2021-11-17

ComOrg, the Communicating Organizations Research group at Aalborg University (https://www.en.culture.aau.dk/research/research-groups/ComOrg/), invites scholars to submit papers to the 2022 themed edition of CLAW.  Inspired by Diane Vaughan’s phrase “the dark side of organizations,” the themed edition intends to offer specific attention on the mundane, hidden, and often taken-for-granted aspects of organizational socialization as well as the potential consequences of these organizing practices.  In sum, we invite scholars with a vested research interest in organizational discourse and communication perspectives on "the dark side of organizational socialization" to submit papers that critically explore a wide range of topics related to organizational socialization processes. Submission deadline is May 1st 2022; following the rigorous peer-review processs, publication is scheduled for the autumn of 2022.

About us

Communication and Language at Work is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal focusing on (communicative and discursive) practices relating to organizations. With a view to disciplines, the journal invites contributions navigating sociological and philosophical considerations of communication, knowledge, agency, and organization. Empirically, our authors investigate subjects in diverse research areas, from communication to critical management studies and education, psychology, political science, and intercultural studies. We publish research investigating the phenomenon of work with various foci: theoretical considerations on organizational behavior are as welcome as empirical case studies on agent groups at the workplace, and studies on the embeddedness of work organizations in communicative webs of culture, politics, economics, and other aspects. Work, here, is meant as an umbrella term for work(places) in and related to private and public organizations, NGOs, and bordering phenomena such as networks of volunteers. Explicitly included is the area of research into higher education organizations. We take a special interest in issues of communicative construction of group belonging, cultural othering, and processes of change, such as internationalization or digitalization, but the themes are by no means limited to these fields of study.

Peer-review

Upon successful peer-review, we publish original research papers, both conceptual and empirical. We further aim at representing the tradition of scholarly knowledge construction through dialogue and process. Consequently, we also publish essays, interviews, group discussion protocols, outstanding speeches or key notes, as well as research notes on either project results or on ongoing projects.

CLAW is published under a Creative Commons license and is a joint project initiated and edited by Peter Kastberg, PhD, Full Professor at Aalborg University.
