First, we move beyond the first 3 waves of Grounded Theory (GT) because, "There is no Ground and no Theory"! Before Extinction is Boje's newest book, a way to develop a FOURTH WAVE GT to deconstrcut globalization BEFORE it brings about our extinction.

4 Waves of Grounded Theory by D. M. Boje 2018

The purpose of the STORYTELLING SEMINAR is to go beyond first three waves of Grounded Theory (GT) to the 'Fourth Wave' of ontology approaches that ground in our Being-in-the-world, a world coming to an end because we are sleep walking, denying the hidden costs of globalization.

3 Storytelling Paradigms that interplay in the Real by DM Boje 2018

The Storytelling Research Seminar will focus on the interplay of three paradigms: (1) Western Ways of Knowing (WWOK) of Narrative-Counternarrative oppositions, (2) Indigenous Ways of Knowing (IWOK), and the Antenarrative Processes of Becoming & Forecaring.

Here is a map of the concepts. My work is on Indigenous Ways of Knowing (IWORK) that inform worker-driven CSR. It have been looking at extinction events and the grand challenges that are implicated in hidden costs of globalization.  My work is in analyzing global and corporate narratives and the counternarratives of less developed nations and their peoples.
