Working on the Dark Side: A Workshop for New Research on Organizational Misconduct
Saturday, Aug 4 2012 4:15PM - 7:15PM at Sheraton Boston Hotel in Independence East
The current economic environment and the persistence of corporate scandals are increasing the need for academics to take up misconduct as a critical and coherent area of inquiry. To date, empirical research on these related phenomena (such as fraud, corruption, misbehaviour, deviance, illegality, etc.) has been sporadic. However, we believe this area of scholarship has the potential to make an important and cohesive impact on the Academy. This PDW seeks to provide hands on development of participants' working papers who will be matched with senior mentors: Blake Ashforth, Art Brief and Donald Palmer and to build a community of scholars currently working on organizational misconduct. We are aiming for an intimate session of no more than 15 papers, and so encourage those interested to contact the organizers as soon as possible to secure their places. Interested scholars should submit drafts of papers to the organizers by June 1; in certain circumstances, detailed outlines will be acceptable.
