BAM 2017 Medal for Research awarded to Professor Coupland


We are delighted to reveal that Professor Christine Coupland was awarded a British Academy of Management Medal for Research at the BAM 2017 conference award presentation ceremony yesterday, September 5th.

The Medal, judged by the BAM Executive and Dean of Fellows, is awarded to BAM members  for sustained, original contributions to management research by a BAM member, and the 2017 Medal for Research was presented to Professor Christine Coupland “in recognition for your prolonged contribution to your work and research in the Identity field”.  

Professor Coupland took over the leadership of the Centre for Work, Organisation and Society at the School in 2012 as Director for three years before taking on the roles of Head of Academic Staff and, more recently, Acting Head of the Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour discipline group.

Professor Coupland’s research is principally around careers and identity, with a focus on sports careers and on women’s careers. She has supervised five doctoral students whilst here at the SBE and published numerous articles in leading journals and conference proceedings. She is currently Senior Editor for a leading journal Organization Studies and regularly convenes conference streams both at The British Academy of Management and the European Group of Organizational Studies.

Professor Coupland said:

“I am delighted about the award for the recognition of my research efforts, but it is, in part, down to working with some excellent colleagues among the community of scholars at BAM, Loughborough and internationally.”
