Sometimes it seems that all factors come together to create a great academic event - dazzling nature, good company, great food, inspiring ideas, sharp debates, etc. The emlyon workshop in Chamonix had all this and more. In it, PhD and postdocs discussed each other's papers with also the benefit of comments from senior academics. It was super enriching for my work and overall just very fun.
In the end of march, I had the wonderful opportunity to present my academic work on Bureaucracy and Knowledge Work at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) following an invitation from Professor Paul du Gay from the Department of Organization (IOA). The event brought together members of the VELUX and POVI groups at CBS and also included a presentation by Bernardo Zacka on his work on street-level bureaucracy. My talk examined how bureaucratic structures shape what counts as expertise and knowledge work dynamics in organizations. The comments were superb and it was energizing to meet fellow scholars interested in formal organization in my field! Full details here: https://cbs.nemtilmeld.dk/44/it-5CPW8RM7,19867,30726/
