Action and agency in dialogue : passion, incarnation and ventriloquism by François Cooren( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What happens when people communicate or dialogue with each other? This is the daunting question that this book proposes to address by starting from a controversial hypothesis: What if human interactants were not the only ones to be considered, paraphrasing Austin (1962), as "doing things with words"? That is, what if other "things" could also be granted the status of agents in a dialogical situation? Action and Agency in Dialogue: Passion, incarnation, and ventriloquism proposes to explore this unique hypothesis by mobilizing metaphorically the notion of ventriloquism. According to this ventri

This study pertains to the field of studies on Textual Genetics and Enunciation Linguistics and is aimed at analyzing the forms of representation of verbal erasures occurring during the writing process of a story made up by two Brazilian pupils (7 years old). Having assumed "haphazardness" and "dialogism" as the central phenomena of this process, I relate verbal erasure to the points of tension that emerge during the dialogal text established by the pupils as they discuss and write the story. The haphazardness and dialogism typical of the enunciative action are related to the writers' returns over what was said, and the verbal erasure is testimony of the subjective positions that singularize both the writing process and their school text. Keywords: school; dialogue; writing; narrative; haphazardness; dialogism; erasure
Dialogic ethics by Ronald C Arnett( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dialogic Ethics offers an impressionistic picture of the diversity of perspectives on this topic. Daily we witness local, regional, national, and international disputes, each propelled by contention over what is and should be the good propelling communicative direction and action. Communication ethics understood as an answer to problems often creates them. If we understand communication ethics as a good protected and promoted by a given set of communicators, we can understand how acts of colonialism and totalitarianism could move forward, legitimized by the assumption that 'I am right.' This volume eschews such a presupposition, recognizing that we live in a time of narrative and virtue contention. We dwell in an era where the one answer is more often dangerous than correct"--
Organization and organizing : materiality, agency, and discourse( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely collection addresses central issues in organizational communication theory on the nature of organizing and organization. The unique strength of this volume is its contribution to the conception of materiality, agency, and discourse in current theorizing and research on the constitution of organizations. It addresses such questions as: To what extent should the materiality of texts and artifacts be accounted for in a process view of organization? What part does materiality play in the process by which organizations achieve continuity in time and space? In what sense do artifacts perform a role in human communication and interaction and in the constitution of organization? What are the voices and entities participating in the emergence and stabilization of organizational reality? The work represents scholarship going on in various parts of the world, and features contributions that overcome traditional conceptions of the nature of organizing by addressing in specific ways the difficult issues of the performative character of agency; materiality as the basis of the iterability of communication and continuity of organizations; and discourse as both textuality and interaction. The contributions laid out in this book also pay tribute to the work of the organizational communication theorist James R. Taylor, who developed a view of organization as deeply rooted in communication and language. Contributors extend and challenge Taylor’s communicative view by tackling issues and assumptions left implicit in his work

