￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Today’s sub-plenary “Between Past and Present – History in Organization and Organizing” at EGOS 2017 in Copenhagen brought together leading scholars in History and Organization Studies to discuss recent research on time and history.
The three keynote speakers Stephanie Decker, Roy Suddaby and Anders Ravn Sorensen illustrated the plurality in both the conceptualization of organizational time and in how history is researched. The talks triggered a lively debate on how history matters, to whom it matters, and which (often implicit) theories of history shape organizational research.
Chair: Mads Mordhorst
Stephanie Decker – Making sense of the Past: History vs. memory
Roy Suddaby – Institutional Memory as a Dynamic Capability
Anders Ravn Sorensen – Uses of history in action: CBS’ anniversary
