Cfps__Theme Calls_Valuation Studies

[Dos nuevos llamados a contribur en Valuation Studies]

In 2020, Valuation Studies initiated a new phase. As the editorial ‘Towards a Reformulation’ explains in more detail, we call this new phase valuation as a problem. The overall aim of this new phase is to strengthen Valuation Studies as a platform for curated academic conversations on valuation. In order to achieve this goal, we have introduced an important shift in how we manage submissions. New submissions will need to be in relation to an open Theme Call. The purpose of this change is to foster a more focused discussion around particular issues of valuation.

Theme Calls are curated by the journal’s editorial board and guest editors. The process to contribute to Theme Calls has two steps. First, authors are invited to formally manifest interest in the call by submitting an extended abstract (maximum 1000 words). The abstract will be evaluated by the editors of the Theme. Second, papers resulting from accepted proposals will then undergo an anonymous peer-review process. Depending on the submissions and accepted papers, Theme Calls will become special sections, an issue or several issues in Valuation Studies. There are two Theme Calls currently open.

Theme call 1: Valuation as a semiotic, narrative, and dramaturgical problem: re-opening the toolbox of valuation studies. Editors: Fabian Muniesa (Mines ParisTech), José Ossandón (Copenhagen Business School) (more information about the call here).

Theme call 2: Digitizing Valuation. Editors: Francis Lee (Chalmers University of Technology), Andrea Mennicken (London School of Economics), Jacob Reilley (Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg), Malte Ziewitz (Cornell University) (more information about the call here).

Cfp_5th LAEMOS Colloquium, Havana. Sub Theme 12. Valuation devices and processes of organizing

Call for Paper 5th LAEMOS Colloquium Latin American and European Meeting on Organization Studies. Havana, Cuba, 2-5 April 2014. Sub Theme 12. Valuation devices and processes of organizing. Sub theme Conveners: José Ossandón (Copenhagen Business School & Instituto de Investigación en Ciencias Sociales, Universidad Diego Portales, Chile), Martin Kornberger (Copenhagen Business School, Denmark), Christian Frankel (Copenhagen Business School, Denmark), Tomás Ariztía (Universidad Diego Portales, Chile)


Economic sociologists, anthropologists of markets, organization theorists, accounting scholars and others have brought the notion of value (back) on the agenda. In this context value is not understood as a noun but as a specific social material practice: rather than trying to define value as essence, the focus is on valuation practices and technologies of valuing. Here it becomes central to follow the trials (experiments, sales, revenue lists) and devices (rankings, ratings, surveys) that make things – firms, consumers, goods – comparable, accountable, rankable, in short: valuable.
