The purpose of this colloquium is to provide interested doctoral students and emerging scholars with an introduction to historical approaches in entrepreneurship research and an opportunity to receive developmental feedback on work-in-progress. Our aim is to support the development of historical research on entrepreneurship and to build a community of scholars interested in the topic.
The purpose of this workshop is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on work-in-progress related to historical approaches to entrepreneurship and strategy, broadly construed. Our aim is to support the development of historical research on entrepreneurship for publication in leading journals, including for the special issue of Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal (see, http://sej.strategicmanagement.net/conf-dl/sej-historical-approaches-to-entrepreneurship-research.pdf). In addition to providing feedback and suggestions for specific topics, the workshop will address the commonly faced challenges of writing for a double-audience of historians and entrepreneurship/management scholars, engaging entrepreneurship theory and constructs, and identifying the most valuable historical sources and methods in studying entrepreneurial phenomena. We welcome work-in-progress at all stages of development. Interested scholars may submit two types of submissions for discussion: full research papers (8,000 words) or paper ideas (1,000 to 3,000 words).
The Centre for Business History was established in 1999 with the objective to strengthen the historical dimension in CBS research and teaching.
Today, it consists of 13 people (eight tenured staff, five PhDs and Postdocs) that share a keen interest in the way history contributes to a better understanding of society and business. As historians at a business university, we focus on business in society. We do this in the broadest possible sense and with an ideal of openness with respect to theoretical approaches and topics.
The Centre is an integrated part of CBS of its research and teaching infrastructure, and, by its international peers, the Centre is regarded as an experimenting and creative major research environment.
