Colleges, School and Institutes

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.
