New Appointment: Dr Annette Clancy


We are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Annette Clancy as Lecturer in the School of Art History & Cultural Policy, starting January 2019. Annette will contribute to the MA in Cultural Policy & Arts Management programme.

The focus of Annette's research is on emotion in organisations and in particular how unconscious dynamics influence and inform leadership and management. For the past three years she has held the temporary post of assistant professor of management at the Quinn School of Business at UCD. Prior to joining UCD Annette ran her own organisational consultancy practice for over 17 years consulting to and coaching senior executives, teams, and boards of directors in over 100 organisations cross the public, private and cultural sectors in Ireland, the UK and the USA. She is also an experienced arts manager, producer and curator and prior to establishing her business held senior management positions in the arts and cultural sector in Ireland and the UK.

Annette earned her PhD at the University of Bath where her doctoral research was an in-depth, qualitative study of the inter-personal and organisational dynamics of disappointment (frequently assumed to be a 'negative' emotion) and explored how it might be reimagined as a catalyst for organisational learning and creativity. Her research has been published in the highest ranked journals in her field including the British Journal of Management and the Journal of Management Education.  Her current research interests include; the application of arts-based methods to management education and, a psychoanalytic study of the politics of boredom (a collaboration with Axis arts centre in Ballymun).
