Session 289

Seeing the Future in the Recent Past: Predicting Seminal Work

Track L

Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015


Time: 09:45 – 11:00

Interest Group Panel

Room: Governor's Square 17

Session Chair:

  • David Kryscynski, Brigham Young University


Each panel member will look back at the last 3-5 years of research in the strategic human capital domain and identify one paper that fits the following criterion: “In the year 2025, this paper will be considered a seminal work by those deeply engaged in strategic human capital research.” The panel member will select a paper of his/her choosing and explain why s/he predicts that this particular paper will become a seminal piece. There will be four panel members: (1) a PhD student, (2) a junior faculty member, (3) a mid-career scholar and (4) a senior scholar.

There are several purposes for organizing this type of session. First, we each view the research conversation through idiosyncratic lenses. This will be an opportunity for us to see how our respected colleagues interpret the work of others in the field. Their paper choices and how they choose to talk about those papers will likely reveal interesting insights about the state of the strategic human capital conversation. Second, this panel gives us an opportunity to invite scholars outside of the “usual suspects” to join us and teach us from their perspectives. Third, the panel will likely broaden the awareness of interest group members of key conversations outside of their current paradigms.
