Professor David Knights

Distinguished Scholar

Research Overview

My research interests are broad within the area of work and organization studies including gender, technology, higher education and the financial sector. My current research has been related to academics in business schools, the global financial crisis, the body and embodiment and most recently, veterinary surgeons. I jointly created and edited Gender, Work, and Organization from 1994 until 2016 and now am on the advisory editorial board. I have published several books and international refereed journal articles, the latest of which is an edited book entitled Leadership Matters?”: Finding Voice, Connection and Meaning in the 21st Century, New York: Greenleaf, 2017 with Chris Mabey. I have benefited from securing numerous research grants the latest of which are concerned with the study of veterinary surgeons.
