Dr Emma Jeanes is a Senior Lecturer at the Exeter Business School, University of Exeter and is affiliated to Lund University, Sweden. Prior to her appointment, she worked at Cardiff University. She conducts research within the broad area of organisational behaviour and organisation theory, particularly gender, identity, control, ethics, and also has an interest in organising in rural contexts, and in farming in particular. She also studies the process of research, and researcher collaboration. Her earlier work focused on public services, including the NHS and Housing Association sector (research funded by the ESRC and Housing Corporation).

She is the Associate Editor for Gender, Work and Organization, and was previously a member of the editorial board of Journal of Finance and Management in Public Services and the Series Editor of Gender and Organization Theory (Ashgate Publishing). She recently co-edited the Wiley Handbook in Gender, Work and Organization (2011) with David Knights and Patricia Yancey Martin, and Men, Wage Work and Family (2012) with Paula McDonald. Dr Jeanes publishes in journals such as British Journal of Management, Journal of Management Inquiry; Gender, Work and Organization, Public Administration, Scandinavian Journal of Management, and Creativity and Innovation Management.

Dr Jeanes was previously Head of Undergraduate Studies then Head of Taught Programmes, and has undertaken a number of other administrative roles during her time at Exeter, including: Ethics Officer, Exams Officer, MRes Programme Director, Admissions Tutor, and Editor of the working paper series. She has also chaired and been a member of a number of school committees, and served on various University-level committees.

Research clusters

Research interests

Experiences of work, gender, discrimination, ethics, and the distinctions between work and life ‘outside’ of (paid) work; adopts an historical, sociological and philosophical approach to research.

  • Gender & discrimination
  • Intersection between work and life ‘outside’ of paid employment
  • Organising in ‘ethical’ & rural contexts
  • Ethics and reflexivity
  • Draws on notions of time, identity, power and difference

Dr Jeanes‘s research focuses on gender and notions of ‘identity‘ in organisations, and the intersection between family / identity and the nature of time at work. She explores these issues with ideas drawn from the writing of Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida, Emmanuel Levinas and Henri Bergson. Dr Jeanes also researches in the area of ethics in organisations and research practice, and has an interest in organising in a rural context, particularly in farming (and was involved in a Defra-funded project relating to this topic). She has also written in the field of creativity, particularly in relation to ideas of Gilles Deleuze. Dr Jeanes‘s research also explores issues at the fringes of organisations, and takes a genealogical, historical as well as contemporary approach. Her work is also often empirical and not exclusively philosophical.

Research projects

Dr Jeanes‘s current research activity includes:

  • working on an archive-based study ‘Living with the marriage bar‘, funded by the British Academy (principal investigator), looking at women‘s experience of exclusion from the workplace as a result of marriage
  • working on ethics and ethical brands as a means of organisational control (funded by Handelsbanken Foundation); and with Robin Canniford, Melbourne University, and Alex Thompson on brands and ethics
  • Writing on ethics and reflexivity in researcher collaborations (with Bernadette Loacker & Martyna Śliwa), and research practice
  • working with Jens Rennstam, Lund University on diversity within the Swedish police force
  • working on lone parents, time and identity with Rachel Gibson
