Albert J. Mills, PhD is the Director of the Sobey School of Business PhD Management Program at Saint Mary’s University (Canada). Albert’s research focuses on the impact of organizational life on people, especially the development, maintenance, and changing character of discriminatory practices.
A key part of his studies involves understanding the role of history and the past. He has largely pursued this focus through a series of long term studies of commercial aviation, in particular British Airways, Pan American Airways, Air Canada and, more recently Qantas. The outcome of these studies can be seen in over forty books and Special Issues, and over 100 journals articles and a similar number of book chapters.
He is the co-editor of the journal Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management, and Co-Chair of the International Board for Critical Management Studies. His more recent books include `Insights and Research on the study of Gender and Intersectionality in International Airline Cultures. Bingley: Emerald, (2017);AGEING, ORGANIZATIONS AND MANAGEMENT: Constructive discourses and critical perspectives: London: Palgrave, 2017; `Absent Aviators: Gender Issues in Aviation' (London: Ashgate, 2014).
