Place and space have long been the focus of studies of organizations (e.g. Bucher & Langley, 2016; Elsbach, 2004; Elsbach & Pratt, 2007; Tuan, 1974), but only recently were explored, mostly indirectly, in institutional studies. For example, recent work examines the role of place in institutional change on the organizational (Kellogg, 2009), community (Marquis & Battilana, 2009), field (Cartel, Boxenbaum, & Aggeri, 2018; Lounsbury, 2007; Ziestma & Lawrence, 2010; Zilber, 2018), or societal levels (Mair, 2012). Recent studies also explore the role of place in institutional work (Lawrence & Dover, 2015) and in reviving tradition (Dacin, Nasra, & Leithwood, 2009). Our symposium explores the situatedness of institutional dynamics. Through the presentation of four empirical studies, we will discuss how place impacts the salience, resonance, strength and scope of institutions.
