Introduction I am delighted to introduce the second Regent’s University London Annual Research Report, representing the continued achievements of our staff in what has been a momentous year for us.
I hope you will enjoy this review of our research activity over the past year. In Section One we feature profiles of our three research centres, a selection of new book publications and the profiles of selected individual researchers, as well as exploring where our staff have engaged in the academic conference scene. Section Two lists research outputs. It is worthy of note that the number of staff giving papers at conferences has increased since last year, as has the amount of research produced over the past 12 months. In addition to School and Faculty support for research, there has been an increase in the funding allocated for research projects through Regent’s Senate Research Committee.
During the past year, Regent’s gained its own taught-degree awarding powers, followed by the award of full university title to become ‘Regent’s University London’. We are very proud to be the first independent, not-for-profit university established outside the state sector for 30 years, and only the second ever in the UK.
In addition to staff attending conferences elsewhere, we have hosted three research conferences at Regent’s University this academic year. Firstly, the largest research event held on campus, Turkish Migration in Europe: Projecting the next 50 years attracted over 250 participants. This three-day conference brought academics together from across the globe and is detailed later in this report (see page 19). We also partnered with NAFSYAT (an intercultural therapy centre) to host Migration Journeys, a conference for over 120 delegates. Following the success of their annual research conference at Regent’s in 2012, the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) once again held their research conference here in June, indicative of the continuing close collaboration between the UKCP and Regent’s.
The academic year of 2012-13 has seen further developments in research organisation at Regent’s. We have introduced a new role of Research Leader in each Faculty: Professor Jonathan Liu for the Faculty of Business & Management and Dr Tom Villis for the Faculty of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences. They are taking the lead on research strategies, working closely with the Research Administrator. We have applied to become an Affiliated Research Centre of the Open University, which would enable us to offer PhDs in five broad areas, rather than solely in psychotherapy, as is currently the case. Affiliated Research Centre status would also open up many opportunities for international collaborations with other Open University partners.
We believe strongly that a real university requires a commitment to research and we intend to continue building our activities over the next few years so that we can achieve our aspiration of our research-degree awarding powers by 2020. My thanks to our Research Administrator Dr Dogus Simsek and Faculty Research Leaders, Professor Jonathan Liu and Dr Tom Villis for their work on this research report.
Furthermore, for the first time, we will be introducing bursaries for promising PhD students from January 2014.

Regent’s Research Centres
Dr Tom Villis, Director, Networks of Power
Networks of Power Networks of Power (NOP) is a research centre that brings together scholars at Regent’s University London to work on the construction of power relations at a national and international level. Not only are we at the forefront of academic research in this area, but we also provide advice to governments all over the world. NOP forges links between academics and policy makers as well as fostering and supporting high-quality research. Overview 2012/13
During the course of 2012/13 we have hosted a number of speakers including:
Our international speakers’ seminar, organised and chaired by Yossi Mekelberg, has developed one of the most impressive programmes in London. It acts as a forum where links can be forged between academia, the media and various institutions of national and global governance.
›› Benny Dembitzer, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize ›› H.E. Daniel Taub, Israeli ambassador to the UK ›› H.E. Esther Armenteros Cardenas, Cuban ambassador to the UK ›› Sir Geoffrey Nice, former prosecutor at the International Criminal Court ›› Iain Levine from Human Rights Watch ›› Deborah Rayner, Vice President and Managing Editor of CNN ›› Emmanuel Rosen from Israeli Channel 2 TV
Our other research activities over the past year have been divided into four main areas:
Politics and Security in the Middle East The NOP research centre, particularly through the work of Yossi Mekelberg, is becoming widely known as a centre for expertise on Middle-Eastern security. Yossi has an international reputation as one of the foremost experts on the Israeli-Palestinian issue and has built strong links between NOP and the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House
Religion, power and politics Christopher Daily and Tom Villis have produced two important monographs, on British Catholicism and Chinese Protestantism respectively. Tom Villis and Mireille Hebing are working on a study of how discourses of Englishness are used in the arguments for and against siting mosques in English cities.
Over 2012-13 Yossi began a regular column for the influential Arab review, al-Arabiya, wrote articles for CNN, provided briefing papers for Chatham House and participated in more than 100 interviews in the international media. He has spoken at conferences and invited lectures in London, Holland, Geneva, Madrid and St Louis, as well as providing advice on the Iranian nuclear issue and the Iranian elections to the UK Houses of Parliament.
Human Rights Daniel Aguirre has published in the International Human Rights Law Review on non-intervention in new regional human rights systems and spoken on the context of international business and investment in Burma at a conference on indigenous peoples and stateless persons at Webster University, St. Louis. In addition, Neven Andjelic has delivered papers on international humanitarian law in the Balkans, and film and politics in the nation-building process in Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia Herzegovina. He is working on a book on the idea of the ‘Yugo-Sphere’.
Sara Bazoobandi is also an expert on Iranian politics and has over the last year given talks on this and related issues in Prague, London, Durham and at the Doha Forum. She has published on non-state actors in the Middle East and has work in progress for Routledge and Gerlach. Sara is regularly invited by Persian TV channels in London to comment on international affairs.
International Political Economy Orit Gall has contributed to a book by the Institute for Public Policy Research on the emerging crisis of the middle classes. This publication aims to help translate complex new economic thinking into public policy. Alvaro Mendez has been developing a number of projects on the ramifications of Latin American economic growth for the rest of the world. He has been invited to speak at the LSE, Paris, San Francisco, Beijing and the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House. He has also been completing fieldwork for a monograph at the US Department of State and the Inter-American Development Bank.
Key Publications in 2012/13 2012/13 has seen the publication of two major books by NOP staff. Tom Villis’s British Catholics and Fascism (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) sheds new light on religious identity and political extremism in early 20thcentury Britain (see page 11). Christopher Daily’s Robert Morrison and the Protestant Plan for China (Hong Kong University Press, 2013) draws on hitherto untouched archival sources to provide the key work on a neglected subject (see page 10).

