post-structural feminist theory
women in organisation
Areas of expertise
My current research interests are eclectic but fall into 3 main areas:
• The application of critical and cultural theory in organisation studies. I am particularly interested in post-structural feminist theory such as the work of Julia Kristeva and Judith Butler and the ways it can illuminate aspects of organisation, organising and organisers in a variety of contexts.
• Management history and in particular the unregarded histories of women in organisation. Together with Anne Rippin, I am developing a research stream in this area, bringing together scholars from the social sciences and humanities.
• Social and 'green' enterprise and entrepreneurs. Issues around growth, mission/market tension and gender are areas of special interest.
