Jette Ernst, Assistant Professor, PhD, researches topics that can be located within the intersection of organization and management research. She is interested in how managers and their subordinates respond to changes in the local as well as wider environment. Her current work includes themes such as professionalism and professional identities in hospitals, organizational knowledge and power, the symbolic aspects of organizing, merger and culture,  and change and reproduction driven by dominant cultural narratives. She uses ethnographic methodology combined with practice theory and narrative theory.