Professor Ibrahim Sirkeci, Director, Regent’s Centre for Transnational Studies
Regent’s Centre for Transnational Studies The Regent’s Centre for Transnational Studies (RCTS) has seen a successful academic year celebrated with research events, publications and awards. The RCTS promotes quality research and scholarship that matters to wider society and benefits students, researchers and others at Regent’s and beyond. The Centre also promotes advanced interdisciplinary research and teaching across a broad range of fields in social and management sciences. The research projects carried out and events organised by the Centre offered great value to academic staff and postgraduate students at Regent’s. The guest lectures, transnational marketing seminars and the successful international conference proved to be excellent in developing new research partnerships for RCTS members and other colleagues on campus.
The RCTS focuses on the transnational phenomena that cut across the disciplinary boundaries of management, economics, sociology, and other social sciences. The Centre’s research focuses on six multidisciplinary areas, broadly defined as management, marketing, finance, mobility, higher education and cross-cultural studies. Members are working on these research streams either individually or in teams.
Developing and forging a transnational research community, RCTS accommodated 17 academic members based at Regent’s, 12 affiliate members from other institutions and four visiting research fellows from abroad in 2012-2013. Thus, the RCTS continued forging academic ties with research communities within the UK and beyond particularly in the areas of transnational marketing, transnational finance, and transnational mobility.
Our primary research streams are: ›› ›› ›› ›› ›› ››
Transnational Management Transnational Finance Transnational Marketing Transnational Mobility Transnational Higher Education Cross-Cultural Studies
In 2012/13 the Centre organised a large international conference, Turkish Migration in Europe: Projecting the next 50 years (TMiE2012). This involved collaborations from Oxford University, Ohio State University (US), Bogazici University (Turkey), the University of California-Davis (US), Migration Letters journal, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the British Embassy in Turkey and a local charity organisation. For a full report, see page 19.
Cultures of migration: the global nature of contemporary mobility, co-authored by Professor Ibrahim Sirkeci, Director of the RCTS, was awarded the prestigious ‘Outstanding Academic Title’ status by Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries.
Key publications in 2012/13
The RCTS has also disseminated research via peer-reviewed international scholarly journals, including some edited in-house. Professor Sirkeci is the editor of Migration Letters, a leading international journal in the field. He also edits the Transnational Marketing Journal. Dr Assia Rolls edits Border Crossing: Transnational Working Papers. Professor Jonathan Liu is the editor of International Journal of Business Performance Management, a ranked journal.
Transnational Marketing and Transnational Consumers by Professor Ibrahim Sirkeci (Springer, 2013). This book presents clear and crisp definitions of what is global, international, multinational and transnational in the world of marketing. It explains the key features of a transnational marketing strategy - a key to the success of global small and large organisations - with many real-life examples and illustrations and introduces the insightful new concepts of ‘transnational consumers’ and ‘transnational mobile consumers’ (see page 10).
The RCTS has also hosted a number of international visiting research fellows who won research grants with RCTS sponsorship. International collaboration at RCTS has generated several research grant proposals, which have been submitted to European funding bodies.
Banking in Latin America, After the Great Financial Crisis by Gianfranco A. Vento (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014). Despite recently achieving high levels of economic growth, Latin America continues to be characterised by a weak and inefficient banking sector. Foreign banks have a significant presence, dollarisation is high and the region is characterised by peculiar boom-and-bust cycles in lending. In the first study of the banking sector in Latin America for 30 years, Gianfranco A. Vento investigates this paradox.
The RCTS organises stream of events, including Transnational Marketing Seminars, led by Professor Sirkeci, and the Learning Teaching Forum, led by Dr Assia Rolls, as well as occasional book launches and specialist training seminars. In 2013/4, RCTS will host the following key events:
René Girard: do mimetismo à hominização by Dr Stephane Vinolo (Acabamento, 2012). Dr Vinolo’s book focuses on the process of hominisation in relation to the solution to the violence generated by desires. He argues that the Girardien model helps to understand how the origin of culture is nothing but the appearance of a particular mode of management of violence. The book was originally published in French in 2006 by L’harmattan.

Dr Maria Luca, Director, Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology Reflections Research Centre
Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology Reflections Research Centre The Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology Reflections (PCPR) Research Centre initiates and supports high-quality research of national and international standing. We use innovative methodologies to undertake research on new and emerging topics within psychotherapy and counselling psychology. The Centre holds an outstanding reputation for existential and phenomenological research in psychotherapy and counselling psychology, grounded in the mastersâ€™ and doctorate programmes offered by the Regentâ€™s School of Psychotherapy and Psychology (RSPP).
The core principles underpinning the existing RSPP portfolio of mostly postgraduate programmes is the non-doctrinaire, integrative attitude to psychotherapy and counselling psychology with critical theory and philosophy reflection and a reflective clinical practice. One of the core principles of the PCPR Centre is to encourage student and research-associate publications and create opportunities for them to become involved in the Centre, and we have been successful in involving graduates in research activities.
Overview 2012/13 In the academic year 2012/2013 the Centre continued to promote a pluralistic ethos, strengthen collaborations with external institutions and support the research and scholarly aspirations of staff and students at a national and international level.
The Centre has organised several events, including inner circle Psychotherapeutic Conversations Seminar Series which explores new scholarship in the field of psychotherapy and counselling psychology, utilising a pluralistic ethos and debate among clinicians of different modalities. The Doctorate Graduate Research Workshop Series is given by graduates of the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. 8
Migration Journeys and Inter-Cultural Psychotherapeutic and Psychological Perspectives
Dr Martin Milton, Programme Director of the Professional Doctorate in Existential Phenomenological Counselling Psychology (DPsych) received the 2012 British Psychological Society Award for Promoting Equality of Opportunity.
