Angela N. Gist (Ph.D., University of Missouri) is Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Kansas with an expertise in organizational communication. She is an interpretive critical scholar that largely researches issues of social mobility and power. Her program of research frequently combines three areas of interest: social class, social identity, and organizational culture. Her most recent research analyzed the experiences of the unemployed across social class groups while they managed joblessness through organizational memberships. She also examines the identity work and negotiation of individuals’ experiences as they cope with the absence of work and stigma. Oxford University Press has published her work on organizational self-efficacy in Oxford Bibliographies Online. Dr. Gist teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in organizational communication, organizational culture, and qualitative methods.
