Sub-theme 65: Visual studies and seeing the unnoticed in organizations
sub-theme aims to bring together researchers interested in deepening and
broadening our understanding of the visual in organization studies. It asks how
can we identify productive ways through which visual and discursive research
can intersect, towards affording visual methods a more equitable standing in
the field? We are extremely pleased to announce that Prof Emma
Bell has agreed to deliver an opening address and that Prof
Sam Warren and A/Prof Harriet Short will deliver a
visual pattern analysis workshop in our sub-theme.
are invited that either: outline current visual organizational research; or
advance conceptual or methodological understanding of why and how to see the
unnoticed and unspoken in organization. Please consider presenting you research
visually, for example through visual storytelling, video essay, photographic
installation, collage, illustration, or material artefacts.
questions that submissions might address include, but are not limited to:
which ways can visual approaches explore beauty, imperfection or ugliness in
What novel and unexpected insights can visual research create, and what new
theorizing does it facilitate?
specific concepts, practices and processes are involved in a visual
organizational project, including how research participants are engaged (e.g.
in co-production) and how to communicate the outcomes of visual organizational
How can visual methods enable us to see through organizational logics and
discourses, and which everyday organizational phenomena have so far gone
unnoticed and how might they be illuminated?
might visual approaches further shift the gaze in the field to see
organizational intersubjectivities in more pluralistic, non-binary, inclusive
What aesthetics, embodiments and affects are experienced in (co-)production of
visual research, and how can they be consciously articulated?
can visual approaches decolonize and/or empower disenfranchised groups in
organizational research? In which ways can visual approaches be used to shine
light on taken-for-granted discourses and expose problematic organizational
histories (e.g. colonization, imperialism, oppression, exploitation, fraud,
what ways can methodologies draw on visual materials, multimodal texts and
other artifacts, and how might such approaches be used to make sense of, or
give sense to organizational narratives?
How might alternative conceptual lenses inform and refocus our development of

Organisational and Social Dynamics
of the Flies: A psychoanalytic view of the gang and its processes*
Professor Mark Stein
Dame Ruth Silver
this Scientific Meeting, and drawing on William Golding’s classic novel ‘Lord
of the Flies’, Mark will explore ganging phenomena. Mark argues that, following
a trauma, ganging may develop in private, public and voluntary sector
organizations, as well as in governments. He utilises psychoanalytic and
especially Kleinian ideas to examine these themes. Worryingly, he argues,
precisely because of the widespread trauma that will inevitably be left in
their wake, phenomena such as climate change, famine, wars and pandemics could
lead to the pervasive spread of ganging processes.