A partnership between RSPP, PCPRC and Nafsiyat (an inter-cultural therapy centre) led to the creation of a certificate in intercultural theory and practice, scheduled to start with the first cohort in October 2013. The partnership also culminated in a successful one-day conference, Migration Journeys, which took place on 27 April 2013. The conference attracted several paper submissions, 14 of which were accepted and presented. Attendance was excellent, with 120 delegates.
Dr Betty K Rudd, PhD, won the Best Educational Book of the Year Award 2012-2013 for Special Games (published by LDA). She was also shortlisted for SEN Book Award (2012-2013).
Relational psychotherapy, relational research, embodiment and integration
Key publications in 2012/13 Sexual Attraction in Therapy: Beyond the Taboo – A Guide to Training and Practice, edited by Dr Maria Luca. The book is an anthology on sexualities and sexual issues in psychotherapy and psychology. A team of international scholars in psychology and psychotherapy are contributing chapters from a variety of theoretical perspectives on the subject. The book is scheduled for publication with Wiley-Blackwell at the end of 2013. Dr Luca has also been involved in a qualitative research project on trainee therapists’ lived experience of sexual attraction in therapy, due to be completed by the end of 2013 with the expected output of a publication in a peer reviewed journal.
Professor John Nuttall continues to research integration, relationality and therapy. Dr Maria Luca was a keynote speaker at a conference on Relational Qualitative Research in Psychology and Psychotherapy, hosted by the Palacky University in the Czech Republic in May 2013. Dr Luca also ran two workshops on Embodied, Relational, Qualitative Research for staff at Palacky University in May 2013. Post-modern and social constructionist theories in counselling psychology and psychotherapy Research centre staff Dr Maria Luca, Dr Meghan Craig and Dr Cristina Harnagea, together with independent researchers, Dr Nina Burrows, psychologist and a visiting research fellow at the University of Portsmouth, and Dr Henry Whitfield, independent researcher - set up a project on ‘Hermeneutic single case efficacy design of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy’ in March 2012.
A Concise Introduction to Existential Counselling by Martin Adams (Sage Publications, 2013) ‘This concise introduction to existential counselling is a superb addition to the literature on existential counselling and psychotherapy. Martin Adams provides an excellent overview of the field for those who are new to it at the same time as distilling key features in a way which will be valuable for experienced practitioners’ Dr Meg Barker, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the Open University.

Featured New Books Christopher A. Daily, Robert Morrison and the Protestant Plan for China (Hong Kong University Press, Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland Series, 2013)
Ibrahim Sirkeci, Transnational Marketing and Transnational Consumers (Springer, 2013) Transnational marketing and consumers are becoming increasingly common in today’s globalising and fast-moving world of business. This book presents a fresh perspective, focusing on the transnational character of organisations and firms while underlining the importance of the transnationality of marketing strategies for success. At the same time, it introduces the novel concepts of ‘transnational consumers’ and ‘transnational mobile consumers’, which take into account increasing human mobility and its implications for marketing success. This book gives flesh to the ever-popular shorthand term ‘glocal’, which refers to the strategy of thinking globally but acting locally. This is the reality of the current business environment, where the norm is fast movement of goods, services, finance and consumers.
Sent alone to China by the London Missionary Society in 1807, Robert Morrison (1782-1834) was one of the earliest Protestant missionaries in East Asia. During some 27 years in China, Macau and Malacca he worked as translator for the British East India Company, translated the Bible into Chinese, and compiled the first ChineseEnglish dictionary. He also constructed the foundation of Chinese Protestant Christianity. This book critically explores the preparations and strategies behind this first Protestant mission to China. It argues that, while introducing Protestantism into China, Morrison worked to a standard template developed by his tutor David Bogue at the Gosport Academy in England. By bringing this template into conversation with Morrison’s archival collections, the book demonstrates the many ways in which Morrison’s influential mission must be seen within the historical and ideological contexts of British evangelicalism. The result is a new interpretation of the beginnings of Protestant Christianity in China.
This book, published as part of the Springer Briefs in Business series, is aimed at professionals and practitioners as well as students and researchers in marketing. It presents clear and crisp definitions of what is global, international, multinational and transnational in the world of marketing. Professor Sirkeci explains the key features of a transnational marketing strategy, a key to the success of global small and large organisations, with many real-life examples and illustrations. The first half of the book focuses on the transnationalism and transnationality of organisations. The second half revolves around segmentation concepts and identifying consumer segments.
About the Author Dr Christopher Daily works on the early history of Protestant Christianity in China and currently holds posts at Regent’s University London and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. He received his BA in Religious Studies from Hendrix (USA) in 2003, and an MA and PhD in the Study of Religions from SOAS in 2005 and 2009, respectively. In 2009, he was awarded a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for work on early Chinese Protestant Christianity. His research interests broadly cover theory and method in the Study of Religions, World Christianities, the history of religion in China, history of dissenting Protestantism in Britain and the history of Sinology. 10
About the Author Ibrahim Sirkeci is Professor of Transnational Studies and Marketing and Director of the Regent’s Centre for Transnational Studies (RCTS) at Regent’s University London (UK). He holds a PhD in Geography from the University of Sheffield. Prior to Regent’s University London, Professor Sirkeci worked at the University of Bristol and Atilim University in Turkey. His main areas of expertise are human mobility, conflict, transnational marketing and consumers, marketing of business schools, labour markets, remittances, segmentation and digital piracy. Professor Sirkeci has published several books, over 70 research papers and delivered speeches at over 70 conferences and seminars in Europe and the US. He also serves on the editorial boards of several scholarly journals while at the same time editing Transnational Marketing Journal and Migration Letters.
Tom Villis, British Catholics and Fascism (London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) British Catholics and Fascism is a comprehensive study of the way in which British Catholic communities reacted to fascism both at home and abroad. Drawing on substantial primary research, Tom Villis sheds new light on religious identity and political extremism in early 20th-century Britain.
role of political extremism in the British political system is a subject of enduring interest. British Catholics and Fascism helps both complicate and clarify the relationship between religion and politics – a theme which has great contemporary relevance in Britain and across the world.
