Ordering Work: Blue-Collar Literacy and the Political Nature of Genre.
Winsor, Dorothy A.
Written Communication, v17 n2 p155-84 Apr 2000
Examines how one organizational genre, the work order, functioned to orient different groups so that work could be accomplished, and could be credited within the normal hierarchy of the organization. Implications emphasize the political aspect of genre as a form of social action. Concludes the work orders as a genre both triggered and concealed the work of the blue-collar workers. (NH)
