A main characteristic of late modern society is the decline of the grand narratives of family, church, government, and nation. The decline of these narratives, as well as the authority of the institutions constituted in and by them, has left an open space. This seems to exert an almost gravitational pull on other narratives and other institutions, all of which are eager to occupy the space left open. With this conference, we are particularly interested in exploring, analyzing, discussing, and critiquing the phenomenon of organizational socialization, i.e., what happens when corporations step in and strive to fill this void.
