Srinath Jagannathan completed his Fellow Program in Management from Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad in 2011. He worked on workers’ experiences of insecurity for his doctoral dissertation. His doctoral work spanned qualitative inquiries from a post structural frame with informal economy workers, refugees, temporary workers and workers with formal employment contracts. He worked in the Centre for Labour Studies in Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai for more than three years before joining IIM Indore. He also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering and a Master’s Degree in History from the University of Mumbai.
His research interests span the domain of critical management studies. In his research, he has examined the implications of the performance of violence by actors and agencies of the state. He has also examined processes through which organisational wrongdoing becomes normalised and positions that may need to be nurtured in order to contest wrongdoing. He is interested in understanding how contemporary enactments of the employment relationship may reveal dark metaphors such as that of kidnapping. Through his research, he is interested in voicing the concerns of marginal workers and understanding how turns in the political economy are affecting them.
