Who is this PDW for?
If you are:
then this is the PDW for you!
This PDW brings together a distinguished panel of scholars to stimulate an interactive and developmental exchange on conducting inductive research using historical case studies. Our core focus will be on the theory-building / theoretical contribution part of the research process – how do we understand the past to inform the present? How do we move from the case being studied to higher-level conceptualizations, while maintaining a balance between generalization and contextualization?
Importantly, our aim will be to focus on these questions from a practical standpoint, taking away useful advice that scholars can adopt in their research practices.
How to Apply
Part 1 is open to all attendees and does not require any application in advance.
For Part 2, in order to ensure quality interactions with panelists, we are limiting the number of "pitches" to 15 (i.e. 5 per panelist). If you are interested in receiving feedback on a project that you are currently working on, please submit your interest to the organizer at email@example.com, by 11:59 pm Eastern Time (New York time) on June 30, 2021.
Specifically, please submit an abstract or overview of your project, including two questions that you would like to ask the panelists to receive feedback about that project. Please keep this document limited to 1 page, single-spaced, and submit it in PDF format.
In addition, in your email, please rank order your preference for which panelist roundtable you would like to be a part of (with the number "1" referring to your first choice panelist and "3" referring to your third choice panelist).
Note: In addition to the 1-page abstract, you may, if you wish, submit a theoretical model or diagram that you are working on in case your project is at a more advanced stage and you would like comments on the model you are building.
If you have any questions about the PDW or the application process, please feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
