Bronwyn Boon is a Lecturer within the Department of Management at the University of Otago. She entered the university system after ten years nursing experience in New Zealand, England and the Sultanate of Oman. While her research and teaching interest in the phenomena of work organisations is varied, it has tended to gravitate around the themes of knowledge, power, and identity – of the subject and of place. More recently, she has extended her research focus into the third sector. The direction of her research has thus depended on the community organisation projects she has been invited to participate in. For example, in 2008 she had some involvement in a project developed by Presbyterian Support Otago looking at poverty and social exclusion. During the 2009-2011 period she has been involved in a multi-stakeholder evaluation project with the Otago Youth Wellness Trust in Dunedin.
