Institutions and Actorhood as Co‐Constitutive and Co‐Constructed: The Argument and Areas for Future Research
Renate E. Meyer and
Journal of Management Studies, 2020, vol. 57, issue 4, 898-910
We argue that in order to overcome the reductionism and essentialism in institutional theory there is a need to acknowledge that institutions and social actors are co‐constitutive and co‐constructed in processes of communication. We elaborate this argument by drawing on the phenomenological foundation of institutional theory and point to promising areas of future research: the multimodal nature of institutions, the mediated and mediatized character of modern communication, and the contestedness of all social orders and their legitimation.
