From the same city as Michael Palin, Sean Bean and The Full Monty, Martin Wood is a teacher, researcher, theorist, writer and filmmaker. In the past, he has served at leading public research universities in the UK. In 2011, he became a professor in the School of Management at RMIT University. He coordinates the Organisation, Design and Innovation research theme in the Centre for Sustainable Organisations and Work (CSOW).
Martin has published in key scholarly outlets including the Academy of Management Journal, for which he jointly won the 2005 Best Paper Award. In addition, his short documentary Lines of Flight (2009) has won three international film festival awards.
In his research and scholarship, he pursues a philosophy of process, particularly the nexus among Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, and Alfred North Whitehead, through a range of media and empirical domains. Themes specific to his most recent publications include:
- Attention to epistemological diversity, enlarging the set of things that can count as academic research, including areas that seem to be at odds with the very idea of research in its broadest sense;
- Forms of non-representation available to contest too-narrow definitions of theory and practice and any simplistic dichotomising between thinking and doing;
- Encourage better public engagement with university research.?
