Media technologies play a central role in workplace communication and organisational practices. This issue addresses the ways in which the introduction of (new) media technology contributes to reconfiguring organisational practices. We invite scholars to reflect on the ways in which organisation members appropriate and domesticate media in their everyday workplace communication, whether internal or external, and whether in public or commercial domains. Scholars are invited to focus on the latest media technologies or on the role of media of all kinds in new workplace practices. Concrete empirical analyses as well as methodological and theoretical discussions are welcome. We invite contributions from different approaches within media and organisational studies such as – to mention but a few – science and technology studies, actor network theory, multimodal and mediated discourse analysis, interpretive organisational studies, studies of (re)mediation and medium theory.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• new or modified (co)writing and (co)reading practices, as well as other multimodal semiotic practices
• redeployment of time and space affected by remediations of organisational communication, such as the reconfiguration of workplace timescales and the coupling between activities at different timescales
• notions of genre chains, recontextualisation and resemiotisation in order to understand how new media influence the flow of discourse across different sites, modes and media in and around the workplace
• remediation of social relations (organisationally internal and external) in general, and the distribution of resources, different kinds of capitals and power structures in particular
• relations between the introduction of (new) media and the emergence or stabilisation of different forms of professionalism, professional communication and interprofessional communication
