Pragmatism has long been an influential movement in education and community transformation with its strong agenda for inclusive and democratic societal change. Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in the potential for Pragmatism to also inform organization studies, especially as a source of practical insight into organizational processes. This shift is exemplified by Philippe Lorino’s (2018) book ‘Pragmatism and Organization Studies’, which was awarded the EGOS prize for Book of the Year in 2019.
This sub-theme calls for papers that address the dimensions of inclusivity in processes of organizational change, organizing for change, and changing organizational practices from a Pragmatist perspective. We are particularly interested in papers that show and discuss the practical implications of a Pragmatist stance from methodological, empirical, and organizational perspectives.
