Call for papers: The Spillover Effect of Crises

On 11 November 2022, the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC) at Erasmus University is pleased to host and organise a virtual research symposium about the spillover effect of crises: understanding when and why crises spread from one organization to another.

The spillover effect of crises has become an emerging research topic in the field of crisis communication. This phenomenon is of particular importance in an age of social media increasing the speed by which a crisis can spread from one organization to another.

Considering the importance of the topic and the research interest among scholars, this one-day research symposium aims to create a multidisciplinary dialogue among scholars in order to gain a better understanding of the spillover effect of crises and its consequences for organizations and society. We intend to bring together scholars from (but not limited to) the fields of communication, management, and marketing.

Submissions

When, why and how does the spillover phenomenon occur? How can spillover crises be effectively managed? Both theoretical and empirical submissions are welcome. The empirical studies can use quantitative or qualitative methods.

Public Relations Review has a special issue linked with the research symposium. The research symposium is an opportunity for scholars to receive feedback on their abstracts prior to the deadline for submission of papers for the special issue on the 1st of April, 2023.
