Call for proposals: Special issue on Intercultural tensions in organizations in the French journal Communication & Organisation. Abstracts due: 1 March 2020.
Issue editors: Alexander Frame and Mélodine Sommier.
Although a large body of research on intercultural communication has adopted “liquid” approaches to the concept of culture, open to its plurality and endeavoring to go past national scales, these views seem to remain scarcely represented among francophone work conducted within the field of information and communication sciences and focusing on organizations. Volume 58 of the French journal Communication & Organisation will explore this dimension and invites contributions using a critical framework to interculturality with the aim of shedding light on the following issues, from theoretical, empirical and/or methodological viewpoints (the following list is not exhaustive):
-Cultural framing of organizational power struggles
-Cultural and identity dimensions of change management in organizations
-Intersectional approach (Crenshaw 1991) to organizations
-Dealing with cultural diversity and identities in organizations
-Scales to examine culture (Desjeux 2002)
-Critical intercultural methodology in organizational communication
Please note that articles must be written in French.
