Studying Paradox and Social Issues – Virtual Panel and Paper Development Session

Dear Colleagues,

Join the community of paradox scholars for a virtual panel (first part) and paper development session (second part) on May 25th, 2021 to support researchers studying societal challenges and/or paradox on Tuesday, May 25, 2021. We will host two separate sessions to allow for attendance from different time zones:

09:00-11:00 (GMT+02:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

16:00-18:00 (GMT+02:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

Each session will have an expert panel, discussion and a PDW session where attendees are invited to join experts to provide feedback on already selected working papers.

Paradox theory offers a relevant lens to understand the tensions underpinning social issues and can shed new light on the efforts required to navigate them – on and across levels of analysis. We are excited to have Jonatan Pinkse (Manchester University) Paul Tracey (University of Cambridge) and Tobias Hahn (ESADE) joining us as panelists and discussants for the first session and, Garima Sharma (Georgia State University), Sophie Bacq (Indiana University) and Wendy K. Smith (University of Delaware) joining us for the second session.

We invite the social and/or paradox community to come together and join us for a lively panel, paper discussions, and networking opportunities.
The session aims to evoke discussion about the potential contributions paradox, and the paradox community, can make to tackling social issues, which we hope will lead to further discussion and future paper collaborations.

Deadline to register: Monday 24th May, 2021
