Fabian Bartsch, Petra Riefler, and Adamantios Diamantopoulos have been selected as the recipients of the annual Hans B. Thorelli Award for their article, “A Taxonomy and Review of Positive Consumer Dispositions Toward Foreign Countries and Globalization,” which appeared in the March 2016 issue (Vol. 24, No. 1) of Journal of International Marketing. The award honors a Journal of International Marketing article published 5+ years ago that has made the most significant and long-term contribution to international marketing theory or practice. This year, eligible articles are those published in or before 2016.
The committee overseeing the selection process comprised Gary Knight (Willamette University), Ruta Ruzeviciute (University of Tennessee Knoxville), and Stanford Westjohn (University of Alabama). The committee praised the article’s potential for continued long-term impact, as “it studies a broad phenomenon of interest to JIM readers in different subdisciplines, synthesizes a scattered literature on the “global consumer” disposition, and contributes not only theoretically, but also in a practical sense with respect to choosing the appropriate conceptualization and operationalization of the construct.”
