2021 (English)In: Managing Social Responsibility in Universities: Organisational Responses to Sustainability / [ed] Loreta Tauginienė; Raminta Pučėtaitė, London: Palgrave Pivot, 2021, 1, p. 95-116Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter is inspired by Latour’s suggestion that Gaia has taken centre stage in politics. Universities are therefore submitted to a climatic regime which demands responsibility. Inspired by Arendt, this chapter suggests a storytelling framework for teaching sustainability in management education. Storytelling is seen as a means for ‘emplacing’ people in the terrestrial conditions of Gaia. Seven storytelling principles of a terrestrial management education are discussed: Self-formation addresses the need of management becoming a matter of ethical development of the self; problem-oriented learning emphasizes that learning is to be organized around practical problems; multispecies storytelling implies organizing management education with an explicit focus on the biosphere goals; gaiagraphy implies using methods to map relations between nature, society, and organizations; governance implies organizing management as an intersectional practice across different professions; truth-telling is to train management students to appear and speak with frankness and honesty; finally, storytelling requires deep reflexive practices.
