CFP: Taylor’s World Conference | S.C. Williams Library

From the call:

On September 24th and 25th, 2015, Stevens Institute of Technology will be hosting a conference on the life and legacy of Frederick Winslow Taylor, a graduate of Stevens who is widely recognized as the father of scientific management. The event marks the centennial of Taylor’s death in 1915, and will explore both Taylor’s place in history and his legacy in the 21st century. We welcome proposals for either individual papers or full panels.

Potential topics include but are in no way limited to:

  • Taylor’s influence on contemporary management practice
  • The movement of Taylor’s ideas around the globe
  • Vestiges of Taylorism in digital media and labor, including Digital Turking and other forms of crowd sourcing
  • The place of organized labor, race, gender, and sexuality in Taylor’s thought and work
  • Taylor’s place in intellectual and cultural history
  • Taylor’s influence on sports technologies, especially golf and tennis
  • The effect of Taylorism on business strategy and technological change
