Morality as Organizational Practice

The 19th workshop of the section “Cultures of Work” of the German Association of Cultural Anthropology and Folklore Studies (dgv), November 10–12, 2021



The online workshop gathers contributions on the subjective perspectives of actors (employees, freelancers, customers, and other stakeholders) on the moralization of organizations and on morality as organizational practice. It asks how they are affected by discourses on morality, how such discourses change organizational culture, hiring practices, work standards or modalities of employment.

The keynote will be given by Ellen Hertz (Neuchâtel). The workshop is preceded by a podium debate (in German) on “Gut arbeiten? Perspektiven auf Verantwortung und Gerechtigkeit in Unternehmen”, bringing together employers, union representatives, human resource officers, and scholars for a discussion of responsibility and justice in enterprises.

All events will be streamed online.
