Webinar abstract:

My research centers on harassment and discrimination in contemporary organizational work settings. Empirically, I work with data from Danish universities. My interest lies within the research field of feminist and anti-racist critical management studies, including perspectives from queer feminist theory, black feminist studies and critical race theory. More specifically, I am exploring the concepts of harassment and discrimination from an intersectional perspective, taking into account how they are understood, perceived and negotiated between people in contemporary organizational work settings.

Methodologically, I am trying to explore organizational tensions, inconsistencies and complexities while avoiding to fix normativities in the research process. In order to do so, I employ anti-narrative research, operationalized through embodied methodologies as well as practices of queer listening, both in my data collection and analysis. In the presentation I will discuss both, the possibilities and implications of using embodied anti-narrative methodologies in research on harassment and discrimination in organizations.
