Professor Russ Vince

Professor Russ Vince has won the 2014 ‘That's Interesting Award from the European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS) for his paper: ‘The Unconscious and Institutional Work’.

The award was presented to Professor Vince at the 31st EGOS Colloquium in Athens. The annual award, which is sponsored by the Aalto University School of Economics, Finland, is presented to papers that advance a particularly challenging new idea.

The selection committee comprised of members of the EGOS Board, editorial members of the journal Organization Studies, and members of the EGOS Colloquium organizing committee. The winning paper must cross intellectual boundaries, challenge taken-for-granted assumptions, attract the reader's attention and make an original argument. 

Professor Russ Vince commented:

“It is a pleasure and an honour to be the recipient of the EGOS ‘That’s Interesting Award’ for my paper presented at the EGOS Colloquium in 2014. I wrote the paper to make a critical contribution to our current ways of thinking about institutional logics, but I never imagined that the paper would receive such support and recognition. I am very grateful to the EGOS selection committee and to Aalto University School of Economics for their encouragement of new ideas and innovative thinking about organization studies.”
