Projects per year
My research interests centre on issues of identity, sensemaking, narrative and change. There are four broad strands to my work: (1) theoretical pieces (e.g., Brown 1997; Brown 2006; Brown & Starkey, 2000; Brown & Thompson, 2013); (2) theoretically-driven case studies (e.g., Brown & Coupland, 2015; Boussebaa & Brown, 2017; Huber & Brown, 2017); (3) analyses of texts (e.g., Brown, 2017; Brown, Ainsworth & Grant, 2012) and (4) reviews (Brown, 2015, 2017). My research is an exploration of aspects of the linguistic turn in Organization Studies, and draws on a broad range of disciplines from literary theory to anthropology and discursive psychology in an effort to theorize processes of organizing, identities and change.
Willing to supervise doctoral students
I have supervised a broad range of PhD students, some of whom have gone on to become highly successful scholars and others who have pursued careers in other industry sectors. I am particularly interested in supervising doctoral research in the following areas:
- Identities in and around organizations
- Organizational identities and processes of identification
- Stories, narratives and storytelling in, of and about organizations
- Sensemaking, power and processes of organizing
- Processes of group and organizational change
