It all started in October 2004 in Wageningen. Still a PhD student at the University of Leuven at the time, I was lucky to join a small group of experienced scholars in the field of framing research. Together with Barbara Gray, Roy Lewicki, Linda Putnam, Noelle Aarts, René Bouwen and Cees van Woerkum, we spent a weekend at Hotel 'De Wageningse Berg' to sort out the conceptual confusion among framing researchers. The basis for the 3 by 2 matrix of approaches to framing research was developed there. Now, four years, numerous revisions and a move to Wageningen later, Human Relations has published our article in its February 2009 issue. If you are interested in how people make sense in and of conflicts and negotiations, in the differences and overlaps between cognitive and interactional approaches to framing, or in the potential contributions of embodied cognition or discursive psychology to framing research, then this article might be of use to you.
The final reference is:
