Research

Overview

Jeremy’s research currently gravitates around three different topics:

  • The emergence of new ways of working (eg 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 cultural organisations (eg competing institutional logics, museums, libraries, arts galleries)
  • The relation between fiction and organizational worlds

Conceptually, Jeremy is interested in a wide array of approaches. His works has notably drawn from the material semiotics of the actor-network theory, the work of Gilles Deleuze (and Félix Guattari) and the writings of various phenomenologists (such as Merleau-Ponty or Ricoeur). He is particularly interested in interdisciplinary research.

Jeremy’s empirical research is qualitative; he has experience conducting ethnographic research, interviews as well as online research.
