HiMOS virtual seminar will take place on Thursday, November 5th.

HiMOS (https://historymos.wordpress.com/

The seminar builds on the recent efforts to advance historical organization studies (Maclean, Clegg, Suddaby, & Harvey, 2020). The idea is to help open up the black box of practicing historical research.

Our keynote speaker (Ryan Raffaelli, Harvard) will share his experience and insights related to a recently published empirical article. Then, we will workshop papers at an advanced stage, authored by leading and early career scholars. This allows the participants to get hands-on insights into the various ways of doing historical research in management and organization studies.
