This book brings together a selection of papers originally presented at the
fifth conference on Discourse, Communication and the Enterprise (DICOEN V)
held in Milan in September 2009, and mainly focuses on the relevance of
discourse and communication to the world of business and organizations as
seen from a variety of disciplines (linguistics, communication studies,
management studies, sociology, marketing). What unites the contributions is
the discursive framework they adopt for the analysis of corporate
communication, looking at it as a situated activity in a broadly
constructionist paradigm. The various sections are organized along an
internal-to-external-communication gradient, starting from the analysis of
communication within a company's ordinary operational activities and moving
gradually towards types of discourse that are specifically aimed at
communication to the public at large, including their representation in the
media. The picture that emerges is a good approximation to an accurate and
updated snapshot of the state of the art in research and expertise in the
area of corporate and institutional communication.