He examines the careers and thought of numerous prominent Catholic writers and cultural commentators, as well as the role of the Catholic press more generally, the views of the hierarchy and the overtures which the British Union of Fascists made to the Catholic communities. Debates about fascism became symbolic of the wider difficulties in articulating a religious political critique in an increasingly secular political culture. For many Catholics, pro-fascism became a way of expressing their own distinct political and social identity in a society which largely held different views.
About the Author Dr Tom Villis is a senior lecturer in history and politics. He studied at the universities of Edinburgh and Grenoble before completing his PhD at St John’s College, Cambridge in 2004. Before becoming a full-time member of staff at Regent’s University London, Tom was an associate lecturer for the Open University and a lecturer and supervisor for the faculty of history at the University of Cambridge. Tom’s research has focused on anti-parliamentary and elitist ideas in British culture, the intellectual origins of European fascism. At present he is working on discourses of Englishness in the siting of mosques.
Villis’s book not only extends our knowledge of interwar British political culture but has relevance for wider debates about secularisation and politics. It also helps draw attention to minority political identities in Britain which are not obviously reflected at a parliamentary level. The

with the added word count being fleshed out to devote a chapter apiece to Ecology and to the Changing Geography of International Business. Initial indications are that the second edition is selling even better than the first. Who knows, maybe Nick and I will have the honour of doing a third update in three years’ time!
When Oxford University Press came to me in 2008 – just as the global financial crisis was erupting – asking whether I would author a new kind of international business textbook, I jumped at the chance, bringing in my friend and colleague, Nick Bowen.
About the Authors Cllr Alan Sitkin combines his position as Senior Lecturer and Pathway Leader for the European Business School MA in International Business at Regent’s University London with his other work as a councillor for the London Borough of Enfield, where he currently serves as Chair of the Sustainability scrutiny panel, with increasing responsibility for economic regeneration. The same duality is reflected in his educational background, which carried him from the University of California Santa Barbara to l’Institut des Etudes Politiques and HEC Hautes Etudes Commerciales in France, before launching a 15year career in the international capital markets, working out of Paris, Zurich and London. Alan has been with Regent’s since 1999.
Nick and I agreed immediately on what kind of first edition we might write to give students a more realistic sense of the world they would be entering. Our textbook started by eschewing the kind of ideological cheerleading that marked many competitors, a one-size-fits-all approach that seemed highly irrelevant at a time when international business, such as had been practised since 1979, was beginning to show its warts. From the outset, we embraced critiques of globalisation as one way of improving readers’ understanding of the phenomenon. We encouraged political debate and polemics, not self-congratulation. The first edition sold reasonably well in the UK, Northern Europe, the Middle East and South Asia. Oxford University Press asked for certain small changes and updates in the second edition, largely in response to potential buyers’ wishes. There is less emphasis on financial markets in Edition 2,
Dr Nick Bowen retired in 2012 from full-time positions at Regent’s as Principal Lecturer in International Business and Programme Director for the BA (Hons) International Business. He originally joined the European Business School London in 1980. Dr Bowen continues to represent Regent’s University London on the Ad Hoc Council of European Government Business Relations and has just completed the official history of Regent’s (in collaboration with Roz Cooper). He holds degrees from LSE, Lehigh University and Magdalene College, Cambridge. He has been a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Euro Asia Journal of Management since 2008. He is External Examiner for a range of degrees at Oxford Brookes University and Leeds Trinity University. Nick has a long association with the Chartered Institute of Linguists, where he is now President having been elected successively in 2012 and 2013.
Featured Researchers In a nutshell my research seeks to provide practitioners with a clearer understanding of co-creation in practice and why it might be useful to think about service co-creation as a process of resource integration undertaken by two or more actors with the intention of each realising a value proposition. In doing this my co-authors and I primarily research within two contexts where customers play very significant, but differing roles in service provision: technology-based self-service and higher education.
Professor Toni Hilton
Our main contribution to the development of service-dominant logic is that we differentiate between the process of resource integration and the phenomenological determination of value. We argue that it is useful to conceptualise co-creation as a beneficiary-driven construct encompassing both resource integration (behaviours) and value realisation (perceptions). Implicit in the s-dl definition of ‘value-in-use’ is the need for customer involvement in resource integration to some degree and therefore we argue that co-creation of service involves the integration of resources by participating actors. However, the perception of value is personal to each actor and therefore value is not co-created. Rather value is realised by actors as an outcome of the co-creation process.
After gaining my degree in Law and before becoming an academic I pursued a business career in sales and marketing. I worked for blue-chip companies within ‘fast-moving consumer goods’ markets. However, after joining Bristol Business School in the early 1990s, I turned my attentions to the application of marketing principles to the services sector and particularly to the professional services. This switch in focus led to the pursuit of doctoral studies that investigated the switching and loyalty behaviour of private law firm clients within the UK and the publication of three articles. I also developed a research interest in not-for-profit services and this led to further publications to disseminate findings from the first research studies of bequest-giving behaviours. However, since the publication of the seminal article by Stephen Vargo and Robert Lusch, ‘Evolving to a New Dominant Logic for Marketing’ in the Journal of Marketing (2004), I have focussed my research attention on the understanding and application of service-dominant logic (s-dl) to provide new insights to marketing practice. I substantially re-wrote the 3rd edition of the widely used textbook: Baron, S, Harris, K, and Hilton, T, (2009), Services Marketing: text and cases, to reflect the authors’ commitment to the co-creation paradigm upon which s-dl is based.
The value proposition must promise outcomes that are perceived to provide customer value and make it worthwhile for customers to spend or invest their own resources in resource-integrating behaviours. Therefore, in considering ways in which customer resources might be used more effectively, the supplier organisation may need to review the role of staff in providing value to customers. Increasing the tasks undertaken by the customer without enhancing the value perception in other ways may not be effective. The new roles required of staff may involve developing new knowledge and skills: a new set of resources that organisations will need to manage. We suggest that this will involve the role of staff moving from operational to primarily customer support.
My international reputation has grown significantly as a result of my work and publications within the growing field of service-dominant logic. My most recent publications include two publications within the leading UK marketing journal, which is rated at 3* on the ABS list: Journal of Marketing Management as well as one publication within the leading international journal for services marketing: Journal of Services Marketing.
In the course of my teaching and research I increasingly noticed the problematic gap in scholarly and critical analysis of the British musical, as most publications on the history of musical theatre focus almost exclusively on the Broadway industry. There is a pronounced lack of awareness in academia and among the general public of the contribution of British composers, writers, producers and performers to the development of the art form. I have now taken several steps to redress this imbalance.
Dr Olaf Jubin
With fellow academics from seven other UK universities this year I helped to found the British Musical Theatre Research Institute (BMTRI), for which I serve as a member of the steering group. An application for funding for BMTRI, led by colleagues from Winchester and Leeds, to build up a network of contacts, resources and historical records in the field of British musical theatre is under consideration by the AHRC. It is intended as the beginning of a research initiative that aims not only to enhance the scholarly debate on the topic but also, further down the line, to expand the very small list of publications on the British musical.
Over the course of my academic career, I have conducted research on the dubbing and subtitling of film musicals, musical theatre reviewing in the USA, UK and Germany/Austria, cross-promotion in the media, the history of privately owned TV channels in Germany, and the relation between media studies and media practice. This has resulted in the publication of seven books as author, co-author and co-editor. My current research activities include the history of the British musical, the works of lyricist Tim Rice, the James Bond franchise and the films of Brian de Palma.
My next two book projects will be part of this initiative. Last year Professor Robert Gordon of Goldsmiths College, University of London, and I I serve on the editorial board of Studies in Musical were commissioned by Oxford University Press to Theatre, the only academic journal in the field, co-edit the Oxford Handbook of the British Musical, for which I also work as a peer reviewer as well which is slated to be in print by late 2014/Spring as a reviewer and to which I have contributed 2015. The volume intends to restore the British four essays in four years.

A new article — entitled ‘From “entering into a firm” (shusha) to “entering into a profession” (shushoku): The changing identity discourse in Japan’— has received positive reviews and is expected to be published in the British Journal of Industrial Relations in late 2013 or early 2014. To facilitate scholarly exchange and collaborative research, I have been active in presenting papers at various international conferences and workshops. Since I joined Regent’s University London in January 2013, I have attended two conferences. I was invited as a speaker to a conference organised by the Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies, University of Oxford, which focused on the future of Japanese studies. I was also the chair of a research panel on recent labour and employment issues in Japan, China and South Korea for the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) 2013 Annual Conference.
Dr Huiyan Fu As an Oxford-trained social anthropologist, my broad research interests lie in globalisation/ neoliberalism, labour and employment, personhood/identity, gender, political discourse and the anthropology of Japan. I have conducted extensive ethnographic fieldwork inside Japanese business organisations, which is the basis of my first published book on An Emerging Non-Regular Labour Force in Japan: The Dignity of Dispatched Workers (Routledge/ Nissan Institute Japanese Studies, 2011). The book examines Japan’s changing political economy, corporate management and culture against the backdrop of global employment trends. It was reviewed in The Japan Times — ‘Dispatches from the labor front line’ — on 27 November 2011.
Born and raised in Mainland China, I have studied and worked in Japan, the UK and Germany over the past decade. Partly because of this transnational experience, I have not only gained valuable insights into other people’s worlds, but also acquired multi-lingual skills, including Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, English and a smattering of German. My training in social anthropology covers a broad spectrum of international and transnational subjects, including political economy and sociocultural studies. After my doctorate, I worked as a visiting professor (German W2 professorship) at Aalen University from October 2009 to September 2012, where I designed and delivered a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses focusing on globalisation and cross-national comparative business studies from a distinctive social anthropological perspective, based on my existing work on labour and employment in Japan.
More recently, I have enlarged the research scope to include cross-national comparisons. I am currently editing a new book on Globalisation and Temporary Agency Work: Anthropological Perspectives on Labour Flexibility and Inequality. The book project is international in scope and interdisciplinary in approach, bringing together scholars from different countries working in the same or allied fields of research. It aims to provide a comprehensive overview of temporary agency work in the US, Western Europe, Australia, Singapore, China, South Korea and Japan by combining macro and micro levels of analysis, global and local forces, and theoretical and empirical investigations. This research has been published in numerous journals.
In addition to the above academic endeavour, I have considerable industry experience of different Chinese and Japanese business organisations, ranging from cross-cultural business communication, customer relationship management, human resource management and marketing. Those and other real-world experiences have been a vital part of my research journey, reminding me about the importance of ‘on-the-ground’, empirical research.
So when I undertook my doctorate at City University London, I combined a question in which I was really interested (What is this thing we are calling ‘gay affirmative psychotherapy’?) with a grounded theory methodology. The question was important as the concept was being bandied about as one response to the poor practice that sexual minorities received from some psychotherapists, but was poorly defined and not well understood. The method allowed a deep understanding of the experiences of those that provided, or had received, affirmative therapy.

Since then, I have gone on to concentrate on the four broad areas mentioned above, exploring the needs of LGBT clients, as well as the practices of clinical and counselling psychologists when working with LGBT clients, the nature of the existential psychotherapy process and the phenomenology of people that spend significant amounts of time in nature. I have also studied other outlying topics such as the experience of friendships among boxers and MMA fighters and the process of ‘transformation’ that these fighters go through.
