Abstract As Director of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies at the University of Queensland from 2000–2012, Graeme Turner led one of the longest running research investments in Cultural Studies' history. Holding these threads together, in conjunction with the sheer hard work of Centre affiliates and administrators, was an exemplary management style. Turner's brand of Cultural Studies is defined by an attention to the art and politics of management alongside the customary business of doing research. It is Cultural Studies' lack of engagement with management theory that has made this type of work difficult to appreciate, even while it is just this kind of engagement that is necessary to ensure the survival of the field. Acknowledging the significance of Turner's management politics, its relevance to his broader intellectual project, and its importance for the field of Cultural Studies more broadly, this paper pays tribute to a leader whose career demands a more nuanced vocabulary for institutional work within and outside the university.
