Dr Jeremy Aroles
Jeremy Aroles is an Assistant Professor in Organization Studies at Durham University Business School. Prior to joining Durham, he was a lecturer in management and organisation studies at the University of Manchester. He obtained a BSc (Hons) in Management, a MPhil in Business and Management and a PhD in Organisation Studies at the University of Manchester. Additionally, he completed two distance-learning degrees (BA in Linguistics and BA in Anthropology).
His research currently gravitates around three different topics: the emergence of new ways of working (the future of work, digital nomadism, the disruptive potential of new working practices, the evolving relationship between ‘formal’ organisations and individuals in an increasingly digitized society, etc.), the management of culture, and the relation between fiction and organizational worlds. Conceptually, his work draws from the material semiotics of the actor-network theory, the work of Gilles Deleuze (and Félix Guattari) and of various phenomenologists. He is particularly interested in interdisciplinary research. Finally, he is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
