Book Launch - Digital Organizing


ursula + emil

On Friday January 17, 2020, Associate Professor Ursula Plesner and Assistant Professor Emil Husted launched their book: ‘Digital Organizing – Revisiting themes in organization studies’. The authors had promised to provide answers to questions such as: Why does a book on digital organizing open with stories from the 1830s? What does it mean to speak organizationally about digitalization (rather than digitally about organization)? Why does digitalization invite us to explore the relationship between neologisms like ‘co-creation’ and ‘produsage’ and more classical organizational concepts? They explained their understanding of ‘the digital’ and ‘the organizational’, and argued for the continuing relevance of classical organizational themes and concepts along more contemporary themes and terms that describe digital organizing.

About the book:

In Digital Organizing, Plesner & Husted explore digitalization from a truly organizational perspective. Challenging celebratory or technological determinist accounts of ‘the digital revolution’, the book discusses how digital technologies impact upon various aspects of organizations such as structure, production, collaboration, knowledge, communication, legitimacy, and power.
