Additional Book Details

"Reworking Gender is a remarkable analysis of the intersections of discourse, gender, and organizing that not only addresses contemporary metatheoretical concerns but also illuminates these issues with archival and interview data. . . . Reworking Gender systematically lays out arguments for the importance of work in our field, for communication′s connections with and potential contributions to related disciplines, and for possible ways in which researchers can continue to challenge boundaries between presumably incommensurable discourses. Without a doubt, Reworking Gender will prove to be a landmark book in feminist, critical-cultural, organization studies, and organizational communication theorizing."


--Patrice M. Buzzanell, Purdue University



Reworking Gender: A Feminist Communicology of Organization examines the place of gender and feminist scholarship in contemporary critical organization studies. Departing from the common view of gender as a specialized branch of organization scholarship, authors Dennis K. Mumby and Karen Lee Ashcraft reposition feminism in a communication-centered model that integrates recent developments in feminist, critical, and postmodern organizational studies. Linking theory to practical projects, the authors address many of the complex and often contradictory concerns of critical organizational scholarship, including issues of discourse, subjectivity, power, race, and class.


In a compelling and timely fashion, this important volume explores

Gendered organization studies in the wake of the discursive turn
The dynamic relationship between gender and organization
The social construction of gendered work identities
The intersection of gender, race, sexuality, and class
The dialectical relation of power and resistance

With its interdisciplinary approach, Reworking Gender: A Feminist Communicology of Organization will be of significant interest to scholars and graduate students in such fields as organizational communication, management and organization studies, sociology, and gender studies.
