PhD defence: Agnieszka Nowinska

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Agnieszka Nowinska has submitted her thesis entitled: Ships and Relation-Ships: Tie Formation in the Sector of Service Intermediaries in Shipping

 
Torsdag, 20 september, 2018 - 11:00 to 13:00

The aim of the dissertation is to shed light on the complex determinants of tie formation. Extant research has linked similarity and dissimilarity (respectively homophily and heterophily) and different proximities types to the likelihood of tie formation in a linear way. However, there are significant differences in how ties form depending on 1) tie characteristics (formal vs informal), group belonging (female vs. male) 3) types of proximities involved and their interplay, 4) temporal dynamics. Therefore, to fill gaps in the literature, this dissertation addresses the question on how the likelihood of tie formation is correlated with 1) the interplay of geographical and industry space proximities in formal inter-firm ties over time, 2) organizational and geographical proximity in case of formal employer-employee ties after organizational failure 3) gender homophily for females and males in case of informal employee-employee ties. I use the context of shipping intermediaries and qualitative and quantitative methods to study these questions.
