The fourth EURAM
conference will be convened at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
St. Andrews is an enchanting mediaeval city famed for its beautiful coastal
surroundings, its world class University and as the 'Home of Golf'. The
venue will be the Old Course Hotel,
which overlooks the historic golf links.
Building on the
success of EURAM's previous conferences, and within the EURAM tradition
of innovation, the 2004 meeting aims to provide a challenging intellectual
forum for the further development of European management studies.
The theme will
be 'Governance in Managerial Life'. This seeks to reflect the contemporary
concern of governance in, and of, our organisations, especially with the
history of Enron, Worldcom and Vivendi. Further, it seeks to investigate
the 'governmentality' of, and by, managers in our organisations. How do
managers conduct themselves when managing? How do they conduct themselves
when being managed? Clearly, the material will be inter-disciplinary,
drawing on the contribution of EURAM's management scholars in particular
and supported by a special stream of leading Professors from the University
of St. Andrews Senatus Academicus (the highest academic college in the
University). These will be drawn from philosophers, historians, classicists,
theologians and anthropologists and will help to stimulate the management
debate from a deep disciplinary perspective.
the St. Andrews conference will introduce a debate on 'After Modernism?
- Future Directions in Strategic Management' that will feature presentations
from leading international thinkers in the field. It is hoped that a special
issue of the new EURAM Journal reflecting these views will be published
for distribution at the conference.
