DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM:  29 November - 1 December

SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATING THE WINDS OF CHANGE

Proudly Sponsored by Massey University Business School

 

The Doctoral Colloquium will take place from 29 November - 1 December. It will be followed by the main conference on 2 - 4 December 2019.

The ANZMAC Doctoral Colloquium is for students at all stages of their doctoral research. Consistent with the overall theme of ANZMAC 2019 (Winds of Change), the colloquium aims to provide doctoral students with an understanding of the contemporary challenges in marketing and an opportunity to question existing paradigms.

The colloquium will connect students with peers, leading marketing academics and mentors. The programme will encourage students to engage in lively discourse, helping them improve their skills and further their research in order to navigate the ‘winds of change’ in increasingly unsettling times.

To apply for the DC, students need to provide a 750-1000 word (excluding references) extended abstract about their chosen topic. Early stage students should focus on the research question they would like to address, the significance of the problem, and their proposed methodology. Later stage students should look to present (preliminary) findings and contribution to theory and practice. Early stage students are typically those who are yet to defend their research proposal or complete a related milestone. DC attendees may also choose to present their research at the main ANZMAC conference but there is an expectation that they will present a different facet of their research at the Doctoral Colloquium (different types of audience).

Students will be informed of their acceptance into the DC on the basis of the submitted extended abstract. Accepted students are then required to submit a more in-depth document by November 1st. The purpose of this document is to provide mentors with a reasonable overview of your work, and for you to highlight two or three aspects of your research in particular on which you would like feedback and discussion. The word limit is 3000-6000 words (excluding references). It may be less depending on the nature of the research and the aspects on which you would like to focus. The assigned mentors will provide feedback on the work at the DC presentation. All submissions should be sent directly to: [email protected].
