|Meeting Description:||Conference Seminar: Changing Discourses, Changing Workplaces: Postmodern Trends in Institutional Communication
Cornelia Ilie, Malmö University, Department of Culture and Society (Sweden)
Giuliana Garzone, University of Milan, Department of Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication (Italy)
In increasingly multicultural and interconnected work environments, members of communities of practice start by applying existing discourse-reinforced conventions, while gradually adjusting and changing them, which leads to a hybridisation of discourse structures and strategies across workplaces and cultures.
The seminar aims to explore effects of the interplay between discourse styles and workplace practices enacted in culture-specific and multicultural institutional or organisational contexts (e.g. business, education, media, politics). A special emphasis will be on metadiscourse and intertextuality in professional discourses, face-to-face and online negotiation of identities, culture-based and cross-cultural attitudes to leadership roles, and stereotypes related to race, gender and class.
