The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scholars from various disciplines—organization and management theory, sociology, human resource management, consumption culture theory—sharing a common interest in the ‘sociology of convention’ also known as the ‘French pragmatist sociology’, and more specifically interested in The Economies of Worth framework, developed by Boltanski and Thévenot (2006 [1991]). This stream of research, and its associated framework, has emerged in France in the late 1980s, early 1990s, as a reaction to the limitations of the over-determinism of Bourdieu’s structural sociology and to account for the paradox of collective action inherent to individualistic sociological frameworks. Since then, it has been mobilized to investigate a variety of ecological, socio-technical and ethical controversies, the continuous search for compromises between various forms of the common goods within the capitalist system, or to unpack subtle dynamics of justification within and across markets and organizations.

The workshop will include two paper presentation sessions, featuring on-going empirical studies mobilizing the EW framework and/or some of its variant, and then a panel discussion with EW experts, about the potential and challenges of this framework in various disciplines.