Language and communication at work : discourse, narrativity, and organizing( )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the growing influence of discursive and narrative perspectives on organizing, organizational scholars are focusing increasing attention on the constitutive role that language and communication play in organizational processes. This view conceptualizes language and communication as bringing organization into being in every instant and is therefore inherently sympathetic to a process perspective. However, our understanding of the role of language in unfolding organizational processes and as a part of organizational action is still limited. This volume brings together empirical and/or conceptual contributions from leading scholars in organization and communication to develop understanding of language and communication as constitutive of work, and also analyze how language and communication actually work to achieve influence in the context of organizations. It aims to elucidate the role language, communication, and narrativity play as part of strategic and institutional work in and around organizational phenomena. In keeping with the preceding volumes in the Perspectives on Process Organization Studies series, this collection demonstrates why we need to start thinking processually and offers a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to studying these 'works in process' that we call organizations, companies, businesses, institutions, communities, associations, or NGOs
Communication as organizing : empirical and theoretical explorations in the dynamic of text and conversation by François Cooren( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book unites multiple reflections on the role of language under a single rubric: the organizing role of communication. Stemming from Jim Taylor's earlier work, The Emergent Organization: Communication as Its Site and Surface (LEA, 2000), the volume editors present a communicational answer to the question, "what is an organization?" through contributions from an international set of scholars and researchers. The chapter authors synthesize various lines of research on constituting organizations through communication, describing their explorations of the relation between language, human practice, and the constitution of organizational forms. Each chapter develops a dimension of the central theme, showing how such concepts as agency, identity, sensemaking, narrative and account may be put to work in discursive analysis to develop effective research into organizing processes. The contributions employ concrete examples to show how the theoretical concepts can be employed to develop effective research
Organizational discourse : communication and constitution by François Cooren( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2021 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we study organizations from a discursive perspective? What are the characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of each perspective on organizational discourse? To what extent do discourse and communication constitute the organizational world? This accessible book addresses these questions by showing how classical organizational themes, objects and questions can be illuminated from various discursive perspectives. Six approaches are presented and explained: semiotics, rhetoric, speech act theory, conversation analysis/ethnomethodology, narrative analysis, and critical discourse analysis
Interacting and organizing : analyses of a management meeting by François Cooren( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interacting and Organizing: Analyses of a Management Meeting provides a case study, shedding new light onto the functioning of an actual corporate board of directors. Presenting analyses of management meetings shown in the 1974 documentary film, Corporation: After Mr. Sam, the film chronicles the discussion and communication processes as a company considers how to replace its president, serving as a unique opportunity for analysis of a real-world organizational discourse." "The volume's original structure and object of analysis contribute to a relatively new research agenda, focusing on organizational interactions to better understand how organizations work. It is appropriate for use in advanced courses and seminars in organizational communication, management, organizational behavior, and social psychology. With its distinctive approach to studying the film's content, it will be invaluable to scholars, researchers, and graduate students in organizational communication, LSL, and management."--Jacket
Methodological and ontological principles of observation and analysis : following and analyzing things and beings in our everyday world by François Cooren( )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prés. de l'éd.: In our daily experiences, we feel, perceive, designate, invoke or comment on a plurality of beings: people, artifacts, technologies, institutions, projects, animals, divinities, emotions, cultures, ideologies or opinions that are part of our world. While these beings are all part of our world, they present various forms of existence. Echoing recent developments in existential anthropology, Communication as Constitutive of Organization (CCO) research, and Actor Network Theory, here scholars from a variety of disciplines discuss how they study the types of beings that have been at the core of their respective research. Reflecting on the specific mode of existence, presence and action of the being they follow, they reveal the methodological innovations they deploy in order to analyze excerpts of field notes, filmed interactions, conversations, pictures, newspapers, narratives, etc
Authority and power in social interaction : methods and analysis by Nicolas Bencherki( )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authority and Power in Social Interaction explores methods of analyzing authority and power in the minutiae of interaction. Drawing on the expertise of a diverse international team of organizational communication and language and social interaction scholars, this book suggests reverting the perspective that notions of authority and power constrain human activity, to determine how people (re)create them through conversation and other joint action. Confronting several perspectives within each chapter, the book offers a broad range of approaches to each theme: how and when to bring "context" into the analysis, formal authority, institutions, bodies and materiality, immateriality, and third parties. A core belief of this volume is that authority and power are not looming over human activity; rather, we weave together the constraints that we mutually impose on each other. Observing the details of how this joint process takes place may at once better account for how authority and power emerge and impact our actions, and provide guidelines on how to resist them. This book will be an important reference for students and scholars in language and social interaction, organizational communication, as well as those interested in an alternative take on issues of authority and power. It will also find resonance among those interested in managements studies, public administration and other disciplines interested in situations where authority is a crucial issue

Manières de faire parler : interaction et ventriloquie by François Cooren( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: (Qu’est-ce) qui parle ou s’exprime lorsqu’on s’engage dans une interaction, un dialogue ou une conversation ? C’est cette curieuse question que ce livre propose d’explorer en partant d’une hypothèse quelque peu controversée : Et si les êtres humains n’étaient pas les seuls à « faire des choses avec des mots », pour paraphraser la célèbre formule d’Austin (1962/1970) ? Autrement dit, se peut-t-il que d’autres « êtres » puissent se voir attribuer le statut d’acteur ou d’agent en situation dialogique ? Manières de faire parler. Interaction et ventriloquie défend cette thèse en mobilisant métaphoriquement la notion de ventriloquie, conçue comme l’art de "faire parler" quelque chose ou quelqu’un d’autre. Selon une perspective ventriloque, nos interactions et conversations ne sont jamais purement locales, mais bien dislocales, disloquées, voire extatiques. Autrement dit, elles mobilisent constamment des figures (collectifs, principes, valeurs, émotions, faits, etc.) qui nous font parler et que l’on fait parler dans nos tours de parole et nos comportements, nous plaçant simultanément dans les rôles du ventriloque et du pantin. Ce livre, qui développe les dimensions analytiques, pratiques, critiques et éthiques de ce positionnement théorique, intéressera toute personne qui désire se pencher, d’une manière non dogmatique, sur l’étude des interactions et du dialogue, que ce soit dans les champs de la communication, de l’anthropologie, de la linguistique, de la sociologie, du management ou de la philosophie

Discursivity, relationality and materiality in the life of the organisation : communication perspectives by Colleen E Mills( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of organisational communication has been rapidly transforming in the wake of the linguistic and discursive turns that have been sweeping across the social sciences since the mid-eighties. These 'turns' have prompted organisational communication scholars to look more closely at how they think about communication and its relationship to the organisation and the process of organizing. What has emerged from these reflections is a perspective that proposes communication is not merely something that happens in organisations but is the heart of organizing and therefore actually constitutes the organisation. This perspective, which embraces several sub-threads, is now commonly referred to as the CCO (Communication as Constitutive of Organisation) perspective. This is itself evolving as scholars come to realize that organizing does not just occur at the discursive level. It is inextricably coupled to the material and relational aspects of work - the discourse mutually constitutes relationships between human and non-human bodies that combine to create what we encounter when we participate in organisational life. This book examines the way these three dimensions combine to create organisational outcomes. In doing so, it advances CCO and sociomateriality scholarship and contributes to new ways of thinking about strategy and practice. The series of empirical studies should interest the widely interdisciplinary audience that seeks to understand work, organizing and management. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Communication Research and Practice journal -- Provided by the publisher
