True Storytelling of Globalization in Liquid Modernity (slides for the talk)

These are slides for my opening speech at the cross-disciplinary conference on language and management, knowledge management and HR management which will take place on 23 May, 2018, during the French Management week, organised by the FNEGE (French Foundation for Management Education). French academic associations AGeCSO (research on knowledge management), AGRH (research on human resources) and GEM&L (research on management and language). Can True Storytelling be a way to do bottom-up implementation of UN Sustainability Goals, bere for the 6th Extinction is irreversible?

Flip Over the Triple Bottom Line Iceberg

IWOK stands for Indigenous Ways of Knowing. Mātauranga Māori means Māori Ways of Knowing (MWOK) the environment. Both are about Webworks of Living Stories that are different from Western narrative research methods that reduce the aliveness of living story to form and linear plot structure. Boje will introduce deep layers of living story research using the Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal and its relation to conflict mineral mining after generations of colonization in Democratic Republic of Congo.

I am increasingly concerned about the current state of Globalization Storytelling in what Zygmunt Bauman calls 'Liquid Modernity.' It is a time when Post-Fordism has merged with the worst of Postmodern hyperreality, in a time of Fake News, Fake Presidents, Fake Corporations where getting to 'true storytelling' methodology is all but impossible. We live in a time when racist rhetoric, ethnic prejudice, and climate denial has become nornalized in Western ways of narrative in our academic and political institutions. I think its time to engage in more IWOK and less WWOK of corporate speak, a more critical postmodern paradigm of storytelling.
