Description: As part of the Critical Management Studies Professional
Development Workshop programme for 2012 the division is sponsoring a
one-day paper development workshop to be held at the University of
Massachusetts Boston Campus (Boston Harbour).
Timetable: The workshop will run from 10.30am to 5.30am on Friday August 3 and includes six paper streams with a strict limit of six accepted papers per stream.
Aim: The aim of the workshop, as with previous events (the two day events that CMS has sponsored in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Montreal) is to maximise discussion around, and development of, full length papers in preparation for publication. In order to maximize discussion, authors will not present their own papers, but rather participants will be asked to present and discuss each others' papers - this is also a PowerPoint free event!
1. Ethics and embodiment (convenors: Alison Pullen and Carl Rhodes)
2. Sexuality and organizational analysis (convenors: Albert Mills and Torkild Thamen)
3. Cooperatives (convenors: Ana Maria Perado and George Cheney)
4. Critical perspectives on the globally mobile professional and managerial class (convenors: Steve McKenna, Ravishankar Mayasandra-Nagaraja and David Weir)
5. Organizing revolutions in everyday life (convenors: Sarah Stookey, Jonathan Murphy, Malin Virpi and Marjo Siltaoja)
6. CMS and Business Journalism: Exploring a Difficult Relationship (convenors: Richard Hull and Todd Bridgman)
Full call for papers: Full stream details are attached or can be downloaded from this address: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22495152/UMASS_CMS_workshop_call_for_papers.pdf
Location: The workshop will be held in the Campus Centre at the UMass Boston whom is sponsoring the event (details on how to travel to the location from AoM hotels/conference centre will be circulated closer to the time).
Abstracts: Abstract should be no less than 500 words in length (1 full A4 page in 12 point) and include full author details.
Deadlines: Abstract should be submitted by May 1 to the stream convenors. Stream convenors will endeavour to return abstract decisions by May 15 - please note that there is a strict limit of six papers per stream. Full papers should be submitted to the stream convenors by July 1 for distribution to stream participants. Please also send a copy to the workshop organization (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Paper Presentation: In order to maximize discussion, authors will not present their own papers. Stream participants will be asked to present for discussion each other's papers.
AoM papers: It is expected that papers submitted for inclusion in the workshop stream will not be scheduled for presentation in the main AoM Conference Programme.
Organizer: Craig Prichard (Massey University, Aotearoa-New Zealand)
The motivation for the workshop is simple: neither the regular PDW nor the main program events at the AoM give us enough opportunity to engage in in-depth discussion of papers in critical management studies. So the workshop will be organized as a series of parallel streams (working groups). Each stream will consist of people who have contributed papers on a well-defined topic (perhaps with some invited discussants), and the group will work together over the course of the day-and-a-half, going around the room discussing the papers in turn.
In order to maximize discussion, authors will not present their own papers, but rather participants will be asked to present and discuss other presenters' papers. We will also arrange a couple of plenary sessions and some social time when all the participants come together.
