Diego Coraiola, PhD




Dr. Coraiola is Assistant Professor of Management at the Social Sciences department of the Augustana Faculty, University of Alberta. He holds a Master's and PhD in Management. Before coming to Augustana he worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Victoria. He was twice awarded (2016, 2018) the John F. Mee Award for Best Paper by the Management History Division of the Academy of Management. His work has been published in journals such as Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Business Ethics, and Business History.


Dr. Coraiola's research centers around the idea of collective and entrepreneurial action, i.e. how people and organizations come together to accomplish things in the world. He is particularly interested in understanding the affordances of time and temporality (e.g. past, present, future) to social and organizational change. In a five-year project funded by SSHRC he is looking at the ways in which managers and organizations mobilize the past to generate innovation and promote change. In another two-year SSHRC-funded project he is analyzing the influence of donors and board members on the management of performing arts organizations.
