ORGANIZATION ARTICLE WINS IMAGINATION LAB FOUNDATION AWARD FOR INNOVATIVE SCHOLARSHIP
London, UK (08 June, 2012) – Mark Stein, Chair in Leadership and Management at Leicester University’s School of Management was yesterday awarded the Imagination Lab Foundation Award for Innovative Scholarship for a paper published in the journal Organization, published by SAGE.
The award was presented at the 2012 EURAM conference in Rotterdam. Established in 2006 as a long-term collaboration between Swiss-based Imagination Lab Foundation and EURAM, it recognises innovative scholarly activity. Stein’s paper, “A culture of mania: a psychoanalytic view of the incubation of the 2008 credit crisis”, was lauded by the judges for its innovative approach to theorising in the field of organization studies.
The judges commented:
This insightful and topical paper explores, through a psychoanalytic framework, the broad cultural changes which laid down the conditions for the credit crisis of 2008 and suggests that a manic response was created out of a series of major ruptures in capitalism.
The article will be free to download for a limited period from:
