    Gendered incorporations: Critically embodied reflections on the gender divide in organisation studies2011Ingår i: International Journal of Work Organisation and Emotion, ISSN 1740-8938, E-ISSN 1740-8946, Vol. 4, nr 3-4, s. 217-235Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Challenging yet extending extant efforts in organisation studies to disrupt the gender divide, we develop an embodied account to more fundamentally dissolve the binaries that divide conventional forms of female and male embodiment. Despite a proliferation of literature on the body and emotion in sociology and organisation studies, it is our view that much of it remains deeply disembodied, treating the body pretty much like any other sociological phenomenon, i.e., as a mere object of study. In seeking to dissolve the gender divide, we incorporate a number of vignettes in an attempt to write our own bodies into the text. While reflecting about our own masculine (David and Torkild) and transgender (Torkild) embodiment, we critically discuss how transgender, in particular, may constitute a vehicle for challenging and disrupting the gender divide.

    Multiplicity, Virtuality and Organization: The Contribution of Gilles Deleuze2007Ingår i: Organization Studies, ISSN 0170-8406, E-ISSN 1741-3044, Vol. 28, nr 8, s. 1483-1501Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Formal organization is often seen as opposed or resistant to change, in theory as well as in practice. Drawing primarily on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze we argue that the reverse is true — that organization is itself a dynamic quality and that change and organization are imbricated in each other. We expand several key concepts of this philosophy in relation to organization (the multiplicity of order and the multiplicity of organization, strata and meshworks, virtuality and multitude) all of which draw attention to the unstable but ever-present forces that subvert and disrupt, escape, exceed and change organization. This enables an understanding of organization as creatively autosubversive — not fixed, but in motion, never resting and constantly trembling.

    MARCH MEETS MARX: THEPOLITICS OF EXPLOITATIONAND EXPLORATION IN THEMANAGEMENT OF LIFE ANDLABOUR2013Ingår i: Managing 'human resources' by exploiting and exploring people's potentials / [ed] Mikael Holmqvist, Andre Spicer, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2013, Vol. 37, s. 129-159Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In contrast to the largely functionalist and apolitical literature which dominates organisational scholarship on exploitation and exploration after March, this paper seeks to complement this view of exploitation and exploration with a Marxist reading which is unwittingly implied by these terms. More specifically, we combine neo-Marxist and paleo-Marxist arguments to more fully understand the conflictual relations that underpin exploitation and exploration in the management of firms. This enables us to address both the objective and subjective dimensions of exploitation and exploration which firms and workers are involved in through the contemporary capitalist labour process. We illustrate this by drawing on a case study of a large Swedish manufacturing firm which sought to improve lean production by systematically helping employees to explore their own lifestyles and possibilities for a healthier and happier life.

    Deleuze and the deterritorialization of strategy2018Ingår i: Critical Perspectives on Accounting, ISSN 1045-2354, E-ISSN 1095-9955, Vol. 53, s. 69-78Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Mainstream ideas of strategy are aimed at gaining and maintaining power. In contrast, the work of Deleuze and Guattari is directed against the concentration of corporate and state power and capitalist forms of exploitation. Their writings provide us with valuable concepts for understanding the workings of strategy and exploring creative ways through which strategy can be re-evaluated and subverted. This paper develops three of Deleuze and Guattari’s main concepts for understanding the strategic movements within contemporary capitalism: i) nomadic strategy, ii) deterritorialization, and iii) the occupation of smooth space. It then uses these concepts to explain the rise of new strategies in the domains of the news media, the music industry and the Occupy movement, which attempt to subvert corporate forms of exploitation. This radically challenges existing processual notions of strategy that have an underlying conservative bias, as well as other popular conceptions of strategy like Porter’s management of “barriers to entry”.

    The Ethics of Affective Leadership: Organizing Good Encounters Without Leaders2018Ingår i: Business ethics quarterly, ISSN 1052-150X, E-ISSN 2153-3326, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 51-69Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the fundamental question of what is ethical leadership by rearticulating relations between leaders and followers in terms of affective leadership. The article develops a Spinozian conception of ethics which is underpinned by a deep suspicion of ethical systems that hold obedience as a primary virtue. We argue that the existing research into ethical leadership tends to underplay the ethical capacities of followers by presuming that they are in need of direction or care by morally superior leaders. In contrast, affective leadership advocates a profoundly political version of ethics, which involves people in the pursuit of joyful encounters that augment our capacity to affect and be affected by others. Instead of being led by people in leadership positions, we are led by active affections that enhance our capacity for moral action.

    Affective politics in gendered organizations: Affirmative notes on becoming-woman2017Ingår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 24, nr 1, s. 105-123Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Current approaches to the study of affective relations are over-determined in a way that ignores their radicality, yet abstracted to such an extent that the corporeality and differentially lived experience of power and resistance is neglected. To radicalize the potential of everyday affects, this article calls for an intensification of corporeality in affect research. We do this by exploring the affective trajectory of ‘becoming-woman’ introduced by Deleuze and Guattari. Becoming-woman is a process of gendered deterritorialization and a specific variation on becoming-minoritarian. Rather than a reference to empirical women, becoming-woman is a necessary force of critique against the phallogocentric powers that shape and constrain working lives in gendered organizations. While extant research on gendered organizations tends to focus on the overwhelming power of oppressive gender structures, engaging with becoming-woman releases affective flows and possibilities that contest and transgress the increasingly subtle and confusing ways in which gendered organization affects people at work. Through becoming-woman, an affective and affirmative politics capable of resisting the effects of gendered organization becomes possible. This serves to further challenge gendered oppression in organizations and to affirm a life beyond the harsh limits that gender can impose.

    Dissensus! Radical Democracy and Business Ethics2020Ingår i: Journal of Business Ethics, ISSN 0167-4544, E-ISSN 1573-0697, Vol. 164, nr 4, s. 627-632Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this introductory essay, we outline the relationship between political dissensus and radical democracy, focusing especially on how such a politics might inform the study of business ethics. This politics is located historically in the failure of liberal democracy to live up to its promise, as well as the deleterious response to that from reactionary populism, strong-man authoritarianism, and exploitative capitalism. In the context of these political vicissitudes, we turn to radical democracy as a form of contestation that offers hope in an affirmative, inclusive and sustainable alternative. On this basis we introduce the papers in the special issue as a collective exploration of the ethics and politics of radical democracy as manifesting in dissensus and the subversion of corporate and elite power by alternative democratic practices and realities.

    All talk and no movement? Homeless coping and resistance to urban planning2012Ingår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 19, nr 4, s. 441-460Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Privileging the discursive expression of micro-resistance while exploiting spatial metaphors such as cynical distancing and escape, recent work in Critical Management Studies (CMS) has tended to find resistance everywhere without actually examining its spatial whereabouts. Utilizing a spatial approach, this article therefore investigates how homeless people in Stockholm not only resisted but also coped otherwise with two urban planning projects that intended to drive them away from two public places. Whereas some of the homeless subverted the planners’ intentions by returning, others confirmed their intentions by leaving. The article further discusses the nomadic nature of these movements and how they were related to homeless discourses of apathy, cynicism and contentment. Finally, it discusses what implications this may have for homeless people and urban planning organizations, and for the understanding of resistance in CMS.

    Free At Last? Assembling, Producing and Organizing Sexual Spaces in Swedish Sex Education2010Ingår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 17, nr 1, s. 91-112Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article seeks to critically investigate the assembling, production and organization of female and male sexuality in contemporary Swedish sex education. The empirical focus is on booklets and leaflets published by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (the RFSU). Employing the concept of assemblages articulated by Deleuze and Guattari and rearticulated in social, organizational and feminist theorizing, the article examines how the RFSU material assembles, produces and organizes the sexual spaces of female and male embodiment (bodily zones, passages, surfaces, interiors, extensions, orifices and cavities) by promoting particular sexual practices. While the RFSU assemblages may seem to express a celebratory attitude towards sexual diversity, freedom and enjoyment, the article argues that the extent to which they undo a dichotomous and stereotypical organization of sexuality and gender is limited. Finally, the article discusses what implications this may have for organization theory.

    Living on the edge: Towards a monstrous organization theory2006Ingår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 13, nr 2, s. 163-193Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Following the recent curiosity for monsters in social and organizational research, this paper questions the power, purity and boundaries of organization by accentuating its risky encounters with heterogeneous, monstrous bodies. In an attempt to problematize organization theory’s implicit dissociation of monsters from organization, the understanding and treatment of monsters is traced across a variety of discursive formations in Western history—from Medieval and Renaissance theology and medicine, via Classical life science, freak shows and contemporary performance art, to recent social science and organization theory. Invoking Deleuze and Guattari’s (1988) work on creative involution, the paper goes beyond previous social and organizational research in thinking the radicality of monsters, and it concludes with an argument for a monstrous organization theory that: (i) encourages organizational researchers to critically reflect about their own monstrosity; (ii) challenges the stigmatization of monstrous embodiment; and (iii) delves into bodies that live on the edge and disrupt organizational boundaries

