2010 Conference Food N’ Thought Sessions

Call for Proposals
2010 AHRD Conference at Knoxville, TN.

Food N’ Thought Sessions

Present at a Food N’ Thought Session!

Have you missed the deadline to submit a paper to present at the 2010 AHRD conference? Do you have some emerging ideas that you would like to discuss with the conference participants? Would you like to share a perspective on a scholarly topic? Consider submitting a proposal to the Food N’ Thought sessions at the 2010 AHRD conference!

Food N’ Thought (FNT) sessions are 1-hour informal brown bag sessions where participants dialogue about a scholarly topic of interest.  In the past, FNT topics have included globalization, leadership, organizational learning, spirituality, book reviews, and more.

The purpose of the FNT session is two-fold.  One purpose is to encourage scholarly dialogue on topics important to the field of HRD.  The second purpose is to build a sense of community by helping to ensure that no participant at the conference should have to eat alone.  For that reason, we always look for an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere at our FNT sessions.

This year, we are calling for proposals for three types of FNT sessions:

  • Research & Practice:  Scholars from research and practice team up to offer their perspectives on a scholarly topic
  • Research Horizons: Any innovative dialogue on a topic of current or futureresearch interest in AHRD
  • Book Club: A review and dialogue on a recent book of interest to members of AHRD

Submission guidelines:

  • 500 word (maximum) proposal and a 150-200 word abstract in one WORD file

  • Type of FNT session (Research & Practice, Research Horizons, or Book Club)

  • Preferred time (Breakfast or Lunch) and day (Friday or Saturday)

  • Complete contact information

  • Submit electronically to Christina Kamer at

  • Deadline for proposal submission is January 4, 2010

I look forward to receiving your proposals!
