I’ll be presenting the paper “Introducing transcience and incompleteness in energy efficiency research” at the joint SCOS/ACSCOS conference this year in Tokyo. From the conference page:
“SCOS is a global network of academics and practitioners, who hail from a hugely diverse range of disciplines and professional backgrounds. We were formed in 1981, originally as an autonomous working group of the European Group for Organizational Studies, but have been an independent academic venture for over 30 yearly conferences. Our central interest is in the interlinked issues of organizational symbolism, culture and change, articulated in the broadest possible sense and informed by our commitment to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary understandings of organization and management. Thus our work draws, inter alia, from organization studies, social anthropology, cultural studies, media studies, philosophy, history, social psychology and politics. The theme of our conference this year is ‘Wabi-sabi (侘寂): Imperfection, incompleteness and impermanence in Organisational Life.‘”
This paper is part of my post-PhD effort to move from engineering into management and organization studies. Picture from a weekend in Hakone during last year’s stay in Tokyo.
