Submitted by AFAM Mensah on Tue, 04/20/2021 - 8:42pm

We are delighted to invite applications for a Feminist Social Sciences and Humanities Writing and Publishing Workshop to be held at Manchester Metropolitan University on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th December 2021. 

This event is an intensive 2-day workshop for UK-based feminist early career researchers (ECRS) in the social sciences and humanities from the “Global South” to work with feminist journal editors to develop a working paper into a publication-worthy piece. The event will also provide the space for ECRs to engage with editors in critical conversations around the lack of “Global South” feminist voices in academic journals and how we can tackle these with care and solidarity.

Africa Academy of Management (AFAM) 2021 Online Webinar Series

Submitted by AFAM Mensah on Thu, 03/04/2021 - 9:21pm

The global support of the Black Lives Matter movement re-ignited discussions on the role of institutions, including Business Schools, in propagating racial, tribal and social injustices.  Historical legacies of injustice and inequality are often perpetuated through what is taught (including a Eurocentric curriculum) or not taught, the kind of research undertaken, and the nature of external partnerships forged by business schools and accreditation bodies in Africa. Moreover, the cultures of inequality and silencing of voices is often perpetuated through internal structures, systems and processes of institutions.  This reality calls for reimagining business schools for the future and their role in Africa’s development.  This webinar will discuss decolonization and indigenisation efforts within institutions in Africa, and how they might transform business schools in Africa to develop a more equal, prosperous and just society.

Since 2016, Sinergie and Sima work together to organize the annual conference, a scientific event based on the experience that Sinergie has matured over 30 years of activity and on Sima’s academic network. The Sinergie-Sima conference is therefore a well-established scientific meeting that brings together scholars from the field of management to present and discuss their research in a collaborative and friendly environment.
