Sharon C. Boltonis Professor of Organisational Analysis and Head of Stirling Management School, University of Stirling, Scotland, UK. She completed her PhD at the University of Lancaster Management School (1999), enjoyed a period as Simon Marks Research Fellow at University of Manchester in the Sociology Department (1999), took up her first lecturing post at University of Lancaster Management School (2000), spent over 5 years at the University of Strathclyde Business School as Professor of Organisational Analysis (2007-12) and Head of Department of Management (2010 – 2012), and moved to Stirling Management School in December 2012. In a previous life, Sharon worked as a Senior Administrator in the public and private sectors. Her research interests broadly cover the sociology of work with a particular focus on the emotional labour process, public sector management, the nursing and teaching labour process, gender and the professions, and dignity in and at work.  Recent research is focused upon an exploration of ‘dignity in and at work’, and a consideration of the changing nature of work within a moral economy. The origins of Sharon’s research interests lie in some perennial questions concerning what is it to be human, how can we better understand the relationship between people, work and society, and what is the fundamental conception of humanity embedded in the political economy?
