Break-out Session and Plenary Panel at European Forum Alpbach 2018

This year I will – for the very first time – take part in the European Forum Alpbach, specifically in its “Technology Symposium”. I will speak in two sessions:

  • In the Break-out Session “Consequences of digital monocultures on societies” I will give a talk on “Digital Media between Neutrality and Polarization”. The session takes place on Friday, August 24, 1.00-6.00 p.m. at the Hauptschule Alpbach.
  • On Saturday, August 25, 10:50-11:50 a.m. I will discuss, amongst others, with the Director General of the Austrian public broadcaster Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF) Alexander Wrabetz in a Plenary Panel Session on “The resilience of democracy and democratic media“. [Update, 21.09.2018] The video of the debate is is now available online. [/Update]

Both sessions will be in German. In case anyone reading this blog is in Alpbach these days, I would be happy to meet & chat.

Looking back on the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2018 in Chicago

As usual, healthy food is one of the best things about any visit to the US, here together with Blagoy Blagoev (University of Lüneburg), Maximilian Heimstädt (University of Witten/Herdecke) and my sister and co-author Laura (Radboud University, Nijmegen, NL)

Every other year (see post on the last visit in 2016) I enjoy taking part in the Academy of Management Annual Meeting, the world’s largest conference for management and organization studies scholars. This year the conference took place in Chicago. The following list is about my main activities there:

Interestingly and as a potential long-term save-the-date, the Academy of Management announced that for the first time in its history, the conference will take place in Europe – more specifically, in Copenhagen – in 2025. I am really looking forward to this event, albeit being curious how Copenhagen will manage to cope with hosting so many management and organization scholars at once. Probably should already think about booking a hotel room.. 😉
