Dr Lindsay Stringfellow is a Senior Lecturer in the Organisation Studies department. Having previously studied politics at the University of Manchester, she joined Exeter in 2008 after undertaking her PhD at Strathclyde University, looking at the interplay between social capital and the development of small professional firms.
Her research interests are broadly in the sociology of the professions, with a particular interest in small practitioners and how understanding smaller organisations contributes to our broader understanding of the professional field. Her work often takes a Bourdieusian perspective, and focuses critically on issues of status, legitimacy and power in the professions, particularly accounting. Her interest in Pierre Bourdieu also spans into cultural reproduction, where she has examined taste and the impact of celebritisation on the culinary field, as well as across new forms of media.
