    Session #: 13978 | Sponsors: RM, MOC, OB, OMT, CAR

    Organizers: Bori Csillag, U. of Minnesota and Nathan Tong, U. of Hartford


    Are you using qualitative methods in your dissertation? If so, would you like…

    • To maximize the publication potential of your dissertation?
    • To ensure you are properly and appropriately using qualitative methods in your research?
    • Guidance on analyzing and/or writing up your qualitative data?
    • Insight into approaching the job market with a qualitative or mixed-methods dissertation?


    "Navigating Qualitative Dissertations: Advice from the Experts" is a Professional Development Workshop aimed at providing doctoral candidates performing dissertations that incorporate qualitative methods (i.e., purely qualitative or mixed-method dissertations) with focused and personalized feedback from experienced qualitative researchers. This session will include intimate discussions tailored to participants' dissertations, and also affords an opportunity for doctoral students to build their network with established qualitative scholars.


    This workshop will be in its seventh year at AOM's annual conference and features a diverse mix of scholars with experience in a variety of qualitative methods and expertise in an array of topics.


    In light of this year's re-imagined AOM Annual Meeting, feedback sessions will take place asynchronously, at the mutual convenience of paired faculty and student participants, anytime between early August and the beginning of fall teaching terms (as applicable).


    This year, we are proud to have the following distinguished scholars facilitating feedback and discussions (in alphabetical order):


    Matt Beane, Tammy Beck, Shelley Brickson, Lindsey Cameron, Brianna Caza, Kevin Corley, Kim Elsbach, Lyndon Garrett, Spencer Harrison, Jean Helms Mills, Elaine Hollensbe, Shalini Khazanchi, Tine Koehler, Glen Kreiner, Kisha Lashley, Sally Maitlis, Melissa Mazmanian, Albert Mills, Chris Myers, Carrie Oelberger, Katie Pine, Hatim Rahman, Davide Ravasi, Trish Reay, Kristie Rogers, Bess Rouse, Beth Schinoff, Angelique Slade Shantz, Madeline Toubiana, Melissa Valentine, and Heather Vough.
