In 2016 CASBS revived its storied history of summer institutes that have had transformative effects on a variety of social science fields, including behavioral economics, the study of contentious politics, and economic sociology. The institute on “Organizations and Their Effectiveness” was a tremendous success that the Center seeks to build upon this summer. This year’s institute will take place from July 10 to July 21. Once again, the Center is proud to acknowledge the institute’s co-sponsors: Stanford’s Dean of Research, the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Hoover Institution, and the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research.
Institute participants are young scholars (ranging from late-stage graduate students to advanced assistant professors) whose careers studying organizations are underway, and who have demonstrated an interest in and an aptitude for expanding their thinking about organizations towards other disciplines. An important part of the institute is that it is interdisciplinary; it brings together a cohort of highly promising young researchers from a wide range of fields and universities.
From a pool of incredibly competitive applicants, co-directors Bob Gibbons (Sloan School of Management and Economics, MIT; CASBS fellow 1994-95 and 2014-15) and Woody Powell (Graduate School of Education and Sociology, Stanford; CASBS fellow 1986-87 and 2008-09) are pleased to announce the 2017 participants below.
