2019 Special Focus - The New Story of Organizing

Storytelling or the strategic use of narratives has emerged as a dominant form of influence in many social spheres, including in the areas of organizations and organizing. This conference theme invites presenters to analyze and demonstrate any aspect of effective storytelling related to organizational contexts. Presenters may concentrate on dominant narratives or counter-narratives. Presenters may also argue for and demonstrate forms of discourse that challenge the narrative paradigm.
