    Event Program (Zoom link will be available here on event date)




    This symposium will assess whether the popularity of organizational discourse analysis is in decline, what problem this decline might raise, and what can be done to address it. Panelists will offer insights into how discourse analysis can address concerns about parochialism and how it can engage materiality and socio-materiality to address social constructivist and critical realist concerns simultaneously. It will also explore multi-modal and mixed method approaches and show how these methods could contribute to organizational discourse analysis. In addition, panelists will explore validity criteria for evaluating discourse work and ways to integrate distinct theoretical perspectives.
