Introduction: Henri Lefebvre and Organization Studies

Sytze F. Kingma, Karen Dale, Varda Wasserman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


One of the most important points to make right at the start of this book is the need to not stereotype Henri Lefebvre solely as a theorist of space, as Shields (2001) puts it. Thus we begin with a very brief overview of Lefebvre’s life and work, in an attempt to avoid the “mis-recognition” that has tended to characterize Lefebvre’s categorization by Anglo-American readers, as Aronowitz (2015: 73) argues, where he is ‘placed’ only in relation to a very partial view of his work and life.
