Addressing the Theme and Advancing Corporate/Organisational Marketing Scholarship
The organisers welcome papers that address the general theme of the symposium focussing on future challenges and opportunities for corporate/organisational marketing (and related fields). We particularly encourage contributions that draw on theories and frameworks beyond the traditional corporate marketing literatures or that adopt a cross-disciplinary approach.
Further, the organisers welcome papers in the areas of Corporate Identity, Corporate Culture, Corporate Branding, Corporate Reputation, Corporate Communication and Corporate Marketing as well as related fields, which are broadly concerned with organisations as socio-economic and socio-cultural entities embedded within multiple overlapping institutional and societal domains. We also invite papers adopting various stakeholder perspectives on the domain.
Disciplinary, Paradigmatic and Methodological Pluralism
We welcome papers that consider these areas from diverse theoretical, practical, disciplinary, philosophical, regional and cultural perspectives and organisational modes. We are interested in receiving both conceptual and empirical papers aligned to the symposium's theme. We do not give preference to any particular conception, paradigm, methodology and management approaches. Quantitative as well as qualitative papers; instrumental, reflective and critical contributions are all welcome.
