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.
