    Personal Statement

    Garance Marechal joined the Management School in September 2003 as a Lecturer in Strategic Management. Her PhD thesis, which she defended in 2006 at Paris-Dauphine University (Paris), analysed decision-making, learning and strategizing processes at a major global management consulting firm. It was designed as a radical constructivist methodolological journey based on both ethnographic and autoethnographic fieldwork. Garance also holds a MBA (Grande Ecole diploma) from ESC Tours, a MRes in Marketing and Strategy from Paris-Dauphine University and a MA in Sociological Research from Lancaster University.

    She has convened streams and workshops at various international conferences including the EGOS Colloquium, the EURAM Conference, the Academy of Management Conference, the Critical Management Studies conference and the Art of Management and Organization Conference. She also chaired a conference on the Dark Side of Organization in 2008. She has published in high quality peer-reviewed academic journals such as Organization Studies (where she edited a Special Issue on the 'Dark Side of Organization'), Human Relations, Culture and Organization (where she edited a Special Issue on the 'Territorial organization'), Qualitative Inquiry and Ephemera.
