This conference builds on the traditions of recent CMS conferences by aiming to engage scholarly thinking and analysis as well as provocations leading to proposed action. CMS explores alternatives to the ubiquity of neoliberal market managerialism as a dominant frame in business education and as a pre-supposed framing of other social sciences. Such alternatives could be understood in practical terms of specific organisational forms and practices, or theoretical developments including in feminism, anarchism, communism, localism, fraternalism, green thinking and the implications of advances in neuro-science, exaptative innovation, interoperability and big data-driven theoretical opportunism among other re-framings. Some of these  may inspire the generation of new forms of resistance to neoliberalism or indeed any other hegemonic discourse that presumes there can be ‘one best way’ of doing things or indeed one preferred mode of pedagogy,.

CMS has been going for some time but it may be appropriate to consider whether it now needs some revolutionary breakthroughs in approach, methodology or application or whether CMS is evolving dynamically to achieve the best hopes of its founders. In any case we welcome the opportunity to mark the centenary of 1917, the “year of crisis” as Michael Howard termed it. This was a year that saw two Russian revolutions, one in China, the USA entered the war in Europe, Mexico consolidated its revolution, the Indian National Congress demanded self-government and the British government acknowledged that its policy was for gradual development of self-governing institutions and the progressive realization of responsible government.” In 1917 there were two enormous explosion, one in Silvertown destroyed 70,000 homes in London’s East End, the other destroyed the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia. In the revolution of ideas, TS Eliot’s Prufrock came out to expand the boundaries of poetry, Einstein published his paper on cosmology that inaugurated the Space Age, Edward Tylor the founder of ethnography died and the Converse Rubber Shoe was born. What a year! And in 2017, Edge Hill University is bringing CMS to Liverpool with a revolutionary or consolidation opportunity! The usual terms and conditions apply but all bets are on!

The organisers will be working closely with the CMS leadership to ensure a positive atmosphere and an inclusive environment at the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you in Liverpool.
