I have previously had jobs in sociology and management at Staffordshire, Keele, Warwick and Leicester universities. My training is mostly in sociology, with some anthropology and cultural studies, and I have a particular interest in various meanings of the word 'culture'; and alternatives to conventional organization.

I have written and edited books on a variety of topics. The next one is called 'Shut Down the Business School', with Pluto press. Other books are about social and organizational theory, market managerialism and higher education, culture and popular culture, the humanities and management education, utopianism, conspiracy theory, the Apollo space programme, business ethics, critical management studies, and alternative organizations. At the moment, I'm working on various bits and pieces in culture and organization (the history of zoos and collections,  dead spaces by the sides of roads, and something on comic books). 

I always enjoy writing journalism, and have written quite a bit for quite a few different places. Have a look at my pieces on The Conversation ( and then offer me some work. I’m also happy to talk to journalists about any of the topics I’m interested in.

If you want to see what I look like, just put 'Martin Parker Leicester' into Google videos, then sit back and enjoy the fun.
