The dark side of organizational socialization

The dark side of organizational socialization

The Communicating Organizations Research Group at Aalborg University is host for the 3rd International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Discourse and Communication in Professional Contexts.


11.11.2021 kl. 08.00 - 12.11.2021 kl. 15.00


Inspired by Diane Vaughan’s phrase “the dark side of organizations,” the conference offers 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. Thus, we invite those with organizational discourse and communication perspectives to submit abstracts exploring a wide range of topics related to organizational socialization processes.
