Abstract and Keywords
This chapter explores the management and organization studies (MOS) literature concerned with the relationships between identity, space, and place. The authors define identity-related terms and highlight the principal ways in which space is conceptualized in MOS. They then examine three categories of empirical and theoretical studies linking organized space and processes of identity and identification: workspaces designed to enable highly interactive modes of working; homes, where work is increasingly taking up residence; and spaces that facilitate identity change in ways unanticipated by managements. The authors then make suggestions for future research and conclude by highlighting the powerful dynamic reciprocal connections between space and individual and organizational identities.
