Call for Applications
Since 2011, the Extreme Context Research (ECR) community has brought together
a growing number of scholars, from PhD students to more senior academics. Considering the success of the “Extreme Contexts
Virtual Workshop Series” held since 2020 (see more on www.organizingextremecontexts.org),
and the popularity of the dedicated Extreme Contexts sub-theme at the EGOS Colloquia, this PDW, hosted by the EGOS Standing
Working Group (SWG) 14 “Organizing in and for Extreme Contexts”, will offer
relevant continuity and provide opportunities for budding ECR scholars.
Acknowledging the fragmentation of the field and the recent efforts to provide integrative reviews to structure it, the main goal of this PDW is to offer opportunity to engage in theorizing and building incremental knowledge. Main targets are PhD students and young researchers to help them connect and join the ECR community.
The PDW is structured around insightful presentations
of experienced researchers in extreme contexts and interactive sessions supporting better theorizing and cross-fertilisation.
Further, the networking opportunities offered would facilitate integration of young scholars in the ECR community.
This PDW is designed to enhance cross-fertilization within the community and advance theorizing in extreme contexts. We aim at including a wide range of scholars interested in extreme contexts. Submitters will be asked to submit a paper and to provide feedback to other members of their subgroups.
Presentations from experienced researchers will also highlight opportunities to improve theorizing and creation of incremental knowledge in the field. We are eager to receive papers from PhD students and early career scholars dealing with various extreme empirical settings, and are open to innovative methods and theoretical lenses.
Please submit – via the EGOS website – by April 30, 2022 a single application document (.docx or .pdf file) that contains the following mandatory sections:
On the first page: name + contact details, including title, postal address, e-mail address, phone number
The paper should be 30 pages at the maximun, double spaced, not including references. A short paragraph (200 words) at the top of your paper will be needed to get your full details and for you to mention what specific feedback is expected from the PDW.
submitters will be requested to upload their papers along with a 5-minute presentation specifying the type of feedback or
support that you are looking for with your submission.
