CfP: Organizing: a Matter of Language, Discourse or Communication?

Orgheads with a inclination towards French organizational communication head over to the recently published CfP of the Journal Science de la Société. Its planned special issue deals with “Organizing: a Matter of Language, Discourse or Communication?” and is edited by Bertrand Faure, Daniel Robichaud and Jean-Lois Darreon.

“SdS calls for manuscripts that address fundamental questions like these through theoretical/conceptual essays and/or empirical studies. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Epistemological and ontological foundations of so-called “constitutive” approaches to communication, discourse, and organization;
  • Theoretical approaches and propositions dealing with the constitutive role of discourse and communication (through performativity, narrative construction, transformative texts, etc.);
  • Methodological approaches for the empirical analysis of discursive materials and interactions that allow us to investigate their organizing properties;
  • The contribution of such approaches to our understanding of managerial issues, such as organizational learning, knowledge management, change, leadership, globalization, strategy, or inter-organizational collaboration, among others.”

Sounds rather fitting for the CCO and OaC community! You’ll have until December 1st 2011 to hand in your 8,000 words paper in English or French.
