ESRC seminars

Historicising the theory and practice of organizational analysis


This ESRC-sponsored seminar series provides a platform for international research on historical analysis of organizations, heritage and reflective societies. All events revolve around three interlinked themes: archiving and archival research as resources for organizational analysis, organizational remembering as an alternative theoretical approach, and emerging methodologies that challenge organizational histories. Leading international scholars will discuss current research initiatives. We also invite new contributions for the seminars and seek to promote a number of special issues associated with the seminars as well as the European Group of Organization Studies track in organizational history and our partners at the Business History Initiative of Copenhagen Business School.

We already hosted three events in 2015, and are planning to host another three in 2016. For further information, see the events page.

For further enquiries please contact the organising team: Professor Stephanie Decker (Aston Business School), Professor Michael Rowlinson (Queen Mary University London), Professor John Hassard (Manchester Business School).
