Language in the Workplace: from Austria to Zanzibar

Dr Bernadette Vine, Wellington Language in the Workplace Project

9 Oct, 4-5pm, MYLT 101 

How do people use humour and enact leadership at work? Discover the world of workplace discourse research and celebrate the publication of “Introducing Language in the Workplace”

The central role of language in the enactment of professional identity has resulted in a burgeoning field of research. In this seminar, I highlight key topics and issues from workplace discourse research over the last three decades. These include how people use humour and how they manage complaints and conflict in the workplace. The presentation closes by considering some applications of workplace research for training and communication skills development.

This research survey draws on my new textbook, and we invite you to help celebrate the publication of this book: Introducing Language in the Workplace (CUP, 2020)
