Interdisciplinary Research on Philanthropy: Connecting the Dots
European Research Network On Philanthropy
7th International Conference, 9-10 July 2015
ESSEC Business School
Philanthropy research in Europe is carried out by scholars from a wide variety of disciplines. Also, philanthropy researchers are dispersed among countries, places, universities, faculties and research centers. Hosted by ESSEC Business School in Paris, the conference will gather scholars from various disciplines sharing a motivation to generate new knowledge about philanthropy by connecting the dots between. Participants are especially encouraged to send in proposals cutting through disciplinary and country related issues. Not only will the conference serve as a platform to discuss current research developments and to foster new insights about philanthropy, it also emphasizes the need for rigor and relevance in philanthropy research.
The conference aims to foster cooperation and exchange of ideas between academics from various disciplinary backgrounds and practitioners from the philanthropic sector.
The organizers welcome papers addressing national contexts as well as cross-national comparisons. Papers can be either empirical – using quantitative, qualitative, or mixed method approaches – or theoretical. Topics at the conference include (but are not limited to):
