MANAGEMENT GRADUATE TO SEE ESSAY IN PRINT

 

Lincoln Management student Juan Watterson is to achieve the rare feat of seeing one of his coursework essays in print.

 

Juan (21), who will graduate from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside at Lincoln Cathedral next week, wrote his essay on the usefulness of postmodernism to the manager. 

 

Unit co-ordinator Dr Carole Brooke was so impressed with his work that she and decided to submit it to TAMARA, the Journal of Critical Postmodern Organizational Science. The essay has already been published in the journal’s on-line edition.

 

Juan’s essay, which argued that the tools of postmodernism can be translated into the workplace, is in rarefied company on the TAMARA web site. Other articles include ‘Feminist imaginings on postmodern management/organisations as praxis’, ‘Textuality and the postmodern neglect of the politics of representation’ and

‘Pomophobia – fear of postmodernists and their ideas’.

 

During his three years in Lincoln Juan has worked as a student ambassador, helping with university open days and a recent schools Junior Parliament. Last year he represented his native Isle of Man at the Commonwealth Millennium Youth Parliament, and this summer he will be attending the International Youth Leadership Conference in Prague.

 

He has accepted a job from September with international accountancy firm KPMG to work in the area of public sector assurance and hopes eventually to pursue a career in politics in the Isle of Man.

 

He will graduate with a BA (Hons) in Management at 11.30am on Wednesday 18th July 2001. You can read his article on-line at:
