Personal details

Drs, PhD

I studied for my first degree, in culture studies, at The University of Chicago. I did my Drs. in Conflict Psychology at Leiden University (NL). His PhD, a study in the role of ideology in higher education, was awarded by the Vrije Universiteit (Free University) Amsterdam. Before coming to Leicester, I taught at the Universiteit voor Humanistiek, Utrecht (NL) where he was Research Professor and Director of the part-time PhD program. Before that, I taught at RSM (Rotterdam School of Management) Erasmus University (NL), the MEd, of the University of Amsterdam (Nutsseminarium) and in the Department of Labor Relations of the Utrecht Polytechnic (de Horst). Further teaching roles have been: Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley, Osaka City University, L’Université de Montpellier-2, Durham University and the University of Essex; and External Professorships: at Lancaster, Keele and UWE. I joined the School of Management in 2012.


My research interests centre on the humanization of organisation, focusing on the ethnography of complex (emergent) organisation(s) and the post-phenomenological interpretation of ‘organising’. The ‘turn to affect’ in ethnography is important to his work. My research interests are philosophically and ethically informed and include CSR / business ethics, organization & aesthetics, ‘care’, coherence and emergence. I am currently pursuing these themes through investigation of ‘critical communitarianism’, ‘demos’ and new forms of critical practice.
