*Call for Papers: Stories in social **organisation*

Social organization relies, among others, on accounts of action, involving
the use of social categories and vocabularies of motive (Mills, 1940) to
portray meaningful characters engaged in intelligible missions. Stories are
often used in accounts, offering a valuable form for rendering experience
intelligible.

We invite contributions that explore the use of stories for social
organization, at multiple levels and in various settings (De Fina &
Georgakopoulou, 2012).

Some of the research questions that may guide reflections include, without
being limited to, the following:

-                 How are stories produced in conversation? How do speakers
organize talk sequentially to mark the delivery of stories (Jefferson,
1978; Stokoe & Edwards, 2006), and how do they respond to storytelling?

-                 What types of actions can be accomplished through story
formatted sequences and what are their affordances compared to other
formatting options (Sidnell, 2010)?

-                 How can we analyze stories by taking into account the
social interaction in which their authors are involved (Norrick, 2007)? How
are ‘small stories’ (Georgakopoulou, 2006, 2007) designed for situated
exchanges, and what are their interactional effects?

-                 How are stories used in organizational settings
(Blazkova, 2011)? How are stories resources for concerted action in
organizations, portraying types of members, or actions that are possible,
impossible, Quixotescue, or heroic?

-                 How is storytelling learned, and how is it adapted to
various stages and settings of life (Bruner, 1990)? How do adults tell
stories to children, and how do children tell stories to adults? How is
storytelling institutionally organized – in courtrooms, in hospitals, in
schools, at workplaces?

-                 How are selves sustained through storytelling (Dennett,
1992)?

-                 How are stories used for identity making (Schwalbe &
Mason-Schrock, 1996)  and display, including gender or age performances
(West & Zimmerman, 1987; Laz, 1998) ?
