective activity, its technologies, its images, keep empowering, dominating or (more rarely) emancipating the fragile and ephemeral subjectivities of our world. And the turn to digitality in all aspects of contemporary life has made the organizing power of time more pervasive than ever. How to describe organization as time? How to explore the relationship between becoming, duration, images, events, non-events or historicity and their relationships with power and emancipation? Here are the rich and varied challenges seized by this book around a team of leading scholars interested in time and temporality in the context of management and organization. More here:
