My research and writing is an attempt to widen 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). 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 a book on outlaws. My most recent books were titled 'Life After Covid19' 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, 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.
