Research interests

Dr Granter’s research interests are fairly wide in that they range from empirical study of life at work, to theoretical analysis of organization and politics as a ‘racket’. He has provided a number of perspectives on the work of the Frankfurt School Critical Theorists; Adorno, Horkheimer and Marcuse and this is a long-term research theme. Dr Granter wrote a book on the end of work in 2009, and continues to follow and write about changes in the world of work and employment.
