CUNLIFFE NAMED VISITING PROFESSOR AT UNIVERSITIES IN SCOTLAND AND ENGLAND

February 20, 2007

(Albuquerque, New Mexico) Professor Ann Cunliffe of the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico has been awarded Visiting Professorships at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland and Leeds University in England.

The position of Visiting Professor is an honorary award conferred upon academics who have a record of teaching and publishing, and who have an international reputation in a particular field of study - in Cunliffe’s case, organization theory.

Cunliffe has presented a seminar for Scottish Business School faculty at Strathclyde and will do so again later this year. At Leeds she has given a number of seminars for PhD and Master’s students. In addition, she has presented seminars in Denmark as well as other universities in the United Kingdom.

Cunliffe’s current research interests draw on organizational studies, philosophy, and communications to explore how organizational members shape culture, identities, and action within everyday conversations. She is also interested in examining the relationship between linguistic practices and collaborative, responsive and ethical ways of managing organizations.
