The Centre for Work, Organisation and Society aims to support cross-disciplinary research on work, society and organisational life.
The Centre is a hub for internationally recognised, innovative and critical research on all aspects of work, organisations and society. Its interdisciplinary research draws on the humanities and social sciences, bringing in perspectives from disciplines such as cultural studies, history, literary theory, philosophy, psychology, sociology and political economy.
The Centre's strengths lie in social scientific research with a largely qualitative orientation, with growing capacity in aesthetic and visual methods, and workplace ethnography.
"The Centre for Work, Organisation and Society is an international hub for research that makes a global impact within and across disciplines. Through established and emerging collaborative partnerships, through our publications, events, impact and engagement activities, our research on work, organisations and society makes a substantial contribution to knowledge, strategy, policy and practice. Our centre provides a focal point that brings researchers together to share interests and expertise, to support research on work and organisational life, the economy and society, now and in the future."
