Dr Richard Hull (27 January 2016)


Lecturer (p/t) and Director of the Masters in Social Entrepreneurship, Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship, Goldsmiths, University of London. An accomplished academic researcher and research evaluator, my distinctive value is a rigorous cross-disciplinary approach. This is based firstly on expertise in Innovation Studies whose focus on research and innovation processes provides analytical tools drawing on economics, history, political economy, social theory and sociology; and secondly on practical experience with Third Sector organisations complemented by expertise in organisational development. Since 2007 my research has focussed on practical involvement with the Third Sector – especially social enterprises – and community development. I have previously worked at Newcastle University Business School, Manchester Business School, Brunel University and UMIST. I have over 50 publications including a paper reprinted in two different international reference collections. I was the Founding Series Editor of Dialogues in Critical Management Studies, with volume 2 published in October 2013, and co-editor of the collections The Third Sector (Emerald, 2011), Managing Knowledge: Critical Investigations of Work and Learning (Macmillan, 2000), and Knowledge and Innovation in the New Service Economy (Edward Elgar, 2000).
