Identities in Organizations

  1. 1. Human Relations virtual special issue: Identities in organizations Human Relations virtual special issues bring together and highlight related research on a particular topic. Each collection is compiled and introduced by one of the journal’s editors. Readers can access our virtual special issue on Identities in organizations online here: http://journals.sagepub.com/page/hum/collections/virtual-special-issues/Identities- in-organizations Introduction Identities in organizations, and in particular as they relate to social relations in and around work, has become a well-established field of inquiry (Brown, 2015; Ybema et al., 2009). While one key strand of theorising focuses on conceptual issues relating to identi- ties – definitions, types, identity construction processes, different approaches to their study, etc. – another is concerned with how identities are relevant in explanations of significant organizational processes and outcomes, such as leadership, institutional change and the management of diversity. In combination, these streams of research have had profound impact on organization and management studies research, helping to focus the literature on people-in-context in processes of organizing. Human Relations has long championed identities research, and has published a con- siderable range of papers that has served to define the identities field and many recent papers that continue to extend the boundaries of identities scholarship. Eight of these have been selected for this virtual special issue. Sveningsson and Alvesson’s (2003) exceptionally well-cited piece helped render dominant the discursive approach to iden- tities and identity work. By exploring ‘identity’ in relation to issues of control and resistance, Gabriel (1999) has been important in positioning identity as a key concept in critical management studies. Beech’s (2011) paper has been instrumental in promoting conceptions of identities as always ‘in-progress’ and the role of liminality in identity construction. More recently, scholars have sought to forge connections between allied notions such as ‘career’ and its links to ‘identities’ and to reflect on what this reveals about unconscious desires (Hoyer and Steyaert, 2015) and ethics (Clarke and Knights, 2015). Increasingly, scholarship on identities is becoming more wide-ranging and more ambitious, with insightful commentaries on identities in relation to managerial athleti- cism (Johansson et al., 2017), motivation (Driver, 2017) and branding (Endrissat et al., 2017). This virtual special issue, of course, contains only a small selection of work on identi- ties in organizations, and interested readers will want to consult the dozens of papers on this topic published in Human Relations in recent years.
