The paper, co-authored with Ellen Nathues (Chair for Entrepreneurship, Organization, and Culture at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg) and François Cooren (Chair of the Department of Communication at the Université de Montréal), received the most votes out of the 25 papers presented within the sub-theme. The paper was voted for by sub-theme attendees who have renowned expertise in the areas of communication and performativity within management and organization studies, and so marks a prestigious award.

Hollis’ paper will now be put forward alongside the other sub-theme award winners for the ‘best paper’ of the 2022 EGOS conference, with the EGOS board announcing their decision next summer.
