KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Organising Difference explores the relationships among communication, organising, and difference through three foci: (1) Research, (2) Pedagogy, and (3) Practice.
In Section I-Researching Difference, organisational communication scholars explore a number of ways in which difference can be critically examined as a communicative phenomenon, with the goal being to demonstrate the importance of difference as a construct sensitising device through which the complexities of organisational communication processes can be examined and better understood.
In Section II-Teaching Difference, chapters move beyond teaching diversity in the workplace and instead explore how students can learn to appreciate difference as an endemic feature of work environments as well as organising processes writ large.
In Section III-Practicing Difference, chapters explore difference not simply in terms of workplace diversity initiatives, but examine it more broadly as a communicative mechanism through which organizations enable some possibilities and exclude others.
Contributors represent a Who's Who of both established and emerging scholars in this area, including Stan Deetz, Linda Putnam, Gail Fairhurst, Brenda Allen, Patrice Buzzanell, Karen Ashcraft, Sarah Dempsey, Erika Kirby, Lynn Harter, and William Rawlins.
