Ekaterina Chertkovskaya

I joined ephemera in 2012 and am currently based at Lund University, Sweden. My research is in the areas of degrowth and critical management/organisation studies. During the PhD I explored the role of corporations in shaping universities’ agendas in the UK, as well as students’ lives and aspirations, with a particular focus on critiques of the notion of employability and the image of work promoted on campus. As a postdoctoral researcher at Lund, I developed an interest in degrowth, an area that complements critical analysis with attempts for transformation to an ecologically sustainable and socially just world. I am also interested in the themes of alternative organising, power in society, politics of consumption and higher education.
