About this event

How have Management and IHRM scholars shaped the conversation on the Covid 19 Pandemic?

About the Presentation

Academic contributions on the Covid 19 pandemic and its consequences continue apace. As with most disciplines, scholars working in the organisation sciences have turned their attention to this extraordinary phenomenon, and have offered an array of insights designed to assist our understanding and management of the altered circumstances and attendant complexity thrown up by it. Based on a preliminary analysis of a corpus of scholarship published in selected Management and HRM journals, in this presentation Professor Michael Morley will landscape the contours of this evolving body of work and its underlying intellectual structure. Through a performance analysis, he will identify key elements of the anatomy of the knowledge base built thus far, while in a textual analysis he will outline focal topics and shared qualities characterizing the contributions. Following this exposition and classification of the scholarship, he will turn to the identification of a series of research opportunities designed to either deepen recently established lines of inquiry, or open up new ones of relevance to addressing the ongoing work, workplace and work-life challenges that have arisen from the Covid 19 pandemic.
