The European Group on Organization Studies (EGOS) organizes an annual conference about organizations, organizing and society. The event is interdisciplinary and covers numerous intellectual and scientific debates about the dynamic of organizations and organizing.

A sub-theme (convened by Janet Merkel, Stefan Haefliger and me) was about “Co-workers, Hackers & Makers: Transforming and Making Visible Work Practices“.

22 papers discussed how collaborative communities, collaborative spaces, collaborative movements transform and/or make visible (new) work practices. Researchers in Management & Organization Studies, Economic Geography, Urban Sociology, MIS… participated to the discussion.
