Best Paper on International Business Award
Nick Montgomery (PhD student in Political Science) and Dr. Ana Maria Peredo presented their paper co-authored with Eleanor Carlson (Anthropology and former CCCBE graduate student fellow), "The BOP Discourse as Capitalist Hegemony" at the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, August 2012. The paper was chosen as the Best Paper on International Business and was nominated for the Carolyn Dexter Award.
This paper draws on theories from postcolonialism, feminism, and post-structuralism, the paper argues that the increasingly popular "Bottom of the Pyramid" paradigm obscures non-capitalist alternatives and resistance to capitalism. Sincere thanks to Emmalee Brunt for her excellent work on the literature review for this award winning paper.
Congratulations on this award!
