2nd DiO Int’l workshop: abstracts online

21 03 2009

I’m pleased to announce the papers which have made the cut for our second International Workshop on Discourse in Organizations, to be held at the Zebrastraat, September 16-19, 2009. This workshop offers a small-scale, all-plenary interactive forum with a limited number of participants and plenty of time for discussion. In addition, the event will  include an International PhD colloquium to be organized in co-operation with the Association for Business Communication (ABC).

The workshop theme is competence on display, i.e. the various ways in which individuals or groups in organizations discursively present themselves as competent, as having the ability and willingness (possibly including generic knowledge, motive, social role, expertise and skills) to perform tasks or functions on a superior level.

The workshop abstracts are now live, and so are the keynote abstracts. We are pleased to welcome Celia ‘the Chaka Khan of sociolinguistics’ Roberts and Francesca Bargiela. The call for papers is now closed, but if you would like to attend the workshop, you can register here.
