Practice and Process Studies have a strong tradition at Warwick Business School. The Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies has been running since 2013, bringing together scholars interested in the advancement of this academic area. The Summer School is multi-disciplinary and open to a variety of approaches and sensitivities.

In 2022, our signature event — the Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies — will be delivered as a hybrid event. We will take this opportunity to create a useful online resource for networking and exchange of ideas among practice and process scholars. We aim to create a lasting academic community characterised by open dialogue, discussion, and joint exploration. We trust that built on the solid foundations of the Warwick Summer School on Practice and Process Studies, our network can be a success. Your support and participation are key!

2022 Theme: Studying Emotion or Affect?

Each summer school we consider an advanced theme in practice and process studies. This year we will explore the study of emotion and affect. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the summer school we will debate how theories of, and empirical research on, emotion and affect intersect and differ. We are pleased to announce that Charlene Zietsma Professor, Smeal College of Business, Pennsylvania State University, will speak to us about her work on emotional energy and emotions in organizations. Paul Stenner, Professor of Social Psychology at The Open University will talk about his work on theorising emotion and affect, and the emotional organization. In addition, Professor Marianna Fotaki, Warwick Business School, will share insights from her work on the importance of thinking critically about emotion and affect in organization studies.
