Patrizia Zanoni and Maddy Janssens

The chapter discusses how critical discourse analysis (CDA) can be used, both as a theory and as a method, to investigate diversity in contemporary organizations critically. Drawing on our own (joint) scholarly work, we illustrate how Norman Fairclough’s threefold understanding of discourse as text, discursive practice and social practice can be operationalized in empirical research to capture the complex articulation of social identities (for example, gender, ethnicity, disability and age) and power dynamics. This approach has specifically helped us to appreciate how discourses of difference are indissolubly related to social practices and how they constitute the object of discursive struggles with both symbolic and material effects. We conclude by delineating some possibilities for future critical diversity scholarship drawing on the CDA tradition.

The Sustainability of Cultural Diversity

Nations, Cities and Organizations

Edited by Maddy Janssens, Myriam Bechtoldt, Arie de Ruijter, Dino Pinello, Giovanni Prarolo and Vanja M.K. Stenius

This engaging book addresses the question of how diverse communities, whether in a nation, city or organization, can live together and prosper whilst retaining and enjoying their cultural differences. This is a particularly pertinent issue in the context of the modern world where mass migration and immigration are pervasive global phenomena.
