Long abstract:

This panel invites papers that treat dilemmas of Knowledge Business, including modes of bridging diverse ways of thinking and acting in such contexts, ways of accommodating economic profitability with environmental and social sustainability and how these relate to local understandings of Business, as well as various other issues related to the conduct and conceptualization (knowledge) and conduct (value) of enterprises in our globalizing world.

We are also interested in papers that deal with the problematics of conducting ethnography (as Anthropology's signature method) in such business/enterprise contexts.
