Meta-organizations are organizations that have other organizations as their members (Ahrne & Brunsson, 2005). The notion of meta-organization encompasses a diversity of organizations including international governmental organizations and non-governmental organizations, multi-stakeholder initiatives, cross-sectoral partnerships, inter-organizational alliances and associations, project network organizations, network administrative organizations, collaborative governance organizations, and many more. For nearly two decades now, meta-organization theory (Ahrne & Brunsson, 2005, 2008) has represented a major break from the mentioned discourses, which usually exhibit one of two tendencies (Berkowitz et al., 2022). We invite papers about the partial or more complete organizing in, of, and by meta-organizations.

Doing Sociology Now
Call for Abstracts
Digital RBU Departmental Conference – 17 November 2023
Department of Sociology, Rayat Bahra University, India
Deadline for submission of abstracts (300 words) is 10th November 2023
The organizers are delighted to issue a call for abstracts responding to this year’s Webinar theme, Doing Sociology Now. We welcome abstracts from colleagues who wish to join us on 17 November to discuss methods (“Doing”), contemporary social theory (“Sociology”), and topics that speak of or to the current conjuncture (“Now”). The conference theme allows us to ask what the pressing issues in Sociology are today, and what methodological and theoretical approaches can help to address them. The webinar will showcase the diverse range of perspectives present in the department’s research culture, and initiate thinking collectively about what doing sociology now means. Papers are welcomed from colleagues in the department at all levels and at all stages of their research.
Abstracts will be considered in terms of the extent to which they address the conference theme and should be around 300 words long.
Please also include:
- The proposed title for the presentation;
- 3 – 5 keywords;
- The main or central topic of your presentation;
- An outline of the methodology used in your research (where relevant).
Please email your abstract to email@example.com/ The deadline for submission is 10th November 2023. Accepted submissions and the constitution of the panels/roundtables will be announced on 13 November 2023. The webinar will be held online on 19 November. Please send any inquiries regarding the conference to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to reading your submissions.
