When: July 31st, 2021, 8:00 – 10:00am (UTC-4) (5:00 – 7:00am San Francisco, 2:00 – 4:00pm Paris, 8:00 – 10:00pm Singapore)
Format: Synchronous Live Open (no recordings, session includes live presentations from the panelists as well as interactive discussions at virtual roundtables)
Organization and management scholarship is increasingly considering the importance of intricate orchestrations of verbal, visual, and other semiotic resources in the construction, maintenance, and change of organizational realities (e.g., Bell, Warren, & Schroeder, 2014; Boxenbaum, Jones, Meyer, & Svejenova, 2018; Höllerer et al., 2019; Toraldo, Islam, & Mangia, 2016). However, genuinely multimodal research is impeded by the limitations of our predominantly verbal publication formats. Cultural, technical, and/or legal restrictions prompt researchers to "translate" multimodal insights into linear written text, which requires substantial skill and may counteract the contributions of a multimodal perspective. Successfully publishing genuinely multimodal organization research (e.g., Lefsrud, Graves, & Phillips, 2018; Zilber, 2018) without losing valuable contributions in translation requires novel strategies for fitting multimodal insights into existing publication formats and/or the creation of publication formats that are more conducive to multimodal forms of knowledge dissemination.
In this PDW, scholars in organization and management theory who have successfully published multimodal research will discuss their experiences and practices-in-use with participants.

Requirements: While no pre-registration for this PDW is required, we would ask you to share experiences with ongoing research projects, introduce emerging research ideas, or prepare pressing questions as a basis for in-depth discussions at different roundtables.
The PDW will be designed as a highly interactive workshop that provides all participants with concrete takeaways.
