Inhoud vak

Organizational Science sets the stage for researching, analysing and
theorising processes of organizing in a variety of contexts. In this
course we conceptualise organizations not as fixed entities but as
ongoing processes of organizing. We combine a focus on organizational
actors’ sensemaking practices and their day-to-day (inter)actions with
developing a sensitivity to particular situational and institutional
contexts in which these interactions emerge or are embedded. Through an
analysis of classic, contemporary and critical texts as well as
exemplary case studies students develop knowledge of and insight in
themes such as power and institutions, structure and culture, control
and resistance, collaboration and conflict, and identity and
identification. Taking a distinctly social scientific approach, we
explore various theoretical and methodological debates in the field of
organization science in order to develop an understanding of different
perspectives to studying organizations and organizing.
