Abstract

In their review of organizational discourse research, Grant and Iedema (2005) distinguish between two traditions: organizational discourse studies and organizational discourse analysis. The former is rooted in management and organization theory, the latter derives from work in theoretical and applied linguistics. While both traditions share an interest in the complexities of institutional life and in the application of discourse analysis to grasp those complexities, the authors note a lack of cross-fertilization between the two traditions. Acting on this observation, Grant and Iedema map the scientific conversations that are taking place in the organizational discourse studies literature.
