CFP: Centre for Business History “Uses of the Past” Workshop

The Centre for Business History at Copenhagen Business School will host a paper development workshop (PDW) for scholars conducting research on "the uses of history and memory in organizations and organizing" on Wednesday, December 9, 2015. The organizers welcome applications from scholars of all backgrounds conducting research on the question of why, how, and with what effects the past is used by managers and organizations. The goal of the PDW is, in part, to support the development of research and foster dialogue among scholars who may be interested in submitting papers to the Special Issue of Organization Studies devoted to the same topic, though neither application nor attendance at the workshop is required for full consideration of papers submitted for the special issue. More information about the Special Issue can be found here.
Limited funds may be available on a competitive basis for applicants who are unable to get funding from their home institutions.
To apply, those interested should email an abstract of between 300 and 500 words describing their research, along with a cv or bio to one the PDW organizers below. Applications should be sent by October 13, 2015 to receive full consideration.
