Scheduled at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, in Gannett Auditorium, Palamountain Hall, the lecture is free and open to the public

The talk will cover the shape of things to come in a rapidly changing world—a world that has included enormous economic shocks (in both the United States and Europe) whose effects could last for several decades. Prasad asks, “Are we standing at the threshold of the much-anticipated Asian century?” He will answer this question and more in his Skidmore presentation.

Also a university research scholar, he applies an interdisciplinary orientation to such problems as globalization and its implications for business and management, strategic action and corporate legitimacy in the global petroleum industry, workspace diversity and multiculturalism, and organizational culture and ideology. His scholarly record includes more than 100 books, articles, chapters, papers, and presentations. His research has appeared in leading academic journals, including The Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, Human Relations, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, and Journal of Management Inquiry.

Prasad edited Postcolonial Theory and Organizational Analysis: A Critical Engagement (2003, Palgrave/Macmillan/St. Martin’s Press) and co-edited Managing the Organizational Melting Pot: Dilemmas of Workplace Diversity (1997, Sage Publications).
