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

We would like to encourage you to submit abstracts for paper presentations
for the Corporate Networks track at the Third European Conference on Social

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

Deadline for paper and poster abstract submissions is March 31. Please find
