The voices and images from organizations that are magnified through the analyses in this book all shed light on and struggle with the limits of what can be thought, articulated and expressed within the current cultural environment. Coming up against such limits, and struggling with how organizations can be imagined otherwise, is working at the fringes of the current cultural hegemony. Hegemony emerges as a transdisciplinary keyword that can shed light on various empirical sites and theoretical traditions. Stuart Hall explains Antonio Gramsci's concept of hegemony as the 'process by which a historical bloc of social forces is constructed and the ascendancy of that bloc secured'. A 'historical bloc' is tied to class interests, but cannot be reduced to a social class per se. A hegemony needs the collaborative efforts of different social forces and groups to form a bloc that is powerful enough to co-produce its legitimacy.
