In symbolic interactionism there is a renewed interest in management and organisational analysis. Over the past years, for example, Timothy Hallett has pointed out the neglect of interaction within management fields and argued for the study of “inhabited institutions”. This concept has been taken up by Judson G. Everitt who pursues this strand of research in his recent book “Lesson Plans: The Institutional Demands of Becoming a Teacher”.
Alexandra H. Vinson‘s (@ahvinson) review of “Lesson Plans” has just been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction. She describes the book as “a much-needed addition to the body of work on professional socialization”.
