Call for Papers
“Strategic Decision-Making in Labor and Social Movement Organizations”
An Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference
Hosted by the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE)
and the UCLA Sociology Department’s Work, Labor, and Social Movements Working Group.
Los Angeles, CA
May 28, 2010
The UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) and the Sociology Department’s Work, Labor, and Social Movements working group invites 1-2 page proposals for an interdisciplinary graduate student conference on strategic decision-making in labor and social movement organizations. The conference aims to create a forum for discussion of the historical and emerging forms of strategic decision-making in organizations struggling to protect or advance the interests of their constituents/members, and to highlight scholarship with important practical implications. Discussants will include both scholars and activists. We are especially interested in papers that analyze innovative strategies and tactics. The conference seeks proposals from a wide range of scholarly fields in the social sciences, including, but not limited to: sociology, political science, anthropology, ethnic studies departments, and urban planning.
Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:
¨ The effect of different institutional sources of knowledge on strategic decision-making
¨ Strategic decision-making in coalition movements
¨ Different “framing” strategies and how they affect resource mobilization
¨ The determinants of strategic and tactical innovation
¨ International and historical approaches to strategic decision-making
¨ Strategic decision-making in transnational labor and social movement organizations
Please send all proposals by March 29th 2010, to Anthony Ocampo: anthony.ocampo@...
Please forward to anyone who might be interested!=================================================================
