The Social Organisation of Marketing: A Figurational Approach to People, Organisations, and Markets
Congratulations to Dr John Connolly on the publication of his new book ‘The Social Organisation of Marketing: A Figurational Approach to People, Organisations, and Markets’. Co-edited with Paddy Dolan, this book examines the social processes which have shaped the development and organisation of various marketing practices and activities, and the markets associated with them.
Drawing on the figurational-sociological approach associated with Norbert Elias the contributors explain how various markets and related marketing practices and activities are organised, enabled and constrained by the actions of people at different levels of social integration. Collectively, The Social Organisation of Marketing provides insights into topics such as the consumption and of wine in China, the advertising of Guinness, the management of on-line communities in Germany, the corporate social responsibility strategies of multinational energy corporations in Africa, the concept of talent management in contemporary organisations, the child consumer in Ireland, and the constraining and enabling influences of the American corporate organisational structure.
John Connolly is a Senior Lecturer in the Marketing Group at Dublin City University Business School, Ireland. His research has examined advertising, aspects of sport, and organisational change from a figurational perspective.
Paddy Dolan is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Languages, Law and Social Sciences at Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland. His research interests include figurational sociology, childhood, sport, emotions and identities.
