Research

research overview

  • My research focuses on the communicative processes of inter-organizational collaboration, with a particular emphasis on the nonprofit sector and cross-sector organizing. These areas intersect to form a robust line of research, with multiple entry points and overlapping levels of inquiry: studying the nonprofit sector quickly brings up issues of inter-organizational collaboration; inter-organizational collaboration highlights the importance of communication processes; and a distinctively communicative approach to human organizing calls attention to how various stakeholders interact with each other and make collaborative decisions. My overall interest is in how collaboration gets done communicatively, and what the implications are for theory and practice. Currently three main themes dominate my research: stakeholder representation, tensions of organizing, and communicative constitution.
