Dr. Dongjing Kang's research lies in the intersection of organizational communication, language and culture, and dialogue in international contexts. Her forthcoming co-authored essay (as lead author), entitled "The Absence in the Past, the Presence in the Making: The Expanding Territory of Organizational Communication in China," to be published in the Chinese Journal of Communication, proposes a culture-centered perspective to examine the territory of organizational communication in China and calls for scholars to build more local-centered frameworks.
