SCOS Update October 2016

Dear SCOSSers,

Summer is leaving us and the new academic year has well and truly started for most. When I think about our little exercise in Uppsala where we discussed the ‘parts’ of SCOS I wonder if this time of the year is the ‘lungs’, when we breathe fresh air into our thinking. Or perhaps we are only blowing hot air out at our students! One has to wonder where our bluster might be taking us, and what role SCOS might have in advocating serious fun as a ‘wind of change’ in knowledge production…reflections on the Facebook group welcome.

SCOS Update September 2016

Dear Scossers,

It was so fabulous to see so many new and traditional faces at the SCOS conference in Uppsala. I hope all who attended had a great time and found the animal theme as inspiring as I did. Following the theme, there is now a CfP for Culture and Organization which many of you may wish to consider as an outlet for your research. I hope for many of us, this SCOS was unforgettable, not only thanks to hellan gore, but also Bob Monkhouse!
For all the new members, please send any items for circulation on the mailing list to me for inclusion in our digest, and you can also find many SCOSsers on social media such as Facebook to continue the fabulous ideas and inspirations from previous and future conference themes. It’s also a great place to swap articles, poetry, art and a variety of other materials!

Check out these five fantastic items for you today:

Item 1: Next SCOS conference in Rome. Theme: Carne
Item 2: Workshop on Waste at Lund University
Item 3: Ethnography Workshop in Manchester, UK
Item 4: Culture & Organisation CfP Special Issue on the Animal, submit by March 2017!
Item 5: Plan ahead – SCOS is going to join ACSCOS in Japan in August 2018!
