I’ve proposed Organizational Authoethnography an edited collection that combines the two topics I am most interested in: organizational communication and autoethnography. Organizations are not simply entities, but systems of meaning. As such they are sites of cultural practices and performances, and of domination and resistance and struggle. Working at the intersection of organizational studies and autoethnography, this book explores the ability of autoethnographic and personal narrative approaches to generate important, innovative, and empowering understandings of difference, discourses, and identities, while attending to the various powerful dynamics that are at play in organizations. Autoethnography utilizes personal experiences and stories to, among other goals, comment on, critique and imagine more liberating cultural beliefs and practices. Together, autoethnography and organizational research transform personal stories into critical interventions, about power, of difference, and for organizational change. Organizational autoethnographic stories show organizationally embedded life in action.
What I am looking for are critical autoethnographies that gender, queer, race, and class organizational life. What kinds?

What I am not looking for are autoethnographies on academe.
So if you are interested, shoot me an email at email@example.com and we’ll chat.
