Society of Latin American Studies 2011 Conference
8-10 April, University of St Andrews, UK
Call for Papers: "International Business and Management: Theorising Latin America"
There is growing interest in regional cultural landscapes as a relevant aspect to understand dynamics of international business and management (IBM). Interestingly, whilst this is central to debates about globalisation, the aim is to move beyond globalisationís homogenising discourse (i.e., world systems theory) and be more inclusive of existing varieties of capitalism. This panel aims to take an important step to join that discussion by discussing the current state of theory, research and practice in IBM in Latin America. Looking at this question opens a much needed space not only to give voice to the Latin American perspective in international business and management, but also to challenge Euro-centrism in business theorisation. The panel invites theoretical and research-based pieces that help to reflect on questions, such as: Can there be talk of a Latin American perspective in International Business Management (IBM) theory that emerges from its own particular geopolitical positionality? How much does a Latin American perspective share or differ with dominant perspectives of IBM? What is (or is there) a regional taxonomy (i.e., a Latin American perspective) based on IBM experiences in Latin American countries? Brief abstracts (250-300 words) should be sent to Jenny K Rodriguez
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Natalia Rocha-Lawton (email@example.com). The deadline for abstract submissions is 7 January 2011.
