Building on our previous PDWs, this PDW aims to help researchers to develop their research projects about stigma and identify opportunities for research. Particularly, we hope to contribute to a better understanding of stigma’s role in influencing identities, organizations, professions, and fields. Overall, this PDW consists of three components: (1) an introduction that defines the topic and provides an overview of recent work. (2) Thematic roundtables, each facilitated by 2-3 well-known scholars, which will also focus upon “challenges” that researchers are experiencing in positioning, conceptualizing, and publishing their work. Roundtables will last 60 minutes and have a maximum of 6 participants per table. Finally, there will be (3) a panel in which four prominent experts, Cynthia Devers, Bryant Hudson, Glen Kreiner, and Paul Tracey, will present their reflections on how their theoretical lenses shape their topics, methods, and findings on stigmatized actors. The organizers will then facilitate a discussion on how our lenses and empirical choices as researchers shape, or should shape, our research, before opening the discussion to the group.
You need to pre-register for this PDW. Please contact the workshop organizers at to obtain the approval code. To pre-register you need to submit a 1-2 page document with an abstract of a project and a challenge statement that outlines the issue that you would like to discuss at your roundtable. The deadline to register online is August 2, 2019.
