Explorations in Globalization and Glocalization: Marketing History Through the Ages

18th Biennial Conference on Historical Analysis and Research in Marketing (CHARM)

 

and

3rd Doctoral Workshop on Historical Methods in Marketing Scholarship

June 1-4, 2017 (Doctoral Workshop May 31 - June 1)

Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, England, U.K.

We invite business, marketing, social science, and humanities scholars from all backgrounds to join us in Liverpool (European Capital of Culture 2008) for a friendly, collegial, and interdisciplinary research conference. We call on scholars from around the world to cast a critical look on the history of marketing and how these outputs might be taken to reflect on past epochs to enhance our understanding. Both individual papers and entire panels on all aspects of marketing history, historic marketing, and the history of marketing thought in all geographic areas and all time frames are welcome. In accord with the Conference theme, we welcome papers that both examine the history of marketing as a discipline and also critically draw on marketing as a source in reconstructing the past. Topics may include but are not exclusively restricted to the following:
  • Marketing pioneers, the development and evolution of the marketing discipline;
  • Varieties of marketing cultures and histories;
  • Writing the past: constructing histories in/for marketing;
  • The role of relationships and networks in marketing;
  • Branding and brand development;
  • Market research;
  • Marketing history "from below" - how consumers and citizens respond to and interact with firms and brands;
  • Advertising;
  • Distribution and packaging;
  • Sector case studies, for example beauty and fashion marketing, transportation, leisure, etc.;
  • Marketing in the projection of national and regional identities.

We also encourage submissions that discuss methodological, pedagogical and historiographical questions in marketing.

Please address any proposals for special sessions or panels directly to the Program Chair for more information.

Doctoral students with a particular interest in research methods in marketing history and marketing theory are invited to attend a full-day workshop that immediately precedes the conference. To be considered for this workshop, please submit to Chuck A. Ingene and Maria Kalamas Hedden by January 15, 2017, a statement of interest, a CV, a preliminary or final dissertation prospectus of no more than 10 pages, and a letter of support from your dissertation supervisor (or prospective supervisor). Limited financial support will be available to the strongest proposals. Applicants will be notified by February 28, 2017, whether they will be included in the program. There will also be a special track for the presentation of doctoral projects at the conference itself.

All paper submissions will be double-blind reviewed and a proceedings volume will be published. Full papers (between 8,000 and 12,000 words, inclusive of references and all other items) or extended abstracts may be submitted. Authors may choose to publish either full papers or extended abstracts in the proceedings. To provide reviewers with sufficient information, extended abstracts should be: 1,200-1,500 words in length and include the research purpose, source material or data, and sample references. Please note: submitting a full paper to the proceedings volume does not preclude a submission of your paper to a journal. The copyright of a paper published in the CHARM proceedings remains with its authors, and over the years many CHARM conference papers have made their way into marketing, historical, sociological and other journals.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: The revised submission deadline is Sunday, January 15, 2017.

Please use the "Properties" function in Word to remove author information from the document file.
