Call for Papers

Track Arts for Business and Society at EURAM Conference 2019

The Conference of the European Academy for Management EURAM will take place in Lisbon 26-28th of June 2019. With the theme „Exploring the Future of Management: Facts, Fashion and Fado“, the conference organizers invite you to participate in the debate about how to explore the future of management. The track „Arts for Business and Society“ puts arts at the core of ‘business for society’ research. Deadline for submission is 15th January 2019.
Management is about doing things through people. Who are these new people? The behaviour of organisations vis-à-vis society is increasingly scrutinised and its impact cannot be ignored. Strategy, behavioural sciences, business and society, networks, services and global value chains, entrepreneurship and innovation… these and many other topics can and will be discussed during EURAM 2019.
 
EURAM 2019 is intended to be a forum where new propositions and answers will be debated, where new theories will be exposed to address the many problems that challenge organisations and their management. Scholars, practitioners, and doctoral students and the whole community are welcome to a rich week with keynotes and roundtables, workshops, symposia, parallel sessions and so much more that Lisbon has to offer.
 
Track Business for Society General
 
The Business for Society General Track addresses how organizations interact with their social, political and natural environment. Consistently with the interdisciplinary nature of this field, the general track aims at cross-fertilisations with colleagues from economics, political sciences, sociology, philosophy, who investigate the conditions under which organizations may contribute to a sustainable and just development. Coherently with the scope of EURAM 2019 “ Exploring the Future of Management: Facts, Fashion and Fado”, the track welcomes work that explores how future demographic, political and technological trends challenge management scholars.
 
Subtrack Arts for Business and Society
 
This track welcomes contributions that put arts at the core of ‘business for society' research. Arts and management have been studied as separated concepts, looking at how the artists’ activities could be developed as businesses. Conversely, the track looks at arts as source of knowledge, by which management studies should inspire to get richer ways of understanding and dealing with human action.
 
Accordingly, it refers to the etymological meaning of art, which derives from the latin word Ar-tem (the practice of giving value to the human action) and formerly from the Aryan root Ar (moving onwards). Drawing on this ancient and very societal oriented roots, the track organizers welcome empirical and conceptual papers that address, even not exclusively, the following themes:
 
  • Performing and visual arts. Theatre, Dance, General Gymnastics, Magic, Mime, Music Opera, Puppetry, Ventriloquism. To look at as a not exhaustive list for business cases and ‘cases for business’.
  • Organizational aesthetics meant as the sensitive knowledge of organization. How does organizational aesthetics support us in contextualising artefacts, artifices, design and their symbolic meanings?
  • Creativity: the tool through which art engages humans in adding value. From industry creation to creative industries.
  • Arts and technology. How do technologies intertwine artistic experiences? And then how do they nurture the managerial knowledge? From sound technologies to multimedial platforms.
  • Arts and professional communities. Understanding the world of arts in those sector that are less concerned with current days’ creativity, such as archaeology or heritage professions, could open yet another stream of reflection on knowledge production and transfer.
  • Spacing arts. Physical spaces are never neutral in producing and cultivating art. From archaeological sites to urban renewal and smart cities, all these spaces can be addressed to foster to role of art in developing sustainable businesses for societies.
  • Sustainable action by integrating praxis, practice and practical wisdom (phronesis). Praxis allows considering the entwinement of performative actions, practices and practitioners, and the performative process of all of them as a holistic nexus.
