38th Annual Macromarketing Conference June 5– June 7, 2013

Paper track on servants, servitude and the philosophy of service
The study of 'service' in marketing has heretofore concentrated on the managerial use of service for profit-maximizing purposes. In this track, we invite philosophical, critical, sociological, ecological, and economic papers on the relation between service and market. We particularly welcome papers that deal with issues in the following areas:

What can philosophy tell us about service? (Marx, Hegel, Agamben, Aquinas)

(Global) slavery in different industry sectors (sex, house-keeping, construction, fashion)

Service-dominant logic, services marketing, Nordic marketing, and critiques thereof

Kameelah Martin; Folashade Alao

We seek innovative proposals for a special session on the trope of water in black literary consciousness at the 2014 MLA Convention in Chicago. We are particularly interested in research that engages water through the lens of migration, memory and access in the literature and cultures of the African diaspora. This includes, but is not limited to such topics as transatlantic crossings, water and black spirituality, and eco-criticism in addition to the excess of or limited access to water.

Kindly submit an abstract of 350 words and CV to BOTH organizers: Kameelah Martin (kmsamuel@uh.edu) and Folashade Alao (Alaof@mailbox.sc.edu) by March 15, 2013.
