Unplugged - Book Reviews Special Forum: Around the Communicative Constitution of Organizations perspective
The fourth work in the series Perspectives on Process Organization Studies is linked to the annual International Symposium on Process Organization Studies (June 2012). This collection is devoted to voices that claim that organizations have to be explored as processes in the making (Hernes, 2007 ; Langley & Tsoukas, 2010). François Cooren, Eero Vaara, Ann Langley, and M@n@gement 2015, vol. 18(4): 321-328 1.‘In his latest book, Cooren (2015) explains how we can differentiate between Discourse with a “D” as relatively durable, and institutionalized, focusing on repetition, and reproduction (textual modality), and discourse with a “d”, as erratic, grounded and local which focuses on the eventful character of conversation and interaction (conversational modality) (see, in particular, pp. 4−10). Haridimos Tsoukas invite us to articulate organizational process research studies with various theoretical discursive perspectives, using the fruitful metaphor of work.
