PhD conference on Critical Management Studies (Leicester, September 16-17, 2014)
Aus der Ankündigung (https://www2.le.ac.uk/conference/critical):
The conference is intended to create an environment in which concepts of, and approaches to, being critical can be openly discussed without the aim to arrive at a consensual definition but rather to explore various possibilities. PhD students are invited to present on some aspect of criticality in their own research for 15 minutes, concerning their theory or methodology or else, with ample space for discussion to follow. Each participant is expected to act as a respondent to someone else’s paper.
Academic respondents are to be confirmed, but staff members from the University of Leicester, Lund University, the University of Essex, the Université catholique de Louvain and others have expressed their interest to participate.
The organisers are currently planning a closing roundtable discussion about the ‘critical turn’ in various social scientific fields to compare their histories and draw out similarities and differences.
Abstracts, of 300-500 words, should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 May 2014, including your name, affiliation and contact details. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee of the conference, and participants will be notified of acceptance of their papers the end of May 2014. Conference papers in the range of 4-8,000 words will be expected by 18 August 2014.
