CFP: British Academy of Management, 2013

The 2013 British Academy of Management (BAM) conference will be held by the University of Liverpool at Aintree Racecourse on September 10-12, 2013.  Organizers are seeking submissions for the
Management and Business History Track, which is chaired by Kevin Tennent. This track "aims to encourage the growing number of management and business historians who work in business schools and social science departments to engage in constructive debate with other social scientists." In relation to the 2013 conference theme, "Managing to Make a Difference," attention is drawn to the historical impact of management practice within society. Papers on the relationship between management and the community, whether from the perspective of community perceptions of business, or with an interest in how business has shaped a particular community over time, are especially welcome, as are those dealing with the legacy of the past, and how it has shaped present-day businesses and communities. Please see the full call for papers for a more detailed description.
    Submissions will be open on January 15 and close on February 26, 2013. Proposals for full papers (6,000-8,000 words), developmental papers (1,000-2,000 words), and Workshop events are all welcome.
    Ph.D. students are encouraged to apply for the Doctoral Symposium event, which will take place on September 9. The first 100 doctoral students to register for this event receive free registration for the conference. More details about the meeting, including submission instructions, will be posted on the BAM Conference website as they become available.
