edi_logo_main_smallIm Rahmen der 8th Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) International Conference von 6-8 Juli 2015 an der Tel Aviv University in Tel Aviv (Israel) bitten Laura Dobusch und Katharina Kreissl um Einreichungen für einen Stream zum Thema „Organizing Emancipation through, despite or against (Diversity) Management?“. Aus dem Call for Papers (PDF):

[W]e think that it is particularly interesting to take a closer look at the relationship between the workforce diversity in organisations and the relevance of/opportunity for emancipatory practices. Over the last decades the topics of equal and inclusive participation of historically disadvantaged groups at the workplace have been increasingly framed as a legitimate management responsibility and are thus explicitly addressed by various forms of diversity and equal opportunity policies on a practical level. In this context the crucial questions arise: If emancipation is necessarily opposed to domination, can it be fostered or stimulated by a top down approach? Can (diversity) management create conditions enabling an emancipatory environment or is that a contradiction in itself?

Deadline für die Einreichung in Form von Long Abstracts (5 Seiten mindestens) und Full Papers ist der 1. März 2015. Abstracts und Paper können hier eingereicht werden:
