Visiting Associate Professor of Business Administration
Professor Anteby's research looks at how individuals relate to their work, their occupations, and the organizations they belong to. He examines more specifically how the practices people engage in at work help them sustain their chosen cultures or identities. In doing so, his research contributes to a better understanding of how these cultures and identities come to be and manifest themselves.
Of particular interest to him are issues of moral cultures and identities. This focus explains why he tends to study socially disapproved behaviors, such as factory workers' illegal use of company property and the commerce in human cadavers for medical education or research. Field settings for these and other inquiries have included aeronautics factory workshops, airport security teams, higher education institutions, and whole-body donation programs.
Prior to coming to the Yale School of Management, Professor Anteby taught at the Harvard Business School. He also previously worked as a consultant focusing on labor issues in France. He now serves on the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ Youth to ensure that school cultures allow all youth to thrive.
