Monday, August 26: Woody Powell (Stanford University) + Dominika Wruk (University of Mannheim)

Location: Schloss/Palace Fuchs-Petrolub-Saal

Walter W. Powell and Aaron Horvath (Stanford University): Seeing Like a Philanthropist: From the business of benevolence to the benevolence of business (27.07.19)
Over the course of American history, philanthropists have been both praised and pilloried, depicted as redeemers of democracy and a threat to it. Despite the shifting social terrain in which they have operated, philanthropists — and the organizations they create — have grown in number and influence, acting as a catalytic force in the genesis and development of the modern nonprofit sector. Philanthropic largesse has also played a powerful role in shaping civic life and political affairs. mehr...
Dominika Wruk (University of Mannheim): The Presentation of Self as Good and Right: How Value Propositions and Business Model Features are Linked in the Sharing Economy (27.07.19)
The sharing economy as an emerging field is characterized by unsettled debates about its shared purpose and defining characteristics of the organizations within this field. This study draws on neo-institutional theory to explore how sharing organizations position themselves vis-à-vis such debates with regard to (1) the values these organizations publicly promote to present themselves as “good” sharing organizations and (2) the business model features they make visible to appear as having the “right” organizational model. mehr...

Tuesday, August 27: Sarah Soule (Stanford University) + Peter Walgenbach (University of Jena)

Location: Schloss/Palace Fuchs-Petrolub-Saal

Sarah A. Soule (Stanford University): Gender Inequality in Product Markets: When and How Status Beliefs Transfer to Products (27.07.19)
This paper develops and evaluates a theory of status belief transfer, the process by which gender status beliefs differentially affect the evaluations of products made by men and women. We conduct three online experiments to evaluate this theory. In Study 1, we gathered 50 product categories from a large online retailer and had participants rate each product’s association with femininity and masculinity. mehr...
Philipp Poschmann and Peter Walgenbach (Uni Jena): Public Discourse and Organizational Issue Fields: Structuration of a Field around Digitalization in Germany (03.08.19)
Contemporary institutional literature emphasizes the importance of interactions and relations between organizations as triggers for new meanings in issue fields. However, this perspective neglects the importance of field-external effects on organizational meaning construction. Drawing on the issue of digitalization in Germany, we examine the relationship between public discourse and organizational issue fields. mehr...

Wednesday, August 28: Bruce Carruthers (Northwestern University) + Henning Hillmann (University of Mannheim)

B6, 30-32

Bruce G. Carruthers (Northwestern University): Museums, Money and Markets: Crisis and imitation in US art museums 2007-2011 (27.07.19)
Although they are nonprofit organizations, U.S. art museums have recently adopted a number of “business-like” organizational features. When considering whether to embrace a new feature, museums frequently look to their fellow institutions, and over time such imitation begets isomorphism. The global financial crisis of 2008-9 provided a massive exogenous shock that undermined the resource base of many museums, spurring action as they tried to compensate for falling revenues and shrinking endowments. mehr...
Henning Hillmann (University of Mannheim): Privateers of the Atlantic Merchant: Elite Networks in Saint-Malo under the Ancien Régime (01.08.19)
A pivotal period within world economic history was the age of mercantilism because it entailed the first expansion of overseas commerce on a global scale. What, then, were the local organizational foundations of this worldwide trade development? mehr...

Thursday, August 29: Stine Grodal (Boston University) + Michael Woywode (University of Mannheim)

Location: B6, 30-32

Stine Grodal (Boston University) and Anders Dahl Krabbe (University of Southern Denmark): Gems, Skin or Chrome: Aesthetic Shifts in the U.S. Hearing Aid Industry (1945-2015) (27.07.19)
Aesthetics play an important role in the success of technology products. Scholars have theorized about how the aesthetics of technology products evolve over the technology lifecycle. Yet, due to limited empirical evidence the literature remains inconclusive about which mechanisms trigger periods of aesthetic innovation. We extend this literature through an inductive examination of technological and aesthetic innovations in the hearing aid industry over the 70-year period 1945-2015. mehr...
Michael Woywode and Michael Potstada (University of Mannheim): Configuration, bistability and innovativeness of regional clusters: An empirical analysis of organic and large area electronics (28.07.19)
Emerging technologies are social efforts that involve numerous organizations, creating a market that transforms inventions into innovations and later into products and applications. Regional clusters serve as breeding grounds for these efforts, as they provide crucial resources in close proximity. However, not all clusters can be considered equally successful. mehr...

Friday, August 30: Grégoire Croidieu (EM-Lyon) + Renate Meyer und Achim Oberg (WU Vienna)

Location: B6, 30-32

Grégoire Croidieu (EMLYON Business School) and Walter W. Powell (Stanford University): From Crû to Classé: how the veneration of the 1855 Bordeaux wine classification led to the reinvention of the Bordeaux wine tradition (27.07.19)
We examine the 1855 Bordeaux wine classification from its origins until today. A 6-page long document was hastily written in the Spring of 1855 by a handful of Bordeaux tradesmen, who rated the best local wines estates, or crûs, in five classes. The classification was intended to be a temporary list to facilitate a presentation of Bordeaux wines to the Universal Exhibition held that year in Paris. Unexpectedly, this classification survived the exhibition and has endured almost unchanged until now, becoming venerated globally in the world of wine. mehr...
Renate Meyer and Achim Oberg (WU Vienna): Heated Atmosphere: Organizational Emotions and Field Structuring in Online Climate Change Debates (01.08.19)
We use an organizational issue field to conceptualize how organizations partake in the signification of amorphous, yet intransigent issues – such as climate change. Following a network conception, field structure is captured as the linkages between organizations. Besides meaning system, and values, emotional expressions can affect the positioning of organizations within the field and, hence, how they define, debate, and address the core issue. mehr...
