While much has been written on the transition of organizational life into the New Work Order (NWO) and the effects this has had on employees in language-centered economic spaces, few studies have attempted to tease out how these NWO-expectations have affected less language-centered workplaces.

We selected testimonies by two Belgian concentration camp… read more | Article

Maneuvering between the individual and the social dimensions of narratives in a poor man’s discursive negotiation of stigma. Narrative Inquiry 22:1, pp. 122–1452012.

The discursive norms to… read more | Article
Standardized relational pairs in interviews with former slaves: Construction, negotiation and alignment. Narrative Inquiry 21:1, pp. 44–672011.
We investigate the use of standardized relational pairs (SRPs) and the way narrators align with these in two interviews with former slaves which were conducted in the 1940s. In particular, we look at stories in which slaves are compared to animals, thus not only invoking the SRP master/slave, but… read more | Article
A good story or a good identity? The reportability of stories interfering with the construction of a morally acceptable identity. Narrative Inquiry 19:1, pp. 69–902009.
Big stories are typically characterized by a high degree of reflexivity, which results in the construction of a fairly coherent — or even “rehearsed” — identity that is acceptable from a contemporary viewpoint. This article focuses on the life story of a former SS Leibstandarte soldier elicited by… read more | Article
Co-constructing identities in speeches: How the construction of an ‘other’ identity is defining for the ‘self’ identity and vice versa. Pragmatics 18:3, pp. 491–5092008.
