Cultural, moral, and personal stories about workplace communication in the United
Journal Of Business Communication, 47(3), 235-265.
This report studies how Caribbean immigrants position themselves and make sense of their overall workplace communication standing. They do so through storytelling a lot of the time. They often adhere to the commonly-cited narrative of the "American Dream" but they also talk about stories that reproduce and "resist" certain specific intercultural workplace communication. They make sense of their experiences through "invocation of different discourses -- race, class, gender and immigration status."

They specifically looked at the communication strategies that were being used as a broader movement to make the management hires of the firm more diverse.

Also known as "mass" culture, popular culture can be considered crude even as
