Presentation

I am associated professor at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy. My research focuses on the interconnection between legitimacy, institutions, and nationalism. I am particularly focused on the ways that organizations and actors appropriate narratives about national collectives as a way to legitimize practices and business models.

My research focuses on three main areas:

Uses of history: I am interested in the ways organizations and companies have used and appropriated the past in order to increase legitimacy, facilitate change and build their brands.

Nationalism and monetary history: In particular how the legitimacy of currencies and central banks relates to national identity.

Maritime history and the historical, narrative construction of maritime and seafaring nations.

I am member of the editorial board of Kulturstudier – a Danish journal of ethnography and history.

Primary research areas
  • Uses of history in organizations
  • Maritime history
  • Brand- and corporate heritage
  • Financial and monetary history
  • National identity and nationalism
