Dr. Abdoulie Sallah

Senior Lecturer in HRM and OB

School of Marketing and Management
Coventry Business School
Faculty of Business and Law



I am a Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour and Research Cluster Lead. I am interested in the politics of knowledge production and my research and writing is an attempt to understand and re-significance the excluded, occluded, omitted and marginalized narratives and voices in management and organisation studies (particularly those from the South) as well as contesting the redemptive, totalising and pugnacious capitalist narrative within the context of socio-economic development and the wider fringes of work. Spatially, I am interested in organisational leadership and spaces, work and its organisation, postcolonial reasoning, employee engagement, the informal economy, globalisation and entrepreneurship.

I am the Editor - Journal of Critical Southern Studies (Globalisation & Development Stream) as well as a reviewer for seven other peer reviewed international journals.
