Dr Lucia Cervi

Formerly at Lancaster University

Lucia Cervi


I am an interdisciplinary academic involved in corporate responsibility, sustainability, and the socio-political dynamics surrounding organisations and organised life. I am particularly interested in the social aspect of sustainability, and its intersection with the corporate, the neoliberal, and the political.

I obtained both my MSc and my PhD in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR) at the University of Nottingham. Prior to this, I obtained my BSc (hons) in Political Science, International Relations and Human Rights from the University of Padova.

Since joining Lancaster University in 2017, I have been leading modules on corporate responsibility at the Executive level, at the postgraduate level, and at the undergraduate level. I have further been contributing to multiple other modules across the department of Organisation, Work and Technology (OWT) and Lancaster University Management School (LUMS).

I supervise undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations within both OWT and LUMS. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and the Programme Director for the BSc in Management and Information Technology (MIT).

My research interests and outputs are as interdisciplinary as my background and my interests. I am currently involved in projects investigating gender, reproduction, and the fertility sector in the UK, as well as in projects examining the implications of big tech’s (un)ethical practices on our experiences of time and history in particular.

I am a member of the Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business, of the Academy for Gender, Work and Leadership, and of the SPRITE+ Hub.
