    The Association of Female Leaders with Donations and Operating Margin in Nonprofit Organizations.Veena L. Brown & Erica E. Harris - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics 185 (1):223-243.
    We examine the impact of employing a female, versus a male, leader on future (t + 1) donations and operating margin using a sample of 4387 unique nonprofit organizations (NPOs) between 2011 and 2014. Using two-stage and matched sample designs, we find that NPOs headed by female leaders report higher future operating margins but lower future donations. We interpret these findings to mean that female leaders are more focused on fiscal responsibility than fundraising. We also find that female leaders with (...)

    Why Bad Things Happen to Good Organizations: The Link Between Governance and Asset Diversions in Public Charities.Erica Harris, Christine Petrovits & Michelle H. Yetman - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 146 (1):149-166.
    In the United States, the IRS now requires charities to publicly disclose any significant asset diversion, which is the theft or unauthorized use of assets, that the charity identifies during the year. We use this new disclosure to investigate whether strong governance reduces the likelihood of a charitable asset diversion. Specifically, for a sample of 1528 charities from 2008 to 2012, we simultaneously examine eleven measures of governance that capture four broad governance constructs: board monitoring, independence of key individuals, tone (...)

    The Effect of Large Corporate Donors on Non-profit Performance.Andrew R. Finley, Curtis Hall, Erica Harris & Stephen J. Lusch - 2020 - Journal of Business Ethics 172 (3):463-485.
    Using a dataset of corporate philanthropic gifts of $1 million or more, we examine the influence of corporate donors on the performance of recipient non-profit organizations. We find that corporate donors positively influence NPO performance, specifically in the form of higher revenues per employee, program ratios, and fundraising returns. We find little evidence that large foundation or individual donors similarly enhance organizational performance. In additional analysis, we find that large corporate donations matter when the corporation is more likely to have (...)

    Fact versus feeling: What post-truth scholarship can learn from the feminist phenomenology of affect.Erica Harris - 2023 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 49 (2):192-202.
    Although it is a relatively new phenomenon, the most popular descriptions of post-truth operate within the boundaries of the classical dichotomy between emotion and reason that dates back to Plato’s Phaedrus: both, to some extent, view emotions as impediments to knowledge and our ability to live morally upstanding lives (248a-b). Post-truth, which is seen as a threat to reason, social cohesion, and fact-based knowledge claims, is either viewed as the outcome of the failure of our cognitive apparatus, or a consequence (...)

    The Enjoyment of Pure Reasoning.Lode Lauwaert & Erica Harris - 2015 - Philosophy Today 59 (2):191-206.
    This paper is dedicated to a discussion of Gilles Deleuze’s Coldness and Cruelty and its special place in French Sade studies. In this text, Deleuze famously argues against the notion of ‘sadomasochism’ as a unity. Sadism and masochism are, on his view, two entirely separate and incompatible ways of making use of pain and suffering in perversion. What is less known about Deleuze’s text is that he argues, against the current in French philosophy, psychiatry, and even intuition, that the essence (...)

    The Effect of Investor Sentiment on Nonprofit Donations.Keval Amin & Erica Harris - 2020 - Journal of Business Ethics 175 (2):427-450.
    Prior work shows that capital market participants including investors, analysts, and managers are all impacted by the prevailing level of investor sentiment. We extend this line of work by investigating whether the effects of sentiment spill over into the nonprofit sector by affecting donors’ spending to support moral causes. While donors are driven by ethical, altruistic, and other utility-maximizing motives, it is unclear whether behavioral biases stemming from sentiment would influence donors’ decisions to give. We shed light on this issue (...)

    Sidestepping the Problem of the Unconscious: Why We Ought to Reframe the Lacan/Merleau-Ponty Debate in Bodily Terms.Erica Harris - 2016 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 30 (3):267-277.
    At a colloquium in Bonneval, Lacan criticized Merleau-Ponty for his inability to account for the unconscious. For this reason he concluded the latter’s philosophy was fundamentally incompatible with psychoanalysis. This argument set the tone for scholars who studied the relationship between phenomenology and psychoanalysis. J. B. Pontalis, for example, famously argues that Merleau-Ponty misuses the term unconscious. According to Pontalis, Merleau-Ponty equates the unconscious with a “horizon” of possible experience: a moment of experience that is currently in shadow but can (...)
