9780748628018: The Handbook of Business Discourse

The Handbook of Business Discourse is the most comprehensive overview of the field to date. It offers an accessible and authoritative introduction to a range of historical, disciplinary, methodological and cultural perspectives on business discourse and addresses many of the pressing issues facing a growing, varied and increasingly international field of research. The collection also illustrates some of the challenges of defining and delimiting a relatively recent and eclectic field of studies, including debates on the very definition of 'business discourse'. Part One includes chapters on the origins, advances and features of business discourse in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. Part Two covers methodological approaches such as mediated communication, corpus linguistics, organisational discourse, multimodality, race and management communication, and rhetorical analysis. Part Three moves on to look at disciplinary perspectives such as sociology, pragmatics, gender studies, intercultural communication, linguistic anthropology and business communication. Part Four looks at cultural perspectives across a range of geographical areas including Spain, Brazil, Japan, Korea, China and Vietnam. The concluding section reflects on future developments in Europe, North America and Asia.

About the Author:

Francesca Bargiela-Chiappini is a senior research fellow in the School of Arts and Humanities at Nottingham Trent University.

Review:

The discourse of business, and about business, is now at the centre of contemporary culture. While many authors offer partial insights into business discourse, Francesca Bargiela-Chiappini has made a heroic effort to collect many such insights together in this impressive Handbook. She has also managed both to discipline the contributors and give free rein to their creativity; an achievement considering the variety of cultures and research fields that they represent. The result is a rich volume that will become indispensable to those students and scholars in social sciences and humanities who are interested in contemporary phenomena. -- Barbara Czarniawska, Professor of Management Studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 'Those researchers interested in understanding and applying the various disciplinary perspectives and approaches used to study discourse in the context of business will not be disappointed by The Handbook of Business Discourse. This much needed and welcome resource, provides an authoritative set of up-to-date contributions from an impressive line-up of distinguished as well as emergent scholars.' -- David Grant, Professor of Organizational Studies, University of Sydney 'Drawing on a remarkably diverse range of disciplines, Francesca Bargiela-Chiappini has courageously addressed the challenge of providing a research and teaching resource for an area which is notoriously difficult to define.' -- Janet Holmes, Victoria University of Wellington Discourse Studies There are no other books on the market which have such a broad scope as The Handbook of Business Discourse. lts great strength lies with its scope and diversity, and with the overall themes it presents, of critique, context, collaboration and intercultural awareness, all of which are relevant to a future in which the field of business discourse research can continue to thrive. In conclusion, this book is thoroughly recommended. It is ideally suited to students and teachers of business communication looking for a thorough reference to the field. Furthermore, academics and experienced researchers searching for synergies between different disciplinary approaches, or for methodologies to complement their own, will also find it invaluable. -- Emma Sweeney, Birkbeck College, University of London Language and Intercultural Communication This handbook provides an essential foundation that integrates communication, globalization, and engagement scholarship from around the world and nicely complements the current discussion of discourse by challenging readers to think anew about the functions, processes, and consequences of discourse theory and practice. The chapters in this handbook redefine, reinterrogate, and reintegrate some of our common understandings of discourse, and in so doing, this handbook leaves the reader with a nuanced, well-rounded, and clear understanding about the trajectory of future research on discourse! Part 1 signals to the reader immediately that it is essential to incorporate global voices consistently into any discussion of business discourse, and this is one of the greatest strengths of this collection. -- Patrice M.
