    Dear SIM colleagues,

    We invite our fellow scholars interested in the imagination to join us for a creative exploration of what it means to be human in the context of organizations.

    This Special Issue of the Journal of Management, Spirituality and Religion (anticipated publication date early 2022) addresses the liminal "in-between" quality of the imagination as a precious, yet under-researched and under-appreciated resource for the development of soulful, dynamic, nurturing and resilience organizations.

    We welcome submissions of original manuscripts (between 6,000 and 9,000 words) which focus on one or more of the following themes:

    1. How imagination is experienced and manifested in organizations and social communities.
    2. How imagination contributes to our understanding of ourselves and of our lives as organizational agents and as social change agents.
    3. How imagination informs reflections on spiritual aspects of management and leadership.
    4. How imaginative stories are expressed and manifested in organizations and/or communities, and what role they play in these contexts.

    Submission deadline: June 15th, 2021
