INDUSTRY STUDIES ASSOCIATION
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP FOR EARLY CAREER SCHOLARS
The Early Career Development Committee of the Sloan Industry Studies Program (ISA) is pleased to announce the
Fourth Annual Professional Development Workshop (PDW) and Networking Dinner for early career industry studies scholars on Wednesday, May 5, 2010. The PDW will be held in conjunction with the Industry Studies Conference on May 6-7, 2010 in Chicago (http://www.industrystudies.pitt.edu/chicago10/index.html)
The PDW and Networking Dinner are intended to support early-career scholars engaged in industry studies research by providing career-related advice and the opportunity to form a network of junior and senior colleagues. Faculty development is a core component of the mission of the Industry Studies Association.
In addition, the PDW and Networking Dinner bring together scholars across the wide range of disciplines and industries represented by the ISA, enabling greater interdisciplinary collaboration.
"Early career" refers to a scholar who has completed a doctoral dissertation but is not yet tenured.
Please join us! We welcome both scholars new to the Industry Studies Association, and scholars who have attended ISA conferences and PDWs in the past.
The professional development workshop will be held on May 5, 2010 from noon until 6:00pm at Chicago’s Crowne Plaza Metro Hotel.
The workshop will include three panel discussions:
1. Performing and Publishing Industry Studies Research
2. Funding Sources and Strategies for Industry Studies Research
3. Finding Career Success & Happiness: Advice for Crafting a Fulfilling Academic Path
To foster informality, collegiality, and open discussion, the workshop will be limited to 50 participants, selected based on a short application. Lunch will be provided for all participants.
THE NETWORKING DINNER
We will end the day with a group dinner for early career scholars. The dinner is also open to scholars who are unable to attend the PDW, but are arriving for the main conference. The dinner provides a fun and informal setting to meet with and get to know other early career scholars and panelists, as well as past Sloan Industry Studies Fellows and past PDW participants.
The dinner will begin at 8pm at a nearby restaurant.
The Industry Studies Association sponsors both events, enabling the workshop and dinner to be offered without a registration fee. Please note that interested scholars may attend the PDW, the dinner, or both. PDW participants will receive preference for attending the dinner.
