Globus Lecture: The New Problematics of Organizational Communications: Implications for Research and Pedagogy, speaker, Dr. Cynthia Stohl, Distinguished Professor of Communications and Past Director of the Center for Information Technology and Society
This presentation takes as its point of departure two articles (written a decade apart) regarding the state of the study and practice of organizing communication (Mumby & Stohl, 1996; Mumby & Stohl, 2007). Four central problematics – the problematic of voice, rationality, organization, and the organization/society relationship – served as the basis for exploring convergences and divergences among scholarship and pedagogy that are typically identified as organizational communication, managerial communication, corporate communication, business communication, public relations, and other areas that focus on organizational dynamics. Together, these problematics articulated a conception of organizational communication that defined it as both object of study and discipline in a way that was radically different from other fields that study organizational phenomena.
RSVP to Prof. Caryn E. Medved.
