There is continued and increasing academic interest in responsible business - and how this interacts and informs management and organization strategy and practice (eg, Porter and Kramer, 2011). Recent scholarship and practice has put the UN Sustainable Development Goals and other corporate responsibility initiatives, such as B-corporation accreditation, centre stage in driving forward the agenda (eg. Voegtlin & Scherer, 2017; Moroz, et al., 2018).
At the same time, scholarship in management history has examined the origins and directions of of corporate responsibility (eg, Hoffman, 2007; Marens, 2008; Singleton, 2018) and the literature on ‘social movements’, the forerunners of contemporary concerns, is especially rich and diverse. For example, cooperatives (eg, Wilson, Webster and Vorberg-Rugh, 2013), credit unions (Ward and McKillop, 2005), mutuality (Batiz-Lazo and Billings, 2012), social entrepreneurship (eg, Murphy, et al., 2018), and religiously-grounded movements such as the Quakers (Prior and Kirby, 2006, Robertson, Korczynski and Pickering, 2007), to name a few. Though this wide range of work focuses largely on historical events and chronologies, what contemporary scholars of socially responsible management can learn from this rich and varied history has received much less attention. This special issue seeks to redress this balance.
This event follows up on a SIG event in Newcastle in April and papers from it are intended to feature in an SI of the Journal of Management History.
This event will take place on 10 January 2019
Who Should Attend
Management scholars in the strategy, governance and international business fields as well as management and business historians. In addition there should be cross-disciplinary interest with the event potentially able to attract law scholars and legal historians.
Benefits of Attendance
There will be opportunities for cross-pollination or networking but the main aim is to provide a first presentation and review of papers to appear in an already approved Special Issue of the Journal of Management History (JMH). JMH is among the world’s leading management journals. Additionally this would fit with two of the York Management School’s research themes – Justice, Ethics and Equality, and Business Humanities, particularly the Management and Organizational History Research Cluster (MOHRC), and this would be an opportunity for candidate scholars to have their papers commented upon by experts in these highly relevant theoretical and empirical fields.
