In this introduction to the special issue, we first provide an illustrative overview of how food has been approached in organization studies. We focus on the organizing of food, that is the organizational efforts that leverage, shape, and transform food. Against this backdrop, we distinguish the agency of organizations and the agency of food and ex...
Article
Given the investment of public resources for supporting entrepreneurial growth, it is important to know whether such programs truly benefit innovative ventures. While prior research has indicated some benefits for growth outcomes, there is no clear consensus about the conditions for program effectiveness. We attribute this to the complex set of sel...
Chapter
We analyze how institutional persistence unfolds. Building on an historical analysis of 3,307 bottle labels in the Bordeaux wine community, France, between 1924 and 2005, we find that the persistence of a chateau tradition requires considerable effort at maintenance. Instead of greater compression and taken-for-grantedness, we propose that expansio...

This paper studies how complex field-positions, characterized by combinations of structural and cultural mechanisms, are associated with the non-imitation of dominant field-level practices. Theoretically, the notion of complex field-position complements prior institutional research on fieldpositions and non-imitation, which focuses primarily on str...

Many actors claim to be experts of specialized knowledge, but for this expertise to be perceived as legitimate, other actors in the field must recognize them as authorities. Using an automated topic-model analysis of historical texts associated with the U.S. amateur radio operator movement between 1899 and 1927, we propose a process model for lay-e...

One of the enduring insights about early-stage creative efforts is that their prospects for success depend on their ability to overcome a variety of liabilities of newness. In our study, we address one aspect of such liabilities: the ability to communicate credible claims about the merits of an idea when raising the funds required for execution. Th...
Article
Our study explores the discursive strategies of legitimation that organizations employ as they occupy different positions in an emergent institutional field. By examining both the frame-alignment strategies and the frame targets of two organizations in the U.S. wireless telegraphy field, we show how an organization’s position – and its positional c...
Article
Entrepreneurial action is embedded within a variety of complex social structures, not all of which can be as easily defined or measured as macro-institutional or micro-individual characteristics. Nonetheless, these multilayered structures collectively hold rich insights— before now underexamined—into the actual causal mechanisms that affect entrepr...

The present paper examines how a new, creative genre emerges out of a commodity-based industry. Building on the genre-emergence literature, the paper analyzes the Australian wine industry since the 1950s. Based on content analysis of a wide variety of sources, the study identifies four mechanisms that account for creative-genre emergence: shifting...
Article
This paper contributes to our understanding of categories. More specifically, we propose mythification as a process to explain the emergence of exemplars. Mythification occurs through processes of familiarization, social proof and validation, and heroization, which create shared meanings of an artifact among multiple audiences. We illustrate this p...
Article
Dans cet article, nous examinons l’emergence des identites collectives comme produit d’un projet politique coordonne par des activistes organises qui profitent d’opportunites politiques pour se mobiliser et remettre en cause un ordre concurrentiel etabli. L’analyse empirique porte sur le mouvement social identitaire des vins de garage, qui, dans le...
Article
Cultural domination in fields is often thought to favour uniformity, homogeneity and stability at the field level, and conformity and compliance at the actor level. Field domination emerges over time with the stabilization of an unambiguous hierarchy and is associated with an increasing institutionalization, structuration and ordering that occur mo...
Chapter
We define diffusion as the spread of something within a social system. Diffusion is the most general and abstract term, and it embraces such processes as contagion, mimicry, social learning, organized dissemination, etc. (Strang & Soule, 1998). While the home territory of diffusion is innovation (see Rogers, 2003 for an authoritative review), more...
