Projects per year
I work principally in three areas Critical diversity studies, Creative methodologies for management research and learning, and Digital labour.
I am interested in the ways that organisational discourses and practices create forms of knowledge and emotional response that function to ‘organise difference’ in particular ways. I ask: Which differences between people do we understand as being important? What meanings do we attach to forms of difference? How do we seek to ‘manage’ difference? What are the material consequences of these processes? I extend these questions into a variety of empirical settings, including organisational ‘diversity’ practices and digital work, and develop novel creative methodologies to learn about them.
I am one fourth of the collective Building the Antiracist Classroom that have been working to develop practices of antiracism in higher education since 2017. We have been developing knowledge, networks and partnerships to advise cross-institutionally about engaging with antiracism in our teaching and research. Institutions we have collaborated with include: University of Kent, Exester University, Queen Mary University London, Middlesex University, Loughborough Uniersity, Leeds Beckett.
I also am part of the Writing Differently collective, and active in engaging with artistic practices as a part of learning; and continually seek to explore how they can enrich our writing, research, and teaching. Part of VIDA- The critical management women's association, and a founding member of the Decolonising Alliance.
