Conference call: The Dark Side of Communication

Conference call: The Dark Side of Communication

2nd International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Discourse and Communication in Professional Contexts


14.08.2019 - 16.08.2019


We have seen an upsurge in research into organizational communication, PR communication, corporate communication, branding communication etc. Whereas this voluminous strand of research has delved ever deeper into the instrumental nature of organizational/corporate communication, little attention, outside organizational discourse studies, has been devoted to examining what happens when we allow organizational/corporate communication to constitute the reality in which we live. This conference explores our understanding of what dark side communication activities ‘are’ and what they ‘do’ in or with reference to organizational contexts.   

Keynote speakers are:

Professor Dennis Mumby, USA

Professor David Boje, USA

Assoc. Professor Charlotte Simonsson, Sweden

Dr. Erika Darics, UK 


Department of Culture and Global Studies, Aalborg University


CREATE, Rendsburggade 14, 9000 Aalborg
