The DARK SIDE OF COMMUNICATION
2ND INTERNATIONAL AND INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON DISCOURSE AND COMMUNICATION IN PROFESSIONAL CONTEXTS
14 – 16 August 2019
AALBORG UNIVERSITY, DENMARK
We have seen an upsurge in research into organizational communication, PR communication, corporate communication, branding communication etc. Whereas this voluminous strand of research has delved ever deeper into the instrumental nature of organizational/corporate communication, little attention, outside organizational discourse studies, has been devoted to examining what happens when we allow organizational/corporate communication to constitute the reality in which we live. This conference explores our understanding of what dark side communication activities ‘are’ and what they ‘do’ in or with reference to organizational contexts.
Keynote speakers are:
Professor Dennis Mumby, USA
Professor David Boje, USA
Assoc. Professor Charlotte Simonsson, Sweden
Dr. Erika Darics, UK
The conference is hosted by the Department of Culture and Global Studies, Aalborg University.
