Presented our paper on Gendered recognition practices and perpetuation of vulnerability at the 10th Biennial International Interdisciplinary Conference on Gender, Work and Organisation in Sydney, Australia. With co-authors Charlotte Holgersson, Marianne Ekman Rising, Monica Lindgren and Anna Wahl, we suggest that
– recognition practices are an important yet under-researched aspect of academic
identity construction processes
– recognition practices are gendered, i.e. we perform gender in our ways of conferring and receiving recognition, constructing what recognition may mean in different local/cultural contexts, constructing when it is to be conferred/received or not, and constructing how it is appropriately played out how in social interaction.
– recognition practices tend to sustain vulnerability among academics, but in different ways for men and women.
We are both professors of Industrial Economics and Management at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Aside from living together, we also run several joint professional projects within research, teaching, public speaking and consulting. We are interested in organization and management in a wide sense, but focused on project management, entrepreneurship, gender studies and leadership.
