The history of management thought, especially relating to the cultural, philosophical and theological foundations of seemingly secular contemporary practices and ideas; the life, work and legacy of Henry Ford (and Fordism); the intersection between literary fiction and organization studies, especially as it relates to understanding organizational character and key figures in the contemporary economy (interns, graduates, dropouts, entrepreneurs); the cultural history of HRM and HRD (recruitment, selection and performance management); the themes of 'boredom' and 'danger' as they relate to metaphysical conceptions of 'work' in the writing of Ernst Jünger.
