I'm changing jobs. As of next week I will be Assistant Professor in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies at University of Warwick, working with Celia Lury and others. So sadly my involvement in the world of co-operatives and mutuals will decline somewhat, although I've been working on three reports on that topic over the last few months, all of which should be published during the autumn. I'll be replaced at the Centre for Mutual & Employee-owned Business by the excellent Ruth Yeoman, whose PhD looks at meaningful work and workplace democracy.
And if you want to know just what the hell a Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies is supposed to do, I will explain in due course. However, some of the rationale for the centre might be detected in this, this [pdf] and this.
Oh, and I've now joined twitter. For the third time.
