There has been ongoing dialogue in our field regarding the value of examining extreme, unconventional, or unsettling contexts in management research. To further add to, and extend, such discussions, we have put together a panel of scholars who have conducted studies examining the unusual in organizations, succeeded in publishing it in top journals, and crafted their research identities in different ways. Importantly, this symposium not only includes discussion of the "dos and do nots" for data collection and paper writing, but also offers tips and reflections on managing one's identity when doing work that others may perceive as different, odd, unconventional, or even taboo.
