Centre for Organizational Practice and Communication


Located at the Department of Language and Communication, OPC is a research centre dedicated to the study of practice and communication in organizations. Our research concentrates on work-related communication and practice, often situated in wider societal and cultural contexts. We study interactions and social practice in both public and private organizations through a combination of approaches including social-semiotics, multimodality, narratology, socio-materiality, and practice theory.

In addition to ongoing research projects, seminars, meetings and publications, the centre is dedicated to the dissemination of research-based perspectives on practice and communication, and ongoing collaboration with public and private organizations in Denmark and abroad.

We focus on various aspects of organizational practice and communication within the following areas:

  • Organizational culture
  • Organizational identity and change
  • Globalization
  • Strategizing
