***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear all, please consider submitting a paper to the corporate networks track at EUSN2017! Call for Papers, Organized session on Corporate Networks across the Globe at the Third European Conference on Social Networks (EUSN2017) Mainz, 26 - 29 September 2017 www.eusn.org ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- --- We would like to encourage you to submit abstracts for paper presentations for the Corporate Networks track at the Third European Conference on Social Networks: Corporate networks are among the most studied social networks, being used both as a method for tracing the power structure of capitalist societies and as a causal factor in explaining the behavior of corporate elites. This track brings together scholarly work from around the globe to investigate corporate networks, with particular interest in networks at the level of corporate governance: interlocking directorates, ownership, and corporate policy networks. The papers examine the political, economic and sociological consequences of the network ties and/or treat network ties as a phenomenon to be explained, visualized or set in historical perspective. While the track is focused analytically on corporate networks, the national and regional contexts in which the proposed papers examine these networks vary greatly. This provides a rich opportunity for cross-national comparative thinking across papers and sessions, within our track. Deadline for paper and poster abstract submissions is March 31. Please find more details regarding the submission and registration procedure below. Session organizers (do not hesitate to contact us!)
