Social Protest Novels in Management Education: Using "Hawk's Nest" to Enhance Stakeholder Analysis
Westerman, James W.; Westerman, Jennifer Hughes
Journal of Management Education, v33 n6 p659-675 2009
This article examines the potential of the social protest novel as a teaching tool in the management classroom. It suggests that the social protest novel provides a uniquely powerful medium in that it effectively captures the student's imagination and interest with an engrossing narrative, personalizes the importance of management issues and decisions through a student's identification with the characters, and utilizes its grounding in real world events to demonstrate the capacity for change. This article introduces Hubert Skidmore's "Hawk's Nest" as a powerful social protest novel for use in the management classroom, with specific applications in stakeholder analysis and business ethics.
