Rethinking Organizational and Managerial Communication from Feminist Perspectives

Edited by:


June 2000 | 352 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book reconsiders organizational and managerial communication theories, research, and practice from a feminist standpoint. It looks at theoretical analyses that reconceptualize and extend boundaries in our thinking about work and organizing processes; presents women's voices through interview excerpts, poems, diary entries, and stories and explores the ways in which these concrete details of ordinary lives represent missing facets of our organizational and managerial communication work; and contains chapters that rewrite organizational and managerial constructs.

About the Contributors

"…a convincing and long overdue demonstration of the value of feminist perspectives for invigorating organizational communication studies." 

Patricia Sotirin
Michigan Technological University

"Buzzanell's edited book has a poststructural sensibility in its emphasis on dialogue, absent voices, and the open-ended, constructed nature of knowledge. . . . In summary, I would recommend this book highly. . . Buzzanell's reader would be a corrective for traditional texts used in communications, Master of Public Administration, and Master of Business Administration programs."
