"This book gathers the stories told by men and women in order to convey a banal, but sometimes overlooked, fact: the contents of stories depend on the voice telling them, and the experience recounted in first person differs according to the gender of the narrator."--Jacket
Gender, symbolism and organizational cultures by Silvia Gherardi( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 386 libraries worldwide
The author discusses her focus upon the relations between gender, power and culture in organizations, and upon the need to come to grips with the pervasive, elusive and ambiguous nature of gender in work settings, including through allusive, metaphoric analyses. She introduces two key metaphors for the book. The first is of the sexual contract, which centres on the sexuality of organizations and 'static' gender difference. The second, of the alchemic wedding, highlights a plurality of cultural models of femaleness and woman/work relationships, and processes of dynamic difference, transformation and transcendence. Gender, Symbolism and Organizational Cultures will be essential reading for students and all those interested in issues of gender, power and change in organizations, in organizational theory and behaviour, the psychology and sociology of organizations, and women's studies

Practice-based learning in higher education : Jostling cultures by Monica Kennedy( file )
7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 256 libraries worldwide
This book discusses and elaborates on how practice-based pedagogy can effectively co-exist with the practices and interests of academia. In doing so, it lays bare the tensions between learning in workplace practices and the cultures that contribute to the complex relationships required for successful implementation in higher education. It does so in an attempt to resolve an approach within which university students may enjoy the learning inherent in the practice of work whilst pursuing robust higher education qualifications. The contributions here variously explore the epistemologies, structures, politics, histories and rituals that both support and constrain opportunity and success in students? experiences. They illuminate the issues, practices and factors that shape the processes and outcome of educational efforts to integrate experiences in both practice and educational settings, each of which has their own distinct cultures, practice within their communities
How to Conduct a Practice-based Study : Problems and Methods by Silvia Gherardi( Book )
15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
The practice-based approach to the study of work and organizing has been widely adopted in recent years, yet its theoretical and methodological systematization has only just begun. Silvia Gherardi expertly provides an overview on the topics and issues addressed by practice-based studies. By means of a series of examples drawn from the best-known analyses using this approach, the book provides methodological guidance on how to conduct empirical research on practices, and how to interpret them from three perspectives: practices 'from outside', practices 'from inside', and the social effects produced by practices. The distinctive trait of the present book is the presentation of the classic studies that gave rise to practice-based studies and through their analysis the illustration of their problems and methods is presented. Master students, doctoral students and scholars will find plenty of invaluable information in this methodological book. In relation to a lively and wide-ranging debate conducted at the international level, but not yet systematized in its methodological assumptions, the book will also be of interest to those practitioners curious about a view of work as a practical activity which develops within an ecology of social, economic and material relationships
Learning and knowing in practice-based studies by Silvia Gherardi( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
Why is it that so many aspects of organizations are now spoken of as practices? How can organizations be studied within a practice-based approach? How can workable knowledge about them be produced? The authors answer these questions theoretically and through empirical examples. They provide an overview on practice-based studies illustrating their main topics, research methods, and the theoretical reflections that support a non-rationalist and non-cognitivist view of organizations. The book addresses the principal features of practice-based theorizing and its key concepts, then concludes with methodological reflections on the practice-based approach. Written for a university public already in possession of basic notions in organizational studies and intending to conduct analysis of organizing as a social practice, it will also prove essential for master and PhD students as well as organizational scholars designing research within Practice-Based Studies. Including a lively and wide-ranging debate conducted at international level, the book will be of interest to practitioners curious about a view of work as a practical activity that develops within ecology of social, economic and material relationships
