CFP: 19th annual Dilemmas for Human Services International Research Conference
Submitted by Dr Hala Mansour
Northampton Business School is holding the 19th annual Dilemmas for Human Services International Research Conference from 12-14 September 2016. The link for the call for paper to the Conference 2016 is here.
The Dilemmas conferences date back to 1995, and are organised by researchers working at Keele University, Staffordshire University UK, the University of East London UK, Luleå University of Technology, Linköping University, and Linnaeus University, Sweden and now Northampton Business School. Theme of this year’s conference is change management and most of the discussion will be around managing change from different perspectives (Challenges, Ethics, Gender,……).
The international/national organising committee for the conference involves Professor Jim Barry, Professor John Chandler, Professor Elisabeth Berg, Luleå University of Technology Sweden and Emeritus Professor Mike Dent. Our organising committee is chaired by Dr Mairi Watson and Dr Jacky Holloway and the conference coordinator is Dr Hala Mansour.
We have now two remarkable keynote speakers accepted to participate: Prof Cliff Oswick from Case Business School and Prof Emma Bell from Keele University. We are also arranging to have another speaker talking about research and publications.
This year PhD students are invited to attend a Doctoral Consortium (DC), which takes place the 12th September, one day prior to the main conference. The DC provides a supportive space for younger scholars to present their work and to engage in critical reflection and discussions.
A number of publications have appeared from past conferences, and we anticipate this year being no different. We would welcome any suggestions or questions from you, please contact Dr Hala Mansour.
