Pełny opis:

The course title is borrowed from W. Richard Scott’s book “Institutions and Organizations”, which provides a comprehensive summary of the new institutional perspective in social sciences. The study of institutions constitutes an important topic in various disciplines: sociology, management studies, economy, political science and history. From the many approaches within the institutional perspective, the course focuses on the new institutional study of organizations. The new institutionalism is one of the most influential paradigms bridging in an interdisciplinary manner the social sciences. Its sociological application – which although privileged is not dominant in this course curriculum – started developing at the turn of the 1970s and the 1980s, after the publication of Meyer and Rowan’s (1977) and DiMaggio and Powell’s (1983) seminal papers stating that organizations are rather seeking legitimacy than acting rationally. The new institutional approach over the last thirty years has studied organizations and has covered more and more topics and possible research domains. Furthermore, the most influential interpretations of Polish society’s transformation from the communist regime have been framed within this paradigm. Although well grounded in the social sciences tradition, the new institutionalism assumptions are mainly expressed in plain language. This non-pretentious linguistic level renders them suitable for students willing to study social sciences in English. During the course, the most important notions of the theory will be discussed – beginning with the concepts of institution and organization (which are central for social sciences since the XIXth century) and closing with most recent ideas like translation and institutional logics.
