Projects per year
I am a Reader in Work and Organization Studies and Co-director of the Centre for Action Research and Critical Inquiry in Organisations (ARCIO) at the School of Management. My work centres around ethics, politics and difference in work and organization. I have an interest in how systems and structures of inequality, including those reified by climate change and narratives of sustainability, offer new insights into business, politics and society.
I am currently engaged in a number of research projects that draw on the intersections between structures of inequality, organisations and society, namely: critiquing and investigating the relationship between affect, language and corporeality; ethico-political resistance in activism and social movements; feminist methodologies; vulnerability and the politics of solidarity; and craft practices informed by new materialism.
My previous work has explored: the politics of writing; corporeality in physical labour under neoliberalism; dirty work and critical approaches to innovation. I also have a longstanding interest in using critical perspectives to teach and research leadership.
I am co-editor (with Emma Bell) of the book series ‘Feminist Perspectives on Work and Organization’, published by Bristol University Press. I publish in journals such as: Organization Studies; Human Relations; Work, Employment and Society; Journal of Business Ethics and Organization amongst others and am Associate Editor and editorial board member for Gender, Work and Organization. I have co-edited special issues of: Organization; Gender, Work and Organization; and Leadership.
