In Corinne Bendersky's research, she tries to understand how phenomena that are generally studied in isolation and/or as static constructs function differently when they are examined in group and organizational contexts and as dynamically evolving processes. She studies workplace conflict, status and justice as well as the production and dissemination of integrative knowledge about organizations. Her contextualized and dynamic perspectives surface overlooked and sometimes counter-intuitive findings about these fundamental aspects of organizations.
