Dr. Krone is an organizational communication scholar whose research highlights the ways in which various forms of organizing enable and constrain participation and the development of voice Recent projects take up this issue as it arises in a local community consensus-building process, in accounts of intercultural conflict between Chinese and American managers of Sino-American joint ventures, and in the organizing practices of transnational feminist networks. Together these projects share a concern for the creative potential of communication to work more meaningfully with socially complex situations. Dr. Krone is past chair of the Organizational Communication Division of the National Communication Association, and an active participant in the International Communication Association and the annual Aspen Conference on Engaged Communication Scholarship. She also serves as program faculty with UNL's Women's & Gender Studies program and its transnational feminist working group.
Dr. Krone has previously taught a course entitled Organizing Social Change. Students developed a special project/paper focused specifically on organizations or organizing processes related to gendered issues.
