SCOS Update September 2021

Dear All,

SCOS Newsletter September 2021

A couple of really interesting news items this month. Firstly, from Harriet Shortt and Michal Izak: 

Special Issue for Culture and Organization: ‘Flexible lives: spatial, temporal, and behavioural boundaries in a fluid world of work and home’ has a deadline extension! The deadline is now 31.01.2022, so those of you interested in submitting a paper will have a bit more time ( – we would love to hear from you! 

We will also be convening a stream at the upcoming Critical Management Studies conference devoted specifically to the topic of this call for papers – Flexible lives: spatial, temporal, and behavioural boundaries in a fluid world of work and home (stream 4): . It will be an open call, so you can still submit a paper to the Special Issue by January 2022 deadline even without participating in a conference, but we would like to treat this stream as a way to help develop papers towards the submission.  The conference will take place (technically speaking) in New Delhi, India, but for practical reasons it will be an online only event. Date: 16-18 December 2021. Deadline for submissions of 1000 word abstracts: 1.07.2021. If you would like to participate, please submit to or We will encourage developing all accepted abstracts into full papers by the end of November 2021, so that they can be shared internally within the stream (if the authors agree) and discussed during the conference.

And secondly, from Beatriz Acevedo: 

I am delighted to invite you to the Thinking Through Drawing (TTD) Symposium 2021, this time on the topic of Unlocking.  TTD is a group of international academics, practitioners, activists, artists and educators passionate about the power of drawing for education and meaningful transformations.  

This year the TTD symposium will happen during the week of 18th to 23rd of October/2021. Monday to Friday we will have a combination of synchronous and asynchronous events, ranging from Yoga drawing, dream drawing (my own gig), and live workshops across the planet. The idea is that you can do them at your own time and for Saturday (23/10/2021) we will have live events and show and tell conversations about the week.    

Please Book your Place here.   If you need a bursary or discount please let us know,  

You can have a sneak peek to the events and workshops in our webpage (check it regularly as we are still uploading promo videos of the different events).–publications.html 

All sound amazing!
