From 3 to 4pm in the Schulich CIBC Marketplace, refreshments will be served and there will be a gallery of research poster presentations and books. Some of the research looks at homelessness and the role of accounting in structuring poverty; timing a smooth and efficient retirement income plane; logic violations – emotions, institutional expectations and the dynamics of emotive institutional work; and making markets work for poor producers in least developed countries.

The poster session will be the place to meet for collegial discussion and networking, and an opportunity to learn about Schulich’s research expertise, while engaging with academics and practitioners from the research community.
