2014's Qualitative Research in Management Conference will be held from Tuesday, April 15 to Thursday, April 17 in the Student Union Building.

The aim of Qualitative Research in Management Conference 2014 (QRM2014) is to explore the significance of subjectivity and difference in researching organizational life.

This year's keynote speakers are Emily Martin, Professor of Anthropology, New York University, and Dennis K Mumby, Professor of Organizational Communication, University of North Carolina.

Emily Martin’s work on the social and cultural dimensions of science has been groundbreaking in investigating the sociocultural construction of person- or self-hood, body and mind. Her ethnographies blend dogged ethnographic empiricism and informing perspectives of linguistic philosophy and political economy to generate cultural critique.

Dennis Mumby combines critical and discursive perspectives to examine the ‘complexities and contradictions that characterize difference as a fundamental and defining feature of organizational life’, and explore the nature of gendered identities in organizations. He challenges conventional readings by foregrounding relations of power, control and resistance.

For questions on the conference, please call Aline Gonzales at 277.2525.
