I am really pleased that BAM now has, in addition to the long-standing Business and Management History track, a new track for African Studies that is open to wide variety of approaches, including historical research.
We would like to bring to your attention a new track on African Studies for the BAM 2020 conference in Manchester. The African Studies track is committed to examining submissions that foster dialogue on contemporary African research which directly impacts BAM members and the wellbeing of the broader academic research community. We are especially keen to receive full and development papers (both conceptual and empirical based) as well as workshop styled interventions on the following topical areas:
- African entrepreneurial process & other spatial/temporal issues on African entrepreneurship.
- African culture, alternative institutions and indigenous networks.
- Policy & practice issues on African development and SMEs.
- African development finance, including formal & informal sources of finance, financial bootstrapping, small business, venture capital, & bank credits.
- African leadership and leadership development.
- African research on female & gender entrepreneurship.
- African research methodologies & methods
We have an open list for potential submissions but are interested in papers which explore an African theme. The BAM2020 submission site can be located via the following link: https://www.conftool.pro/bam2020. We look forward to your submissions.
