About Jeff Hearn

Research profile and interests

I am originally from London, UK, and studied Geography at Oxford, Urban Planning and Sociology at Oxford Brookes, and Organisation Studies at Leeds Universities, before teaching sociology, social policy, organisations and groups, men and masculinities, and social theory at Bradford University. It was at Bradford that I also completed my PhD on social planning, social theory and theories of patriarchy, and later ended 21 years working there as head of department. In 1995 I moved to a Faculty of Social Sciences Research Chair at Manchester University based in Social Policy. Since the late 1990s I have lived in the Nordic region, mainly in Finland, where I have worked at Oslo University in Norway as professor II in sociology, Hanken School of Economics in Finland as professor of management and organisation, and Linköping University in Sweden as professor of gender studies, before transferring to Örebro in 2013.

Having worked over many years in gender studies, organisation and management studies, social policy, and sociology, I have a broad critical approach to questions of social and political change. However, the area I am probably most known for is research in the sub-field of critical studies on men and masculinities. This area I have been involved with since the late 1970s and have been genuinely surprised by how it has developed.

There are two other major areas I have worked on for a long time, namely, organisations, management and work, with special emphasis on gender, sexuality, diversity and intersectionality in and around organisations; and violence and violations, especially men's violence to women and children.

Beyond those areas, my research interests are rather wide and include: postcolonialism and transnationalisations; social theory, methodology, material-discursive analysis; autoethnography, memory work; information society and ICTs; cultural studies; embodiment and ageing. My current research focuses mainly on transnationalisations, men and masculinities, sexuality, violence, work, and organisations. The co-edited book, Rethinking Transnational Men, was published in 2013, and the authored book, Men of the World, comes out in 2015.
