20th Anniversary Symposium:
The State of Leadership Studies
Feb. 1-2, 2013
Location: Conference will begin in Brown-Alley Room, Weinstein Hall
The Jepson School opened its doors 20 years ago as the nation's first school of leadership studies. In honor of the 20th anniversary, the School is hosting a symposium that will give leading scholars an opportunity to reflect on the work that has been done in the field since the School's inception in 1992 and to imagine the future.
Invited scholars are encouraged to give a brief presentation on the content and development of their work and to consider questions such as: How far has the field of leadership studies come in the past 20 years? Where is the field headed? What are some of the challenges?
Presentations will be organized in panels that are arranged under general categories such as leadership ethics; groups; followership; political leadership; literature, history and religion; and justice and social identity. The conference is not open to the public.
The winner of the 2012 Fredric M. Jablin Doctoral Dissertation Award, Jack Barentsen, will also present his research. Dr. Barentsen teaches at the Institute for Leadership and Ethics, Evangelische Theological Faculteit in Leuven, Belgium. The award recognizes outstanding new scholarship in the field and is awarded annually.