I am a counselling psychologist and psychotherapist and my areas of research interest fall broadly into four categories: counselling psychology, existential psychotherapy, LGBT psychology and ecopsychology. As a psychologist my first experience of research was as an undergraduate at the University of Natal in South Africa, where I assisted a professor with a study on sociality in vervet monkeys and the way bats use their echo-location squeaks to communicate as well. The professor went on to contribute enormously to the field of evolutionary psychology, but I am afraid my only insight at the time was that the females in the group seemed to scratch more than the males - but even that didn’t have any statistical significance. (Later on I might have considered whether scratching was a communication in itself, signalling an openness to contact, a call for more grooming and the implications of those possibilities, but at the time ‘scratching’ was as far as I got).
Highlights vary - I remember being incredibly proud of my first publication, then at my first publication in an international journal. A true highlight though was the fact that not only was my doctoral work included in a text edited by Adrian Coyle and Celia Kitzinger - but then also that the book went on to win an American Psychological Association prize. Today, as I write this I am aware of how excited I am to be part of the developments at Regent’s University. My current work has led to a conference presentation in Greece this summer and a third edited book that brings my interest in sexuality and existential therapy together. Of course, I am also delighted to have the chance to work with colleagues and trainees to further illuminate the strengths we have at Regent’s University.
In many ways my limited insights didn’t matter too much, the experience opened my eyes to the ways in which a researcher actually has licence to be curious and to investigate an array of areas that fascinate them. As was the norm for psychology students back then ‘research’ was usually understood to include counting something and subjecting it to statistical analysis of some type. It wasn’t until I was working at the University of Surrey with some inspiring qualitative researchers, such as Dr Adrian Coyle, that I found a way to match my curiosity in people and methods to draw out more of the subjective aspects of people’s lives - that important ‘bit’ around which most us organise our lives - ‘meaning’.
It was hard to imagine when I was trying to make sense of my PhD data on the Lancaster University campus many years ago that, one day, some of my findings would contribute to the development of ‘exploratory practice’ Dr Assia Rolls the language classroom data and the benefits of teachers’ particular understanding of their classroom interaction.
It was hard to imagine when I was trying to make sense of my PhD data on the Lancaster University campus many years ago that, one day, some of my findings would contribute to the development of ‘exploratory practice’ (EP) by my supervisor, then president of the world organisation of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Acknowledging the complexity of life in the language classroom, EP (a form of practitioner research) has firmly established both the learner and the teacher as active participants in the search for a better understanding of their classroom environment. Through the proposal of a principled framework and a set of learner propositions, EP aims to enable both parties to work together to develop a mutual understanding of their learning and teaching phenomena.
The presentations emphasised collaborative practitioner research as a form of mutual development and the view that teachers are not mere implementers of other people’s imperatives and consumers of academic research. Year 2011-2012 were further enhanced with exciting international encounters. I was invited by Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia to examine a doctoral thesis by Ramirez-Balderas Irais on ‘Teachers’ and learners’ beliefs in relation to error and corrective feedback in the context of higher education in Mexico’. I also examined a doctoral thesis by an international student Po-Ying Chu on ‘How students seek for realisation through Exploratory Practice: a journey of teaching, learning and growing together at the School of Education, Leicester University.
In my attempt to extend the use of EP to other taught subjects, in 2009-2010 I invited teachers from law, business management, communication skills and languages to join me in developing a better understanding of their classroom practice, following the principles of EP. Their systematic analysis of their videotaped lessons and classroom interaction aimed to raise their awareness and help them reassess their beliefs about learning, perceptions of learners and practices in the classroom. This project, sponsored by Regent’s University, led to insightful results which I subsequently disseminated internally through the Faculty pedagogic research seminars and the University’s Learning and Teaching Forum (2010), as well as externally. Each of the contributions to international events in Thailand, China and the USA focused on different understandings derived from the analysis of the business versus
More recently, on 20 April 2013, another international venture took place. This time I was invited - along with other Algerian experts in various fields of medicine, renewable energies, business management and engineering - by the Algerian Embassy in London to participate in their third celebration of the Day of Knowledge. I spoke, in the presence of the Algerian ambassador and Secretary of State, about the English language teaching system in Algeria. Both officials confirmed the need and interest in our expertise and contribution to the development of Algeria.
studio experiments, we asked: ‘What is revealed and what is elided when hereditary performance practices are detached from their original contexts?’ We questioned a central tenet of Eugenio Barba’s theorising – the notion that ‘extra-daily body techniques’ can be isolated from specific performance practices, and used to access ‘energy in a pure state’, operative on a ‘pre-expressive level’. Leigh and I counter that the impact of bodily techniques so deployed must also be described in terms of the unusual iterations of gender and ethnicity created. This summer, Leigh and I conclude our research cycle through a third and final conference presentation and the drafting of a journal paper.
Dr Mark James Hamilton My research began as a student at the University of Birmingham, where the faculty guided our exploration of theatre via experimentation then reflection. This was the early days of ‘practiceas-research’, in which conventional modes of study are extended via scholars’ participation in their field - ‘thinking through doing’. Key strands of my enquiries began here.
In parallel with this research, I have been studying the extraordinary Globe to Globe programme at Shakespeare’s Globe. In these enquiries, I follow a research approach that is rarer for me: theorising possibilities before commencing practice-based experiments, or ‘thinking before doing’. In contrast, when working with my Polynesian associate Rosanna Raymond, creation of live-art events drives our theorising. Indeed, her artists’ collective centres on the premise that thoughts and deeds, people and things, are intricately interwoven and indivisible. Together, we explore the Samoan concept of va — space-time as a dialogical continuum, actively holding things and beings in relationships forged by reciprocal obligations. Rosanna’s practice in museums and galleries re-appropriates the exoticising frames and mechanisms first forged by Victorian collectors. Our research particularly challenges academic models that label non-Western contemporary arts as doubly ‘other’ - not Western and not traditional. Our performative conference presentations seek to expose how expectations about cultural difference inform our relationships to artists.
