On Wednesday 13 October at 1pm, Kent Business School’s Dr. Sideeq Mohammed lecturer in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management will be holding a free virtual launch of his brand new title – Stories and Organization in the Anthropocene: A Critical Look at the Impossibility of Sustainability.
His publication poses questions about the stories being told by people and organisations in the Anthropocene; stories that we live on the brink of ecological collapse and must make radical changes in order to avert catastrophe, stories of as greenwashing, of sustainable development goals, of climate agreements or of the importance of going vegan.
At this book launch, Dr. Sideeq Mohammed, will speak briefly about some of the books key themes and core concepts. We’ll also hear from Professor Damian O’Doherty from the University of Liverpool Management School who’ll be acting as a discussant and will open the floor for questions from the audience.
Dr. Sideeq Mohammed is a Lecturer in Organizational Behaviour/HRM at the University of Kent. Sideeq’s work is interested in engaging with philosophy in order to critically reflect on the problems posed by “organization” in the contemporary milieu. He has a particular fondness for the works of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari and has published work that draws heavily on their mode of experimenting with “concepts” in order to think in more robust ways.
