Interdisciplinary (retail) research: The business of geography and the geography of business

By Martin D. Owens, L. Sparks and M. Palmer

Abstract

NoAt the 2005 British Academy of Management conference several well-known economic\ud geographers, including Neil Wrigley, Gordon Clark, and Susan Christopherson, called\ud for management researchers to engage with economic geographers on interrelated\ud geographical and managerial issues in the study of (retail) firms. In this commentary\ud we reflect upon the present geography -management interface.We begin by considering\ud the term `interdisciplinary research' and its relationship to any management - geography interface. This is followed by a context-specific discussion of international retailing and the role of research on the retail transnational corporation (TNC) in developing an interdisciplinary agenda. This commentary represents an initial more business and management focused response to the call from geography academics for more/better interdisciplinary research at the geography - management interface

Topics: Retail firms, Interdisciplinary research, Economic geography, International retailing, Geography-management interface
