    Hybrid 2022 Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies. Online sessions (BST) and in-person attendance (accommodation and travel not included), 12 – 14 July.

    The Warwick Summer School convenes scholars interested in practice and process studies in an open and multi-disciplinary learning community characterized by dialogue, discussion, and joint exploration. The Summer School is designed for those with an advanced understanding of practice and process theories. The three days will consider the state-of-the-art of practice, process and routines studies (2 days) and how we can advance practice and process studies on emotion and affect (1 day). The hybrid event will take place online and in-person at Warwick University, UK, for those happy to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

    State-of-the-art Understandings

    The first two days of the program will cover the latest advancements in thinking about and the doing of practice and process studies. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their work during ‘research clinics’ and receive feedback on their work from peers and seasoned faculty including:

    • Davide Nicolini, Warwick Business School
    • Katharina Dittrich, Warwick Business School
    • Jorgen Sandberg, University of Queensland & Warwick Business School
    • Hari Tsoukas, University of Cyprus & Warwick Business School 

    2022 Theme: Studying Emotion or Affect?

    Each summer school we consider an advanced theme in practice and process studies. This year we will explore the study of emotion and affect. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the summer school we will debate how theories of, and empirical research on, emotion and affect intersect and differ. We are pleased to announce that Charlene ZietsmaProfessor, Smeal College of Business, Pennsylvania State University, will speak to us about her work on emotional energy and emotions in organizations. Paul Stenner, Professor of Social Psychology at The Open University will talk about his work on theorising emotion and affect, and the emotional organization. In addition, Professor Marianna Fotaki, Warwick Business School, will share insights from her work on the importance of thinking critically about emotion and affect in organization studies.
