À propos de cet évènement

11th OAP workshop about the "Politics of Time" (June, 17th-18th). Online.

Time and temporality have long been central issues in Social Sciences and in Management & Organization Studies (MOS) in particular. Designing the Gregorian calendar was both theologically and politically meaningful for the Catholic Church. Likewise, many ‘temporal’ artifacts, such as the mechanical clock, time clocks, dashboards, project management techniques and digital technologies, appear as major loci of power, reflecting legitimacy structures and authority in relationship with the temporality of social life. Organizations and organizing are not just spaces or spacing processes. They are also temporal ordering processes. Management itself has become a temporal phenomenon serializing, ordering, and rythming collective activity through various instruments and agencies. Digitality (more and more interwoven with management or self-management) as an infrastructure, a technology, a technique or a semiosis is also temporalizing our organizations and our lives. The use of social network, AI, smartphones, big data, cloud-based techniques has dramatically changed our relation to alterity, empathy and conflicts. They perform and enact them, make them visible or invisible in a decentered way that is plugged into global narratives.

Beyond the usual scope of organizations and organizing processes, social movement (such as Occuppy Wall Street, the Yellow vest movement or the Arabian spring) have also shown that the rise and fall of a political force is also a question of rhythm, tempo and temporal work. Ongoing debates about the Anthropocene and the politics of nature have also become largely temporal. The planet thus needs to be urgently saved. No time for debates or diagnosis. Time would be just what is left for an urgent action. Individuals are called to act responsibly but face global issues and global temporalities that just crush them.

What are the relationships today between temporality and materiality? How is time materialized in contemporary processes of organizing and management? How can time itself and the process of becoming be described as a materialization, an embodiment and an ‘enfleshment’? With which added values for organizational scientists? What is the role of materiality and digitality in processes of control and surveillance in our societies and organizations? How do digital tools perform new forms of politics and conflicts? Are we moving more and more from materialities controlling us to materiality involving our self-control and control of our selves? How does politics express itself in contemporary spatio-temporal phenomena? In particular in the context of remote work, telework, platforms, freelancer-based organizations, slashers’ practices, digital nomads, makers, DIY and so-called new ways of working? How is the covid crisis making visible or changing the relationship between time and politics in our organizations? How is Anthropocene materialized in time and temporalized through materializations?

The 11th OAP workshop will focus on these topics of time, temporality, temporal structures, temporal work and their relationships with the politics of organizing. More general submissions about more traditional OAP topics (new materialities, performativity and ontologies of organizing) are also welcome.

3 keynote speakers, 3 panels, 15 agoras, 27 papers, around 180 participants expected. Full program here: https://drm.dauphine.fr/fileadmin/mediatheque/drm/documents/CFP_OAP_2021_final_version.pdf Contact: workshopoap@gmail.com
