There are regular workshops at conferences that call for greater acknowledgement of the role of history in management research and education. There is also a developing literature in management & organization studies that argues for organization analysts to seek rapprochement with historians and vice versa, often underpinned by critical perspectives. This workshop responds to these frequent calls and this developing literature by bringing together presenters with expertise in historical methods, organization analysis and critical management education to provide a space to contribute to making histories and developing historically-informed teaching. The workshop consists of 30 minutes of presentation, followed by 30 minutes of small group research and teaching development work facilitated by the presenters and organizers. We then conclude with a 30 minute plenary and panel discussion on a) publishing historical work and b) on using history and historical research in critical management education.
