Abstract:

'Discourse, Technology and Change' presents a detailed analysis of
discourses that initiate, enable, and stabilise social change in
organizational contexts. The book examines the function of written
discourse within this setting to examine the dynamic relationships between
writing, technology, and socio-cultural change. Focusing on everyday texts
used to create technical and social change, the book offers a detailed
study of the intersections of discourse, technology and persuasion
illustrated through an empirical case study of technological change in an
academic institution. The book seriously engages the claim that texts
dually construct and reflect social networks and social action. Working at
both the micro and macro textual level, the book examines the functions of
change discourse providing a framework for understanding how change is
constituted within social networks. This cutting-edge monograph will be of
interest to academics researching discourse analysis and applied linguistics.
