AoM PDW "Rhythms of Academic Life – Insights and Advice for Academic Scholars at all Career Stages" (Aligned with 2018AOM Conference Theme of Improving Lives)"
Friday 10th August, 3-6pm, Chicago
Some 20 years ago, Frost and Taylor published the landmark book "Rhythms of Academic Life" (Frost and Taylor, 1996), which included over 50 chapters of personal accounts from leading management scholars on the changing world of academia. Although some of the fundamentals of academia remains unchanged, much of the landscapes in which we must survive and compete has changed drastically. A forthcoming 2019 Special Issue in the Academy of Management Learning and Education (AMLE) is revisiting the issues from the original volume for contemporary academics. This multi-sponsored PDW is aimed at embracing these efforts to provide guidance to both new and more established scholars on the multiple aspects of their lives as academics in 2018 and onward.
The PDW consists of two parts.
Part One includes an open panel discussion from leading scholars on the broad topic of Career Rhythms and the similarities and differences of academic life since the 1996 volume. The panel will include some of the original contributors of the 1996 volume of "Rhythms of Academic Life"; Guest Editors of the forthcoming AMLE Special Issue; potential contributors to the Special Issue; along with established scholars from the SAP field. In essence, the panel will address how rhythms of academic life have changed, emerging trends for the future, and provide advice to scholars at different stages of their career, i.e., early career scholars (PhDs and post-docs), mid-career scholars and late-career scholars.
Part Two is designed to go into further detail in a more intimate and engaging manner so that every participant will have the opportunity to discuss first-hand, with senior scholars in regards to key issues and challenges, success stories and lessons learned in being an academic in today's highly competitive academic landscapes. Participants and facilitators will have the opportunity to interact in three roundtables rotations of 30mins each. Please come prepared for some fun, highly dynamic and interactive discussions.
Part One will be open for everybody to join. Please pre-register for Part Two in the AoM PDW registration system. This PDW is also part of the SAP Early-Career Program.
