miriam feuls
Miriam Feuls is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Organization. She holds a Dr. phil. from the University of the Arts Berlin. Miriam’s research draws on insights from organization studies, process studies, and cultural and social studies to advance understanding of processes of (organizational) continuity and change and their interrelation. Empirically, she is engaged in the study of time and temporality, innovation and creativity, and grand challenges such as climate change and inequality, which she has explored in the context of creative businesses, food production, and life science.

As part of the Actionable Futures project funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, she is exploring organizational transitions to green and sustainable futures. In particular, she examines how large corporations are working toward distant climate goals in the present.

She co-directs the Centre for Organization and Time, which invites multiple understandings of time to explore the more complex and dynamic phenomena of organization and how they can contribute to shaping our societies.
