In this paper, we develop and test a theory of how unintended audiences create reaction costs for firms that use corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a signal. Reaction costs are costs that signal senders incur when unintended audiences react negatively to a true signal that was intended for another audience. We argue that activist hedge funds—...
Response to comments by D’Adderio, Glaser & Pollock (2019), Garud & Gehman (2019), and Shadnam (2019) on our earlier paper on when theories become self-fulfilling (Marti & Gond 2018, AMR)
Management researchers increasingly realize that some theories do not merely describe, but also shape social reality; a phenomenon known as “performativity.” However, when theories become performative or even self-fulfilling is still poorly understood. Taking this gap in the research as our starting point, we develop a process model to show that ne...
While many studies explain how social science theories shape social reality, few reflect critically on how such theories should shape social reality. Drawing on a new conception of social welfare and focusing on financial regulation, we assess the performative effects of theories on public policy. We delineate how research that focuses narrowly on...
Organizations have to cope with the complexity of their environment in order to survive. A considerable body of research has shown that organizations may respond to environmental complexity by creating internal complexity – for example, by expanding internal structures and processes.

This is an important debate, but it suffers from the fact that the role of financial theories remains uncle...
The German Research Foundation has approved funding for a scientific network. Over the next 3 years the network studies the relationship between societal grand challenges and new forms of organizing.
**** EGOS in Copenhagen 6-8 July 2017 **** Call for papers to sub-theme 20 Financialization and its Societal Implications: Rethinking Corporate Governance and Shareholders Convenors: Hugh Willmott, Emilio Marti, Jeroen Veldman Excerpt from CFP: The aim of this sub-theme is to empirically and conceptually explore the multifaceted politics of valuation, including both the politics in valuation practices as well as the role of valuation practices in the distribution of different kinds of resources. The sub-theme explicitly aims to include contributions using a variety of conceptual and methodological approaches and exploring a variety of empirical settings: What different forms of politics are part of and performed by practices of valuation? What can different approaches within social theory as well as pragmatist studies of valuation practices bring to our appreciation of these multifaceted politics? Are there conceptual gains in the interface between different approaches to the study of valuations? Submission of short papers open now until January 9, 2017 Full sub-theme description: http://bit.ly/2hjHkwc Important submission information: http://www.egosnet.org/2017_copenhagen/further_important_information Feel free to direct any questions to the convenors: Emilio Marti, University of Zurich, Switzerland, & Cass Business School, City University of London, United Kingdom, email@example.com Jeroen Veldman, Cass Business School, City University of London, United Kingdom, Jeroen.Veldman@cass.city.ac.uk Hugh Willmott, City University London, United Kingdom, & Cardiff University, UK, Hugh.Willmott.firstname.lastname@example.org
