Professor Mats Alvesson - Professor of Business Administration at Lund University

11 June 2019 14.00 - 15.30, The Edge Management Suite, University of Bath

Mats Alvesson will challenge the taken-for-granted assumptions and language of the leadership industry and make a case for reflexive leadership. He will discuss the critical deployment of leadership theories and other social science perspectives and the options and limitations of leadership. He will present alternative management, power, autonomy, groups and network relations that could help develop more thoughtful thinking and practice in academic and practitioner contexts.

Professor Mats Alvesson holds a chair in the Business Administration Department at Lunch University in Sweden. He is also a part-time professor at the University of Queensland Business School and City University London.

Dr Joanna Williams - Head of Education and Culture at Policy Exchange and Associate Editor of Spiked

21 February 2019 14.00 - 15.30, The Edge Management Suite, University of Bath

Joanna Williams argues that the limits of academic freedom are often reached when there are claims of potential for harm. She suggests that the acceptance that words can wound relies on an expansive definition of violence that takes us beyond the physical and into a psychological terrain. She illustrates how broader understandings of who can be harmed by speech appear to encompass reputational damage to the university as well as to entire sections of the population. She asks whether it is possible, or even desirable, to defend academic freedom within a marketised higher education sector that privileges customer satisfaction in the form of emotional safety.

Dr Joanna Williams is Head of Education and Culture at Policy Exchange and Associate Editor of Spiked. She was previously Director of the Centre for the Study of Higher Education, University of Kent.
