Abstract:

In this paper we argue that group meetings are an overlooked structure in the current conversations regarding group and organizational temporality. Meetings are both instrumental and expressive social forms (Schwartzman, 1986) that are inherently temporal and communicative. Prior research on time has used meetings as the unit of analysis to study group interactions, but none has considered the unique position of meetings as a socio-temporal form and communication structure. Following the theoretical framework proposed by Ballard and Seibold (2003), we suggest that meetings both shape and are shaped by organizational membersí shared experience of time.
