Description: What determines how organizations are internally structured and why? This seminar provides an introduction to scholarship in internal organizational dynamics that affect both decision-making at the more micro-level (e.g., hiring, discrimination, segregation) and interactions with external environments (e.g., strategic planning). While the research covered in the course represents an important component of contemporary economic sociology, the course does not cover much that often goes under the heading of economic sociology. Rather, the focus is on getting a closer understanding of contemporary sociological research that addresses questions that bear on internal- organization-relevant issues.
