Dr Innan Sasaki
Associate Professor
(Organisation and Work Group)

I am Associate professor in Organisation Studies at Warwick Business School since September, 2019. Previously I worked at Lancaster University Management School as a lecturer, and as guest research associate in University of Kyoto in Japan, and University of Turku in Finland.

I am interested in the theories of cultural reproduction, collective memory, and traditions in organizations and fields. I study long-living and heritage-based craft firms, refugees, and indigenous people to understand how they culturally survive.

I teach both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels at WBS. I am the module leader for the module Critical Issues in Management. I received a recognition for outstanding contribution to the undergraduate programs in 2019-20.

I am one of the editors of an Organization Studies special issue on "Rediscovering and Theorizing Craft in Organization Studies" (deadline for submissions: 28th February 2022): https://journals.sagepub.com/page/oss/call-for-papers

My work has received best paper awards and is published in leading peer-reviewed journals. I am a member of the Academy of Management and the European Group of Organization Studies and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the UK.

I am looking for PhD students who share similar research interest as me and conduct qualitative studies.
