This PDW aims to contribute to the burgeoning study of emotions and institutions by creating an opportunity to discuss the possibilities and challenges of empirically investigating emotions in the context of institutional processes. Studying emotions from an institutional perspective requires a more socially embedded conceptualization and a more contextualized approach than survey scales of affect can reveal. This leads researchers working in this domain to face empirical challenges in collecting, analyzing and displaying emotions as data. While emotions have been studied extensively by researchers from psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and neurobiology, the appropriate lenses and methods by which to tackle emotions and their role in institutional dynamics is less understood. By bringing together renowned scholars, versed in distinct approaches and qualitative methodologies, we seek to develop expertise across the community of interested scholars to enable the continued growth of this important research stream within organizational theory. Senior scholars who have successfully studied emotions and institutions or emotions in other organizational contexts will walk attendees through their specific approaches for collecting and analyzing data on emotions. By creating a forum to share best practices and common pitfalls, the proposed PDW will help build and enhance the skills of researchers interested in conducting empirical research on emotions and institutions.
