Centre for Narratological Studies (CNS)

The current topic is counter-narratives in and around organizations. In November 2014 the center hosted a seminar with outset in this topic with Timothy Kuhn and David Boje as keynote speakers.

Counter-narratives in and around organizations

Dominant narratives about ‘who we are as an organization’ are often crafted by management and strategically communicated internally and externally to the organization’s stakeholders. However, counter-narratives may contest or negotiate such dominant narratives, and thereby either create tensions among differing understandings of identity, values, vision and mission, or make already-existing tensions salient. Counter-narratives can thus be destabilizing forces for organizations (a threat that has been increasing along with the changing media landscape), but can also have productive potential for restabilization. A key delivery of Center for Narratological Studies is therefore to expand the potential of counter-narrative research in order to identify counter-narrative as a productive resource for organizational change/development.

Currently we are working on the following publications:

Publications:
Fortælling i virksomhedens tjeneste
Redigeret af Marianne Wolff Lundholt

Bogen sætter fortællingen i fokus: Hvad er storytelling? Hvad er en fortælling? Hvordan anvendes storytelling helt konkret? Og hvad vil det sige at anvende storytelling som et ledelsesredskab? Fortællingen er til stede overalt i den daglige samtale mellem mennesker. Derfor er det af afgørende betydning, hvordan den bliver brugt som redskab i virksomhedernes og organisationernes kommunikation.
