In recent years ethnographic research has increasingly been applied to orthodox and critical social and management science approaches to the study of work and organisations. Current areas of research in mainstream management studies include the implications of new organisational forms, work restructuring, employee involvement, empowerment, changing conditions of employment, new management control methods and information systems on the lived-experience of work and their impact on job-satisfaction, job-security, employee motivation and morale, commitment, leadership and change. In critical management and labour process studies these areas of research are examined more critically within the context of their impact on employee subjectivity and identity, gender politics, ethics, knowledge, power, control, oppression, exploitation, alienation and subjugation. Other key broader social science areas of interest within the field include the impact and implications of organisational and institutional changes within public sector services and local authorities for professional groups, communities and wider civic society. There is also a growing interest in the contribution of virtual or new media mediated ethnographies, the relationship between ethnography and art, ethnographies of consumption and community, and ethnography as emotional labour: dealing with fear, anxiety and stress in the field.
