Multispecies organizing and more-than-human sustainabilities
The seminar puts aside the traditional presentation format with speaker and audience, to invite you for an open discussion on multispecies organizing and more-than-human sustainabilities.
For a long time now, business and organizational research has been primarily concerned with human agencies, interests, and voices – forgetting or downplaying many other beings, without whom organizations, and life itself, would not be possible. Even sustainability studies often approach non-humans from a distance - as abstract categories, natural resources, or environmental impact measures missing on the richness and complexities of more-than-human relations.
What place do non-human beings like animals, plants, stones, rivers, and more have in organizational processes in your field of inquiry?
What methods, frameworks, theories could be relevant to incorporate more-than-human agencies and relationalities into organizational research?
How can this move enrich our understanding of ethics and sustainability in business and organizing?
