Critical perspectives on organization and management theory( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume questions the organization of knowledge in organization studies that emerged afrer World War II. It calls into question the managerialist view of what organizations are, how they should be conducted, and how they should be studied. The authors of the essays included here represent a diversity of views: neomarxist, labour process, symbolic, feminist. Together they question the epistemological choices that were made; they articulate other paradigmatic paths that could have been taken; and they provide alternative forms of knowledge production. Colletively they forward a view of organizations not as rational and efficiency seeking, but as sites of inequalities and resistances, where meanings and interpretations are contested, reflecting the wider tensions among diverse interest groups within society."--Jacket

Ecologies of Sustainable Concerns: Organization Theorizing for the Anthropocene( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : What if we imagine we have been leaving the épistème of the age of 'Man at the center of knowledge', the epoch which has brought us to the brink of ecological disaster through discourses and practices of advanced market capitalism, and move on to imagine that we are entering the age of the Anthropocene, positing the need for radically reconceptualizing the relationship between humanity and nature? What discourses and practices would carry this? What kind of knowledge would be possible? Who would be the subject of such knowledge? Inspired by Braidotti's definition of cartography as a method and Latour's articulation of matters of fact and matters of concern, we bring together a variety of feminist ecological perspectives, materialist and new materialist, to eventually assemble a cartographic lens we label ecologies of sustainable concerns. Such a lens would facilitate reclaiming 'sustainability' in organization studies discourses and practices for living well and living with others in the Anthropocene. It is our expectation that in reclaiming 'sustainability' through the feminist literatures we are using, and their discursive variations, it would become clearer that there are options for an economy and ecology beyond what is permissible to say and do as knowledge in organization studies under advanced market capitalism

The struggles of living in a postcard : tourisms social and cultural influences on a mountain community by Elizabeth A Cartier( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Tourism scholarship is continuously advancing the understanding of tourism development as it positively relates economically and environmentally to tourism-based societies. In recent years, the tourism discipline as a whole has made little progress in identifying the social and cultural impacts of tourism, including questions of why and how local communities' traditional foundations and defining characteristics are changed, influenced, and challenged by tourists and tourism business development. This dissertation restores the conversation that focuses on how tourism development and consumerism can change the socio-cultural profiles of local communities by addressing the understudied area of the ways in which tourism may affect the social systems and collective dynamics of a tourism-based community. Drawing on Nash's (1977) view of tourism as a form of imperialism and expanding on Doxey's (1975) original attempt to identify tourism's influence on local residents, this dissertation contributes to social theories of the tourism discipline by bringing a different frame of reference and set of questions to exploration of the social impact of tourism growth through a qualitative ethnographic method and a constructivist grounded theory analysis of primary (participant observation and interviews) and secondary (written documents and pictures) data sources from eighteen months of immersion in one mountain community in the advanced industrial society of the United States. The findings suggest that tourism impacts four dimensions of this mountain community: structuring the local social world, intensifying acceptance issues between members of different social groups, shaping conflict and disagreement, and establishing the centrality of the environment. This research contributes to previous research by arguing that a holistic, complex account of interconnected relationships in a local community, such as this, can illuminate the nature of social conflict and disagreement around tourism, as well as suggest that tourism business decision-makers have the ability to influence the relationships of the major players in a recreation-based community