As an undergraduate, I led a peer research cohort, interweaving core methods of Europe’s performance avant-garde: Jerzy Grotowski, Rudolf Laban and Roy Hart. Simultaneously, I began what has become 25 years of intercultural field research in the arts of Kerala (India), Aotearoa (New Zealand), Chen Village (China) and Bahia (Brazil). Finally, through my MPhil research on memory in acting, I began my consideration of Shakespeare in the first and second Elizabethan ages. Through my role as Senior Lecturer in World Stages (Non-Western Practice) at Regent’s University, these strands increasingly interweave. I am developing a syncretic pedagogy to support students’ development into practitioners readied for global, interdisciplinary, pioneering careers.
To these experiments I bring theoretical perspectives developed through my membership of a philosophical colloquium investigating the work of François Laruelle. We consider how his ideas might aid articulation of new understandings about arts practice today. Together, we explore the Samoan concept of In particular, I ask how the ritualisation observed in traditional performance va — space-time as a dialogical continuum, might be seen not as memorialising of actively holding things and beings in the past, but as engagement with what Laruelle calls the contemporary instant.
Since 2011, I have been collaborating with my colleague Leigh Tredger. In summer 2012, we led a practice-as-research project integrating the University’s acting students and professional performers. Through

Regent’s on the Conference Scene research at the conference, the largest group were early career academics who obtained their PhDs in the last decade or so. There was also a strong cohort of new PhDs and PhD students, all presenting interesting research on varying topics ranging from conflict and migration to migrant funerals, museums and marriage patterns.
The coverage of diverse topics is also an indication of the much-improved pool of skilled researchers that is growing in this field. The polarised social and political state of affairs in Turkey and their reflections on the diaspora communities (and vice versa) were elaborated in papers focusing on the axes of ethnic and religious divisions. Integration, an out-of-fashion concept, was not mentioned much, but papers dealing with citizenship, political participation, education and labour market performance as well as culture and gender contributed to this line of debate. The continuum between internal and international migration, neighbourhoods and forward-looking data analyses found less space at the conference, but were there. Although there were several papers directly and indirectly referring to it, research on the economics of migration and remittances were underrepresented. This was due to self-selectivity. However, new avenues for research such as health and well-being and climate and internal migration were discussed.
Turkish Migration in Europe: Projecting the next 50 years International conference report by Professor Ibrahim Sirkeci From 7 to 9 December 2012, Regent’s University London hosted the largest-ever gathering of academics from around the world to share research and scholarship on Turkish migration in Europe with a focus on future projections. The conference attracted over 200 participants and 120 academic papers, co-authored by 169 academics, were presented and discussed in 29 parallel sessions over three days. The keynote speakers included Professor Philip L. Martin, Professor Tariq Modood, Professor Kemal Kirisci, Professor Jeffrey H. Cohen, Professor Dilek Cindoglu and Professor Ibrahim Sirkeci.
As somebody who has studied in the field for nearly two decades, I can say that the conference is the first-ever such large gathering of academics on Turkish migration.
Participants also enjoyed two exhibitions, hosted as extra-curricular events during the conference by the Regent’s Centre for Transnational Studies at Regent’s University London in collaboration with Oxford University and a local community organisation. Those who contributed academically (authors, researchers, reviewers and session moderators) and logistically (administrators, IT services, catering team and volunteers) deserve much applause.
The Turkish diaspora in Europe is pretty much an established one. This means there are settled communities in several countries. For example, in Germany third and fourth generations are mentioned. This does not mean migration has stopped. These communities are developed as transnational communities with living spaces spanning beyond national boundaries. There is
As somebody who has studied in the field for nearly two decades, I can say that the conference is the first-ever such large gathering of academics on Turkish migration. This obviously indicates a growing interest among academics, Turkish and non-Turkish alike. Among those who presented
evidence for ever-increasing mobility. However, it is not a one-way street. Turkey is no longer just a source or transit country. We have seen several exchanges referring to this as a fact. Indeed in my own presentation as part of the plenary session on Saturday morning, my colleague Neli Esipova and I presented preliminary findings from a Gallup world poll, where it was evident that, compared to the rest of Europe, lower out-migration prospects were observed in Turkey. Turkey’s difficult relationship with the European Union was probably one of the most popular questions during the conference. The ViceChancellor of Regent’s University London, Professor Aldwyn Cooper, also pointed in his welcoming speech that Turkey is becoming a country of immigration while Europe is debating its future and Turkey’s membership is still pending. The legislative changes and changes to citizenship and asylum regulations in Turkey were discussed by a number of researchers and scholars. Although there is still a long way to go, Turkey is seemingly improving and harmonising its legislative frameworks with those of the European Union. For example, Professor Kemal Kirisci (Bogazici University), a keynote speaker at the conference, argued that Turkey’s draft asylum policy document was a result of Europeanisation, but with significant influence from the European Court of Human Rights and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The role of language in identity formation has also found room within multiculturalism debates.
10th European Academy of Design Conference: Crafting the Future International conference report by Dr Noemi Sadowska and Dominic Laffy It was Gothenburg in spring time when we, with our colleague Rebecca Taylor, attended the 10th European Academy of Design conference: Crafting the Future, hosted by the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts at the University of Gothenburg. In the three days of the conference we presented our two papers and listened to a host of other speakers, inspiring our imagination and enticing us with research ideas. The European Academy of Design was formed in 1994 and since then has organised bi-annual conferences to bring together researchers from all over the world to contribute to the development of, and research in, the discipline of design. With its international reputation now well established, the conference is the key event in Europe for those in design management. We have represented Regent’s at the last two events in Aberdeen, Scotland (2009) and Porto, Portugal (2011) and have done a fair amount to raise the profile of the University amongst this community, with previous papers highlighting the links between design thinking and strategic thinking in global management education.
