Hi Batul,

There are several book recommendations that I should give you as a start, but it looks as if your question is geared towards identifying marquis historical papers so that you can do your own dive. The list is incomplete and the literature is very large and messy, so sorry if I've missed anything (which I know I did).I stop at 2008. This is just a 0.1% sample and is highly subject to preferences and opinions. 

Start with these (also look up all authors):

Dear SOCNET listserv,

 

I’m a graduate student writing my thesis on cross-nationality professional interactions in Kuwait. I am looking to incorporate work on networks and relational sociology, especially as relevant to organizations, into my literature review but am not very familiar with the field. Any recommendations as to scholars whose work I should pay attention to would be highly appreciated. I’m aware of Emirbayer’s work in the 90s but would like to know about more recent scholarship and debates within the discipline.

 

Thank you in advance,
