|Description:||Embeddedness and Embedding Workshop|
|Location:||Gdansk, University of Gdansk, Poland|
|Subject:||The question of embeddedness has been recently raised to become one of the widely discussed issues of various contemporary social sciences. Embeddedness can be broadly understood as the degree to which individuals or organizations (firms, groups) are enmeshed and entangled in a given social construction or network. The workshop addresses the embeddedness of specific subjects (types of market, of production, finance, trade, organizations etc.) in the domains of social structure and networks of agents. This particular end-state and the related one of disembeddedness are principally addressed in the fields of new economic sociology, new institutionalism, business system approach, organization studies, as well as economic, social, urban and cultural geographies. These disciplines have developed or are developing convergent yet distinct treatments of embeddedness while focusing either on the subject, the object/domains, the levels or the directions of the process.
