I’m very pleased that one of my joint-authored article has been published. Thanks again to the great group at EGOS who discussed a much earlier version of our paper in 2014!
Clio in the business school: Historical approaches in strategy, international business and entrepreneurship
On the back of recent and significant new debates on the use of history within business and management studies, we consider the perception of historians as being anti-theory and of having methodological shortcomings; and business and management scholars displaying insufficient attention to historical context and privileging of certain social science methods over others. These are explored through an examination of three subjects: strategy, international business and entrepreneurship. We propose a framework for advancing the use of history within business and management studies more generally through greater understanding of historical perspectives and methodologies.
