It’s a great pleasure to invite you to our ICEBS Zoom Lecture and Paper Development Workshop “How to Use Storytelling in your Academic Writing” by and with Professor Timothy Pollock (The Haslam Chair in Business and Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Management and Entrepreneurship Department of the University of Tennessee - Knoxville Haslam College of Business)
on Thursday, October 21, 2021, 3pm to 7.30pm (Passau time/CET).
Apart from his lecture, Professor Pollock (see www.timothypollock.comhttps://scholar.google.de/citations?user=Gx5_oVoAAAAJ&hl=de&oi=aohttps://faculty.utk.edu/Timothy.Pollock/about) will provide feedback to up to four specific papers.
Professor Pollock is leading figure in the field of management and corporate reputation research. His current research focuses on corporate governance and the social construction of entrepreneurial market environments, particularly the initial public offerings (IPO) market. He considers how social and political factors such as reputation, celebrity, status, social capital, impression management activities, media accounts, and the power of different actors influence IPO firm performance, survival, alliance formation activities, and executive recruitment and compensation. He is also interested in how entrepreneurs’ experience and organizational resource endowments influence their strategic decision making.
His research has won the 1997 INFORMS/Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition, the 2000 Lou Pondy Award from the Organization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management, the 2009 IDEA Thought Leader Award from the Entrepreneurship Division of the Academy of Management for the best recent entrepreneurship research and the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation Best Published Paper Award for 2010. It has also been selected as a finalist for the 2010 Academy of Management Journal Best Paper Award. He has published articles in Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, Strategic Organization, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Business Venturing, Human Communication Research, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, Organizational Dynamics, Academy of Management Executive, British Journal of Management and Corporate Reputation Review.
He was an Associate Editor for the Academy of Management Journal from 2010-2013, and is a member, or has been a member, of the editorial boards of the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Business Venturing, Organization Science and Strategic Organization. He received outstanding reviewer awards for my reviewing activities from the Academy of Management Journal in 2004 and 2010 and from the Journal of Business Venturing in 2010. He also co-edited, along with Michael Barnett at Rutgers University, The Oxford Handbook of Corporate Reputation, published by Oxford University Press. He served a four-year term on the Executive Committee of the Organization Science division of INFORMS from 2006-2010, and served as Representative-at-Large on the Executive Committee of the Organization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management from 2006-2009. He is also an International Research Fellow of the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation.
Please, send a note by October 5th to email@example.com to let us know if you are interested in participating in the session and whether you want your idea/paper outline to be discussed. Those of you who want to work on a paper and get selected will be notified on October 6. You can also attach a ppt file or any other kind of material you want Prof. Pollock to study in preparation for your feedback.
The idea is to organize the PDW as a “masterclass” where everyone participates in the discussion of maximum four ideas/papers. As such, the discussion of your paper will be on a first come first serve basis. However, note that listening in to the PDW will certainly be worthwhile, as Professor Pollock will attempt to address issues that will almost certainly be of value to all. You are also invited to contribute feedback and ask questions.
