Power, Hierarchy, and Change: The Stories of a Catholic Parish Staff.
Meidlinger, Katherine Burnett; Coopman, Stephanie J.
Management Communication Quarterly, v13 n4 p567-625 May 2000
Examines stories told by the members of a Roman Catholic parish staff to each other in informal settings, investigating ways they reinforced or challenged the organization's power structure and reflected changes in cultural traditions. Shows that much story content reinforced the church's hierarchy, and occasionally reflected changes in the larger culture and maintenance of the status quo within the organization. (SR)
