To be decided

Human Relations is an internationally renowned journal, known not only for its long and distinguished heritage in the scholarly analysis of social relations at work, but also for its continuing contributions to contemporary interdisciplinary scholarship within this broad field. In organizing the Human Relations 75th Anniversary Conference, to be held in London, UK, between 19th and 21st April 2023, we are seeking to celebrate the journal’s heritage, as well as looking towards its future.

The main purpose of the event is to bring together a diverse group of scholars who share an interest in social relations at work, broadly defined. As most of the conference will consist of paper presentations in streams convened by Associate Editors of Human Relations, we welcome a wide range of submissions that fall within the aims and scope of the journal.

The conference will start with an opening ceremony in the early evening of Wednesday, 19th April. The keynote address and paper streams will be held at  Bayes Business School in central London on 20th and 21st April, with the keynote delivered jointly by Gianpiero and Jennifer Petriglieri. 

Streams will include: 

  • Critique and contestation at Work
  • Identities & Employee Relations
  • Organizing and social relationships in non-traditional contexts
  • Proactivity and job design in employment relations
  • Work/ Non-Work Relationships & CSR
