Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the 18th SCANCOR PhD Workshop on Institutional Analysis held at Aalto University (Finland) has been postponed until fall 2021. New workshop dates will be announced during fall 2020.
Join us for a unique one-week learning opportunity. The 18th SCANCOR PhD workshop on institutional analysis will be held in Helsinki. In the public morning lectures international faculty presents and discusses research within the field of institutional theory. Afternoon workshop sessions with international faculty are limited to PhD students who successfully apply to the workshop.
Call for Applications
At the SCANCOR PhD workshop on Institutional Analysis international faculty presents current research, reviews recent papers, and discusses new methodological tools that deepen the institutional agenda. Special attention is given to institutional emergence, persistence, and transformation and the contribution of institutional analysis to understand current social, ecological, and economic challenges. We also emphasize methods of comparative, archival, network and visual analysis. Finally, we tackle issues involving contestation and strife around institutions and organizations.
Students will take away new insights and measures, and a deeper understanding of how to match conceptual questions with research methods. The workshop prepares PhD students to carry out their own individual research using the methods of institutional analysis.
In addition to public morning lectures, afternoon workshop sessions for PhD students are devoted to discussing both classic and contemporary theoretical developments within institutional theory. Hence, the workshop consists of two parts each day (Mon-Fri):
• In public morning lectures international faculty presents and discusses research within the field of institutional theory. The lectures in the morning are open to the public and guests are very welcome. Interested guests are kindly asked to register (more information about this closer to the event).
• Afternoon workshop sessions with international faculty are limited to PhD students who successfully apply to the workshop. Admitted PhD students do not have to register separately for the public morning lectures, as they will attend both parts of the workshop and will receive the corresponding course credits.
Previous workshops were hosted at Stanford University, Copenhagen Business School, IESE Barcelona, University of Mannheim, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, EMLYON Business School, Stockholm School of Economics and WU Vienna.
PhD students from the Nordic countries that are the core supporting members of the Scandinavian Consortium for Organizational Research, and from European and North American partner universities are given priority. Other PhD students are welcome to apply as well, and will be admitted based on available space.
Interested students should submit an application including a motivation letter, their resume, a recent course paper written in English, and a letter of recommendation from their supervisor. The application deadline is March 30, 2020. Only PhD students currently enrolled in a PhD program are eligible to apply.
Apply now! The deadline for applications is March 30, 2020.
