PURPOSE. The main objective of this joint Paper Development Workshop offered by the EGOS Standing Working Group = SWG 07 ("Institutions and Knowledge") and by SWG 11 ("Multinational Corporations: Social Agency and Institutional Change") is to provide junior scholars with extensive feedback on their current research by leading researchers of the field and to help them develop their papers into publishable manuscripts. Compared to the various sub-themes focusing on institutional theory-related research, this workshop will rely more on small group discussions and include pragmatic issues related to publishing. The workshop is targeted at early career researchers and doctoral students, but is open to all scholars. We invite original work, both empirical and conceptual.
Accepted papers will be briefly presented and thoroughly discussed in round table-sessions with two established scholars per table.
Senior faculty will include Florian Becker-Ritterspach, Susanne Blazejewski, Marie-Laure Djelic, Gili Drori, Mike Geppert, Royston Greenwood, Renate Meyer, Trish Reay, Arndt Sorge and Peter Walgenbach.
The workshop takes place on Wednesday, July 4, 2012, between 9:00 and 14:00. The day will start with a short discussion of current topics and challenges in the field followed by round tables with the presentation and discussion of the accepted papers.
All participants are expected to have read the papers of their fellow session presenters and be ready to contribute to the discussion. The workshop is limited to no more than 16 papers.
APPLICATION. All scholars interested in developing their papers towards publishable articles are invited to apply. However, preference will be given to the PhD and early career scholars. To be considered as an early career scholar the applicant needs to have completed her/his doctoral thesis within the last three years.
