Development and Globalization: Organizing Rhetoric and Power Convenors: Bettina Wittneben and Sadhvi Dar, University of Cambridge
4th International Critical Management Studies Conference 4th - 6th July
2005, Judge Institute of Management, University of Cambridge, UK, www.cms4.org
CALL FOR PAPERS
This stream will provide a new and exciting space for meaningful debate within the development field. We are inviting papers from diverse world views and are striving to facilitate not only new ways of apprehending perennial problems, but also, and most importantly, asking new questions about international organization.
Development and globalization employ rhetorics of progress and growth to legitimate their systems of power and domination. Discussing the differences and similarities between the organizational forms and structures that have been utilized over time and space is the aim of this stream. Scholars may also be interested in exploring how organizational structures will evolve beyond globalization, adding a future dimension.
The stream also includes an open workshop session on the conflicts between academia and practice of development. Arturo Escobar will be leading the discussion and presenting his own experiences.
Please submit your abstracts of no more than 1500 words to the e-mail address below by 1st October 2004.