    More passion than the job requires?: Monstrously transgressive leadership in the promotion of health at work2013Ingår i: Leadership, ISSN 1742-7150, E-ISSN 1742-7169, Vol. 9, nr 3 (SI), s. 396-415Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite Weber’s early emphasis on passionate emotions in charismatic leadership and a recent but broader interest in the embodied and emotional aspects of leadership, we still know relatively little about how passions are embodied in leadership. We also know little about how such passions may transgress formally and socially defined limits of leadership in organizations. Through a case of workplace health promotion this paper therefore investigates how people in organizational leadership roles passionately – and corporeally – transgress the limits of these roles whilst pursuing organizational change. Going beyond extant research, the paper argues that the leaders’ pursuit of health was driven by their own embodied passions as well as by organizational rationales, but that their passions were expressed in largely non-charismatic ways that de-motivated rather than motivated employees.

    The ghost in the organism2002Ingår i: Organization Studies, ISSN 17413044, Vol. 23, nr 5, s. 817-839Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The emergence of the idea that organizations are like organisms is generally seen as having saved organization studies (OS) from its mechanistic precepts. We argue that it has not. Rather, the mechanistic underpinnings of organization merely found a new medium of expression in the organism metaphor. This is largely due to the particular legacy that first informed so-called organic thinking about organizations in the 20th century. This essai investigates the history of the words organization and organism and asks how it became possible for one to be used as a metaphor for the other. Then it examines the way that the organism was brought into the fold of organization so as to reinforce the Modernist and mechanistic underpinnings of the field. We conclude that if the mechanistic ghost in the organism is to be exorcised, OS needs to recognize and rethink these underlying premises. Towards this end, we offer two alternative ways of thinking organization via the organism: one pre-Modem and one post-Modern.

    From stress to resistance: Challenging the capitalist underpinnings of mental unhealth in work and organizations2022Ingår i: International journal of management reviews (Print), ISSN 1460-8545, E-ISSN 1468-2370, Vol. 24, nr 4, s. 577-598Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The worldwide spread of work-related mental unhealth suggests that this is a major problem affecting organizations and employees on a global scale. In this paper, we therefore provide a thematic review of the literatures that address this issue in management and organization studies (MOS) and related fields. While these literatures examine how employee mental health is affected by organizational and occupational structures and managed by organizations and employees, they have paid relatively little attention to the capitalist labour relations which underpin the unhealthy conditions of contemporary working life. They have paid even less attention to how these conditions may be resisted. To help future scholarship in MOS challenge this state of affairs, we draw on some of the most basic but central notions of exploitation, alienation and resistance in classic and current critiques of capitalism, optimistic that this may help strengthen the field's capacity to confront mental unhealth in settings of work and organization.

    Feeling and speaking through our gendered bodies: Embodied self-reflection and research practice in organisation studies2012Ingår i: International Journal of Work Organisation and Emotion, ISSN 1740-8938, E-ISSN 1740-8946, Vol. 5, nr 1, s. 91-108Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the growing organisational literature on the gendered body, we argue that much of this literature remains disembodied. We therefore seek to further embody the study of gendered bodies and organisations by viewing the body as lived gendered embodiment and by writing our own viscerally embodied experiences into our discussion. We first discuss the phenomenological approach to lived gendered embodiment and how this has been utilised in organisation studies. We then discuss how research on lived gendered embodiment might become more viscerally self–reflective. Throughout, we integrate these discussions with our own visceral and gendered self–reflections from teaching and research.

    Open space = open minds?: Unintended consequences of pro-creative office design2011Ingår i: International Journal of Work Organisation and Emotion, ISSN 1740-8938, E-ISSN 1740-8946, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 78-98Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, open office design has witnessed a shift from formalised design models toward the promotion of fun, spontaneity and creativity through design. Using qualitative data from two case studies, we investigate how this 'new spirit' of open and pro-creative office design may afford a broader range of behaviours than originally intended. We argue that it may actually undermine the kind of creativity that it is intended to foster, producing unforeseen forms of employee creativity that normalise rather than disrupt structures and boundaries. Finally, we discuss what implications this may have for the understanding of organisational politics.

    Buggering Freud and Deleuze: Towards a queer theory of masochism2010Ingår i: Journal of Aesthetics & Culture, E-ISSN 2000-4214, Vol. 2, s. 1-10Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Both Freud’s and Deleuze’s understandings of masochism limit the transgressive and subversive forces of masochism by taking sexual difference for granted. Drawing on Newton’s fashion photography for Wolford and on feminist interrogations of Freud, Deleuze and masochism, this paper therefore seeks to develop an alternative, queer theory of masochism as sexual indifference. Viewing masochism as sexual indifference opens up movements of desire beyond the heterosexual matrix of male masochists and female mistresses. This is therefore an exercise in buggery. In the first half of the paper we bugger Freud’s understanding of masochism with Deleuze’s diverging understanding of masochism. In the second half we bugger Deleuze’s understanding of masochism with other parts of his own work, with feminist critique, and with Newton’s photography.

