The first of these articles is a classic foundational work on legitimacy, a central concept in neo-institutional theory. The second contemporary work concerns fields, also central to institutional theory, while engaging both micro and macro perspectives in the roles of individuals and institutions in field change. If you are unable to access the readings, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.To help foster engaging discussion during our live gathering on the zoom platform, we have created a discussion forum for participants to share questions and thought-starters ahead of time. Please visit https://sites.psu.edu/ihmaphdnetwork to read others' observations and share your thoughts. The facilitators will begin the live reading group session with a brief summary of the articles, then offer initial questions for discussion by all participants. Participants are welcome to surface questions and engage to their level of comfort. Due to global differences in internet bandwidth availability, participants are welcome to join the zoom platform discussion in video mode or in audio-only mode.About the IHMA Foundations in Humanistic Management Reading Group: This series is hosted by the Humanistic Management PhD Network for the purpose of supporting new scholars intellectually, broadening awareness of existing theory, and framing opportunities for future research. Each month we will consider a small number of significant contemporary and classic readings, and discuss in a virtual environment to share perspectives on incorporating humanistic ideas such as dignity and well-being into management scholarship and practice. Preparation is encouraged, but not required, and scholars of all levels and interests are welcome. We especially encourage participants to suggest future reading topics. Recent participant suggestions have included Claus Dierksmeier on virtue ethics in business, Jonathan Haidt on moral foundations theory, and scholarship on the transformation of business schools.
