Dr J. Miguel Imas


I am a social psychologist interested in organisational, entrepreneurial and creative processes that affect marginal communities in mostly but not exclusively Latin America and Africa. I focus on how these communities creatively organise and challenge the inequality and environmental degradation they suffer. Adopting critical ethnographic and visual methodologies, I approach my research from decolonial/postcolonial and critical management theoretical perspectives.

Influenced by my critical research, I have developed in my teaching the Kingston i-lab. The Kingston i-lab is a learning-creative space dedicated to developing innovative management and business practices that help communities to live in sustainable terms, caring for others and the environment.

I hold and have held visiting professorships in universities in Chile, Brazil and Argentina. I contribute to review articles for journals such as Organization and Organization Studies as well as for academic associations such as the US Academy of Management. I have helped to organise and conduct conference streams and contribute to the editorial board of journals in Latin America and Europe.