    Just doing gender? Transvestism and the power of underdoing gender in everyday life and work2016Ingår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 23, nr 2, s. 250-271Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    While previous research in organization studies has utilized transgender to show how gender is done, overdone and undone, this literature lacks empirical grounding, and the theoretical arguments dominating it tend to idealize the transgressive power of transgender while reducing transgender to hyperbolic drag and stereotypical passing. To further advance the understanding of transgender within and around organizations, this article presents a qualitative study from a Northern European country to investigate how male-to-female transvestites do and undo gender in everyday life and work. In contrast to extant research, we found that participants did transgender and undid gender by underdoing gender, that is, by combining feminine, masculine and ungendered practices and attributes in ways that made passing and drag insignificant. As transvestites simultaneously expressed masculine and feminine forms of embodiment, we argue that they may more obviously challenge, though not dismantle, dominant forms of gender and identity than suggested by previous accounts. We conclude by discussing broader implications for the understanding of gender, identity, power and resistance in organizations.

    The humanities are not our patient2021Ingår i: Management Learning, ISSN 1350-5076, E-ISSN 1461-7307, Vol. 52, nr 3, s. 364-373, artikel-id 1350507620986931Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    When inviting contributions to a special issue of this journal titled ‘Management Learning and the Unsettled Humanities’ the guest editors did not simply encourage contributors to explore possibilities ‘for reciprocal integration’ between the two realms. Stressing that ‘the humanities . . . [are] facing a complex crisis on their own’, they stated that ‘the humanities . . . need to be enriched, nuanced, and critiqued through . . . the ideas and perspectives of organisational research’. While we may agree that all is not well in the humanities and share their scepticism towards ‘just prescribing the value of the humanities to ameliorate the ills of management education’, we are less confident that the humanities need management learning as much as we need them. As long as learning and scholarship in management and organisation studies continues to suffer from too much management, we doubt that ‘management education [may help] . . . unsettl[e] . . . the human within the . . . humanistic . . . disciplines’. Rather, students of management and organisation still have plenty to learn from the humanities, not least from its rich portrayal of human lives. It is on this basis we draw the conclusion that the humanities are not our patient.

    What can bodies do? Reading Spinoza for an affective ethics of organizational life2015Ingår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 22, nr 2, s. 235-250Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent attempts to develop an embodied understanding of ethics in organizations have tended to mobilize a Levinasian and “im/possible” ethics of recognition, which separates ethics and embodiment from politics and organization. We argue that this separation is unrealistic, unsustainable, and an unhelpful starting point for an embodied ethics of organizations. Instead of rescuing and modifying the ethics of recognition, we propose an embodied ethics of organizational life through Spinoza’s affective ethics. Neither a moral rule system nor an infinite duty to recognize the other, Spinoza offers a theory of the good, powerful and joyful life by asking what bodies can do. Rather than an unrestrained, irresponsible and individualistic quest for power and freedom, this suggests that we enhance our capacities to affect and be affected by relating to a variety of different bodies. We first scrutinize recent attempts to develop an ethics of recognition and embodiment in organization studies. We then explore key concepts and central arguments of Spinozian ethics. Finally, we discuss what a Spinozian ethics means for the theory and practice of embodied ethics in organizational life.

    Beyond Fashion’s Alluring Surface: Connecting the Fashion Image and the Lived Realities of Female Workers in the Fashion Industry2018Ingår i: Symbols and Organizational Practice: The Gendered Dynamics of Powers / [ed] Agnes Bolsø; Stine H. Bang Svendsen; Siri Øyslebø Sørensen, Routledge, 2018, s. 72-84Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many western countries are increasingly dependent on the wealth generated by fashion companies while emerging economies such as Bangladesh and Vietnam are dependent on the jobs produced through the manufacturing of garments for fashion companies. And while women in western countries remain the main targets of fashion, its artefacts and images cannot be produced without the labour of underpaid women – whether sweatshop garment workers or under-aged models, many of whom are exploited and exchangeable. This chapter connects the separate worlds of fashion image and the reality of textile and modelling labour by exploring how fashion imagery is imbricated in the organization of its production process.

    What’s Wrong with Queer?

    Abstract [en]

    In this short piece we take issue with the current separatist tendencies that are being expressed in certain parts of the queer community. We illustrate how this compares with central ideas in proto-queer thought and queer theory, and how it risks undermining the possibility of a queer dialogue and queer politics.
