INNOVATION AND ORGANIZATION
- Seminar Exploring New Work Practices in Organizations: from Marxist Materialism to Merleau-Ponty
François-Xavier De Vaujany is a Professor of Management at Université Paris-Dauphine, PSL.
Beyond discourses and discursive approaches, he is particularly interested in the role of embodiment, spatiality, visuality, materiality and historical narratives in the processes of legitimation of new managerial practices (e.g. telework, mobility, coworking, distributed work, corporate hacking, etc.).
In 2014, he has founded an academic network (RGCS: the Research Group on Collaborative Spaces) about collaborative communities and collaborative movements involved in new work practices (i.e. coworkers, makers, fabbers, makers…). His work has been published in academic journals in organization studies (Organization Science, Organization, Culture & Organization, Management & Organizational History, etc.) and information systems (European Journal of Information Systems, Information & Organization, JIT, ITP, etc.).
He has recently co-edited two books: Materiality, Rules and Regulations (London: Palgrave) and Théories des organisations (Paris: Economica).
