Per H. Hansen has won the 2012 Henrietta Larson Article Award for his essay, “Business History: A Cultural and Narrative Approach," which appeared in the Winter 2012 issue of the Business History Review. The award is presented annually by the Harvard Business School to the best article published in the BHR, as selected by its editorial advisory board. Hansen, professor in the Department of Management, Politics, and Philosophy at the Copenhagen Business School, is the current president of the Business History Conference and a council member of the European Business History Association. His primary research areas are financial history, with particular focus on financial and banking crises and modern Danish furniture. He is also interested in entrepreneurship and organizational culture, and identity and change in historical perspective. An earlier article, “Organizational Culture and Organizational Change: A Narrative Analysis of the Transformation of Savings Banks in Denmark, 1965-1990,” won the 2008 Newcomen Prize (now Oxford Journals Article Prize) for the best article published in Enterprise & Society in 2007.
