PhD supervision

I am interested in supervising PhD students who want to critically explore themes such as disciplinary and post-disciplinary forms of work organization, forms and practices of organizational power, control and critique, processes of work- and profession-related identity and subjectivity constitution, or ethics and creativity at work.


Bernadette joined the Department of Work, Organisation and Technology in August 2015. Previously, she worked at the Department of Business Administration at Lund University (Sweden), the Department of Management at WU Vienna and the Department of Organization and Learning at Innsbruck School of Management (Austria), where she is still a visiting scholar.

Research overview

Bernadette's research interests include contemporary forms of work organization, processes of occupational and professional subjectivity formation, power, control and critique at work, and poststructuralist organization theories. Bernadette has conducted qualitiative studies in fields such as culture and the arts, higher education, (brand) consultancy and the legal professions. She is a member of the editorial collective of the journal ephemera: theory and politics in organization.
