Inaugural lecture by Adjunct Professor Hugh Willmott

Attend Adjunct Professor Hugh Willmott’s inaugural lecture about The Significance of Craft for Research in Business and Management on Friday 2 November 2018.

Friday, November 2, 2018 - 15:00 to 17:00

During his lecture, Adjunct Professor Hugh Willmott will be exploring the meaning and significance of craft for the self-understanding and development of organizational research. The construct of craft is situated in the context of its displacement by modernisation, as a practice characterized by skills that elude standardization and routinization. Consideration of research-as-craft, we suggest, speaks to, and supports, a distinctive – imaginative, embodied and being-centred – aspect and mode of management and organizational research. In unsettling and subverting knower/known and mind/body dualisms, ‘craftiness’ is of ethical and political, as well as methodological, significance.

Hugh Willmott is Professor of Management and Organization Studies at Cass Business School, London. He is a Fellow of the British Academy and Fellow of the Judge Business School Cambridge.
