KULeuven and currently visiting professor at the Radboud University.
Patrizia holds a PhD in Business from KU Leuven, and master’s degrees in International Sciences (University of Trieste) and Social and Cultural Anthropology (KU Leuven). Her scholarly work draws on critically oriented theoretical traditions including critical discourse analysis and Marxist theory to theorize and empirically investigate how historically subordinated social identities (e.g. gender, ethnicity, disability, and age) inform struggles over the generation and distribution of symbolic and economic value within and across organizations.
Her collaborative work has appeared in Organization, Organization Studies, Human Relations, Journal of Management Studies, Scandinavian Journal of Management, Journal of World Business, Culture and Organization as well as established international educational journals.
She currently serves as an associate editor of Organization, and sits on the International Critical Management Studies Board and on the editorial board of British Journal of Management. Next to her teaching, she regularly acts as a scientific advisor in policy committees and projects whose aim is to foster equality in companies, public administration bodies, schools and universities.
