    Dear Colleagues,

    Please note that we are currently accepting work-in-progress paper submissions for the second part of the 2021AoM PDW "Experiments in Institutional Theory and Strategy Research", where facilitators will provide you with in-depth feedback on your work in progress.

    The workshop is scheduled for July 30th 2021 from 12:00PM to 3:00PM Eastern Time ("Real-time Open" virtual session).

    Facilitators include: Brandy Aven (Carnegie Mellon U.), Denis Grégoire (HEC Montréal), Derek Harmon (U. of Michigan), Olenka Kacperczyk (London Business School), Hazhir Rahmandad (MIT), and Tyler Wry (U. of Pennsylvania).

    The workshop is composed of two parts:
    (1) The first segment begins with a panel discussion addressing the potential of experimental paradigms and measures to facilitate novel research on institutions and strategy and providing an overview of recent contributions of experimental methods to the advancement of knowledge. Directly after the panel discussion, the PDW features a showcase research presentation titled "Institutions and social evaluations in a lab" by Alex Bitektine.
    (2) After a short break, the second segment of the program consists of a paper development workshop. Here, the facilitators provide in-depth feedback on work-in-progress research submitted in advance by workshop participants. Papers should be related to the workshop theme and can be in various developmental stages; both proposals and full manuscripts will be considered.

    If you are interested in receiving feedback on your work in progress and participating in the second segment (paper development), please submit your manuscript by email to both workshop organizers, Oliver Schilke ( and Alex Bitektine (, no later than July 15, 2021.

    Best regards,
