This week, the British Academy of Management (BAM) is hosting a webinar on historical methods, 28 July 2021, 2pm – 4pm, on Zoom. The event is free for BAM members, and £25 for non-members (£15 for doctoral students).
In this webinar we will introduce participants to the basics of historical research methods and focus on how business and management scholars have integrated historical evidence and archival sources in their research. We focus on the elements of historical narrative, critical source interpretation, and how to identify and do research in archives (company archives and public archives).
