Profile

Research expertise

The general theme of my research is organizational communication, considered as an organizer and component of groups. Since this way of looking at communication itself calls for more detailed explanation, a first part of my research is theoretical in nature. I attempt to clarify the premises and concepts essential for an understanding of the constitutive dimensions of communication that in turn can explain the evolving, plural and hybrid realities that increasingly go into shaping contemporary organizations.

To complement this approach, I am also pursuing a program of empirical research that over the years has led me to many organizational and institutional fields. This second aspect of my research is driven by a growing interest in the communication issues and challenges raised by collaboration between various stakeholders, be it in “pluralist” organizations or in groups attempting to formulate or inform public policy. I am especially interested in the strategies by which the players and the groups, as part of such collaboration, describe and integrate their personal experiences and their frequently implicit local logic and knowledge, in their attempts to give a voice and legitimacy to their always specific relations with reality and their environment.
