Feeling and speaking through our gendered bodies: embodied self-reflection and research practice in organisation studies
by Torkild Thanem; David Knights
International Journal of Work Organisation and Emotion (IJWOE), Vol. 5, No. 1, 2012

Abstract: Despite the growing organisational literature on the gendered body, we argue that much of this literature remains disembodied. We therefore seek to further embody the study of gendered bodies and organisations by viewing the body as lived gendered embodiment and by writing our own viscerally embodied experiences into our discussion. We first discuss the phenomenological approach to lived gendered embodiment and how this has been utilised in organisation studies. We then discuss how research on lived gendered embodiment might become more viscerally self-reflective. Throughout, we integrate these discussions with our own visceral and gendered self-reflections from teaching and research.
