Dear Colleagues, Caros Colegas
I would like to draw your attention to the call for papers (please find attached the Portuguese version) as follows:
CALL FOR PAPERS (Cadernos EBAPE.BR)
Special Issue: Development-Management/Development&Management (in Portuguese and English)
Guest Editors: Bill Cooke (Lancaster, England); Alex Faria (EBAPE/FGV, Brazil)
This call contests the extending representational reach of the North-American management academy across the world. We particularly seek papers that are both critical about and see possibilities for emancipation(s) and liberation(s) in:
(i) Development-Management: The longstanding and overlooked relations between management and development; how development interventions are managed in so called “developing countries” and articulated in so called “developed nations” or “advanced economies”; types of management and development mobilized by emerging economies and in South-South designs of development(s);
(ii) Development&Management: The takeover of development by management and business including the Bottom of the Pyramid and critiques thereof; the role of think tanks, foundations, consultancies, business schools, and First-World scholarly associations in the sustaining; the silencing/embrace of management scholarship and scholarly associations in/of “other worlds”;
(iii) The fissure/cracks between and within development-management and development&management (hence, development-management/development&management); The relations between the two fields, in practice, disciplinarily, and theoretically; the invisibilizing of poverty and poverty alleviation scholarship; the denial/overshadowing of the state as management/development actor; managements and developments from/within the diversity of worlds and views in an era of globalization(s).
Within these broad categories, we are keen to invite empirical and theoretical work, work which focuses on the micro-levels of development practices right through to that which addresses the global scale. Cadernos EBAPE.BR is published in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, and is an open-access online journal http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_serial&pid=1679-3951&lng=en&nrm=iso. All articles will be published in Portuguese and English. It is among the highest ranked Brazilian journals. It is not therefore an international journal according to the Anglo-Saxon Academy. We are still optimistic about receiving high level submissions in either language.
Submissions should follow the author guidelines for Cadernos EBAPE.BR which can be found at http://www.scielo.br/revistas/cebape/iinstruc.htm. Submission deadline is August 31 2012, with initial reviewing to be completed by November 30 2012, revisions due by January 30 2013, final decisions by the end of February 2013, and publication in the Volume 11 Issue 2 June 2013.
Any questions regarding the special issue can be sent to:
