Networks, Organisations and Men: Concepts and Interrelations

Teemu Tallberg ()

Abstract: Research on menís networks and homosociality in and around organisations can produce knowledge on organisational power relations, and contribute to the efforts to promote equality in working life. The search for a conceptual framework to study these issues arises in this paper from my ongoing work on men's social networks and gendered power in and around organisations.

Men give each other social support through networks in which formal and informal relationships intermingle, but networks are also contexts of competition and oppression, and of construction of masculinities that are in hierarchical relations with each other and with femininities. For studying the networks men have with each other in work organisations I suggest a broader starting point that contextualises these homosocial networks with menís other personal relations, and integrates different perspectives deriving from social network analysis, critical studies on men and organisational studies.
