Call for papers


The conference organisers welcome conceptual and empirical contributions that address the significance of these issues for the wider domain of leadership studies, identifying their main contours, and indicating emerging challenges. The aim of the conference is to encourage a re-thinking of leadership studies and to interrogate what this might mean for contemporary theory and practice. We are pleased to announce that at least one special issue, titled “Rethinking Leadership Research” will be published in the journal Leadership. In line with the journal’s policy of inclusivity, papers exploring alternative new directions are also welcomed.

We invite proposals related to the theme, Rethinking Leadership Research. Proposals are welcome in the form of papers, workshops, round-tables or PhD posters, drawn from a wide range of disciplinary and methodological perspectives. Proposals of no more than 1000 words should be submitted by 30th September 2016. Each abstract submission will be subject to a blind peer-review process. As such, the uploaded document should include only the Title and Abstract of the submission. A decision on all abstracts received will be conveyed to contributors by 31st October 2016.

Please upload your submission using our abstract submission system.

Anyone wishing to discuss a possible submission or additional queries should contact Professor Richard Harrison.
