First Normandy Conversations on Mary P. Follett - October 25-26, 2012

In October 2011, a small group of us gathered in Boston, Massachusetts for the Boston Conversations on Mary Parker Follett. Following on from this inspiring event, the Normandy Conversations on Mary P. Follett will be held October 25-26 at the University of Rouen, Normandy, France.

A Call for Papers - Normandy_conversations_October2012.pdf - is now open. Presentations that will be selected can cover a wide variety of themes. Authors are invited to submit a one-page abstract of their proposal or presentation before the 12th of April 2012. The deadline for Conversations registration is the 15th of September 2012. We hope that many of you who are inspired and informed by Follett will be able to attend.
