My research and writing widens the scope of business and management studies, whether in terms of particular sorts of organisations (the worker co-op, circus, zoo etc), or ways of representing organising (in art, cartoons, films etc). I'm also interested in the philosophy of the concept 'organization', and how it can be understood in relation to social justice, digitization and distribution across time and space. There's a full publication list here - https://sites.google.com/site/martinparker1962/Home
My recent writing has been about ‘alternative’ organisation in two senses. One is work on local money, worker self-management, alternative finance and so on. The other is on different ways of thinking about what ‘organisation’ means, so I have written about angels, shipping containers, art galleries, as well as books on outlaws and Daniel Defoe. My most recent books were 'Life After Covid 19' and 'Anarchism, Organization and Management', and the previous one was 'Shut Down the Business School'. I am the lead for the Bristol Inclusive Economy Initiative and a Distinguished Fellow of the Schumacher Institute.
I am also very interested in how academics write, and how they might cultivate new audiences for their ideas, and I write journalism as regularly as I can.
My plans for the next few years include pieces on academic activism, sociodigital organization, weeds and disorganization, comic book villains and the history of journals.
I am available for PhD supervision in social and alternative economy, culture and organization, and the politics and ethics of organizing.
