RESEARCH METHODS ON GENDER AND MANAGEMENT SEMINARS – ONLINE SERIES HOSTED BY LANCASTER UNIVERSITY MANAGEMENT SCHOOL
The sixth and last seminar of the series will focus on Feminist Post-Humanistic Perspectives with speakers Dr Lara Pecis (Lancaster University), Dr Sophie Alkhaled (Lancaster University) and Professor Natasha Mauthner (Newcastle University)
Hosts: Professor Valerie Stead & Dr Sophie Alkhaled (Lancaster University)
This seminar introduces some reflections on the possibilities of using concept as method in organisation and management research. Inspired by Gherardi’s (2019) provocation on whether, in the context of post-humanist research we ‘need’ gender any longer, this piece aims at illustrating how materialities and meanings are mutually constituted in knowledge production. In this seminar I will present a diffractive analysis of a piece of ethnographic work with researchers in a pharmacological institute. In the analysis, the researcher’s body and the material-discursive setting of the encounter with the participants show the transcorporeal performance of sexual differences at work.
