Bio

Scotti Edward Branton II (MSW, Florida State University; MA, Western Kentucky University) researches the ordering and disordering practices of communication to understand how we both organize and disorganize, with a particular focus on the constitutive role of paradoxes, contradictions and tensions. Theoretically, he draws on post-structural and post-human theories to explore several organizational phenomena. Specifically, his research focuses on the communicative practices of diversity and inclusion, organizational change, sexual harassment, and organizational crises. Alongside his research area, Scotti has presented his work at several national conferences including the National Communication Association, European Group of Organization Studies (EGOS) and Organization for the study of Communication, Language, and Gender. Additionally, he has served as a research assistant for Communication, Culture and Critique and currently works as an editorial assistant for the Journal of Applied Communication Research. Scotti serves as the Vice President of Association of Communication Graduate Students (ACGS) and as the advisor for the Intercollegiate Communication Organization of Mizzou (ICOM).