The two plenary sessions provided authoritative scholarship and posed questions over some conventional and new avenues of research in migration studies. Professor Tariq Modood (University of Bristol) drew attention to multiculturalism and the challenges across Europe. Discussing potential new directions in migration research, Professor Jeffrey Cohen (Ohio State University) posed questions about the impact of migration on migrants and return migrants’ well-being, while also highlighting the continuums of internal and international migrations and the role of non-movers in the migration process. He questioned the discourses about ‘home’ and ‘migrants’. This world-class event drew upon a large scholarly network.
The Gothenburg conference invited researchers and practitioners to contribute to conversations on the role of design and designers in crafting our futures. It boasted keynote speakers such as Mary Jo Hatch, a leading thinker in the fields
of organisation theory and corporate branding; Clive Dilnot, Professor of Design Studies at Parsons School of Design in New York (one of our partner institutions), and Simonetta Carbonaro, an expert in consumer psychology, strategic marketing and design management.
On the other hand, Rebecca and Noemi reflected on the pedagogy required for global business and design management to thrive in a consensual learning environment. In particular, following designers from their native design environments in search of non-native environments can offer insights into applied pedagogy in both business and design education. The paper explored how experiencing the value of design management in practice can assist the business degree learner to overcome pre-conceived boundaries created in their native business environment and reconstruct new boundaries in order to define a new native environment. It concluded with the insight that crafting the education of design in non-native design environments requires not simply acknowledging the transitional influence that design management expertise can have on business management learners, but also that there is a need for an on-going reflective process which questions the relationship between practice and education and is crucial in making the learning process meaningful.
In response to the theme of the conference on crafting the future, all the presenters were asked to consider: ‘How can the specific knowledge of designers be brought forward, articulated, made visible and be understood and used in contexts like innovation, business development and social change?’ (EAD, 2013). As design and strategy academics located in the Faculty of Business & Management, we thought we had a lot to say!
In recent years, there has been a call for meaningful reinvention of both design and business education so that the business world can realise the true value of design thinking. In recent years, there has been a call for meaningful reinvention of both design and business education so that the business world can realise the true value of design thinking. At the 2009 EAD conference in Aberdeen, we presented a paper arguing that such change does not have to be a radical overhaul of the educational system in business and design but, rather, a more disruptive process from within. Thus, in 2013 in Gothenburg we argued that innovation can provide a common platform for both business and design education to exchange tools and methodologies. To support our argument we presented an investigation into the impact of designing an artefact by business students in the process of innovation as part of their ability to generate new ideas, empathise with users and reflect on process. We concluded that the inclusion of designing processes required in creating an artefact not only acts as a generator of new learning experiences for business students, but can be significantly disruptive to the way students study innovation in a business school environment, leading to a much better process of exploration and discovery.
Both papers were very well received, opening discussions with colleagues from different institutions as to the role of current business education and in particular the impact that design management has on preparing graduates for crafting their own futures. It also made us appreciate the unique position of design management as a subject area at Regent’s University and the opportunities this opens up in research and pedagogy: lessons that we will continue to feed back into the development of our BA (Hons) Global Management programme. The conference has also rejuvenated us, highlighting a range of possible outputs, both within Regent’s as working-paper publications and externally in media such as design journals. We also attracted interest from young researchers from ImaginationLancaster, a research lab at Lancaster University, who are looking to explore design education in non-design environments. So watch this space …
those dealing with labour matters, insight into the need to be more proactive rather than reactionary.
The Lagos Industrial Relations conference presented a platform to disseminate some of the findings from my doctoral research and get feedback on working titles aimed at journal article publication. The paper focused on the impact of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) on human resource management practice in Nigeria. It was considered a timely paper, given the influx of FDI into emerging economies since the global recession began. The paper revealed, to the dismay of many, that FDI in Nigeria had risen from about $11 billion in 2009 to $25 billion in 2012. Although this issue sparked interesting debate, the main concern of the paper was the implications of FDI for human resource management practice, which in some instances failed International Labour Organisation standards. The paper presented examples of instances where recruitment, termination of employment contracts, discipline, hours of work, conditions of work and remuneration/wages fall below international standards. The paper discussed how management prerogatives are employed to the detriment of employees and good human resource management practice. It also revealed how government agencies responsible for implementing good work practice frustrate attempts by labour unions to seek redress for workers because of the perceived importance of FDI to the economy.
International Labour and Employment, Industrial Relations Association African Regional Congress and the Lagos Industrial Relations Conference International conference report by Dr Michael Oyelere In the recent past, a number of conferences have been organised in the field of industrial relations within the African context and the globe at large. Prominent among these conferences were the 6th International Industrial Relations Association African Regional Congress, Nigeria and the Lagos Industrial Relations Conference. These conferences brought together academics from across the African continent and a range of thought-provoking papers were presented.
The feedback from this conference has been very useful to my continuing research and teaching. It has helped me in structuring one of the papers I am currently working towards submitting for journal publication. The working title for the proposed paper is â€˜The Implications of Financial Crisis and Tsunami on HRM Practices in Nigeria: Case of the Banking Sector of the Economyâ€™. Interestingly, one of the MA students I supervised has decided to write her thesis on the management of relationships and motivation of employees at Guarantee Trust Bank of Nigeria. I am hopeful that the link created during the process of data collection for this study will provide the opportunity for further research into this area.
One unique future of the conference was that it brought together key actors in industrial relations â€“ employers, employees, government representatives and civil society activists under the same roof and on the platform with academics. Most of the papers delivered by unionist and civil liberty activists were based on practice and the reality of events in the working life of employees across the African continent. The International Labour and Employment, Industrial Relations Association African Regional Congress was organised in response to a growing need to develop and exchange knowledge in the field of industrial relations, at a continent level, and provide African academics and practitioners with a forum to meet their counterparts from other parts of the world. It gives government agencies, especially
The importance of this conference cannot be overstated. Aside from the opportunity to receive feedback on my work and the camaraderie I developed with young and accomplished academics, it served as a springboard for collaboration and developing new ideas for research and teaching practice.
