PhD course in Narratives and Discourse Analysis

The PhD course in Narratives and Discourse Analysis engages with narratives methods and its relations to discourse analysis. The history of narratives and storytelling are related to management and organization and then merged with new ethical perspectives on sustainability and materiality. Critical perspectives on power in organizations and how it impacts identities are parts of this discussion.

The course engages with different methods for critical narrative and storytelling inquiry: deconstruction, ethnography, auto-ethnography, gaia-graphy and other (ante)narrative methods. We will practice how to write about stories in organizations and how newer performative methods have implications for thinking while theorizing and conceptualizing.

The course will engage students in discussions and group work. The students will practice writing before and after the course. The students are expected to write an essay where they relate narrative and discourse analysis to their PhD study.

It is a generic, 5 ECTS course. The course admits maximum 20 students. Apply now!!! Do not miss your chance!!!

The course will take place in-person only on May 16-20, 2022 and be hosted by TBRP of the Aalborg University Business School.
