A proposition for the reconception of the superintendency

Reconsidering traditional and nontraditional discourse

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this article, small samples of the traditional discourse on communication found in superintendency texts and nontraditional narratives from women superintendents were examined through a feminist postmodern lens to determine whether a reconsideration of superintendency discourse could provide ideas that support a reconception of the superintendence. This analysis revealed new discourse about superintendence communication that contrasts with traditional superintendency discourse and that makes convincing contributions to the reconception of the superintendency as advanced by several researchers. The conclusion makes this contrast clear by summarizing the article's (a) ideas that inhibit the reconception of the superintendence and (b) ideas that advance the reconception of the superintendency.
