Centre for Business History

Research Seminar

The Centre for Business History has a weekly seminar series on Tuesdays mornings. We discuss work-in-progress and engage in methodological discussions in our Spotlight seminars. For new ideas on work in history and temporality research, we have a regular History Slam, which also provides an opportunity for new collaborations within and beyond our discipline.

Our first priority for the seminar series are emerging scholars who we support in their development of paper and book projects. Our PhD students, moreover, have several "Work-In-Progress" seminars with internal and external commentators. We also occasionally invite external guests if their topics are a close fit with our interests. We schedule seminars in November for the spring semester and in July for the fall semester. Feel free to reach out if you would like to explore a visit.

I received in-depth reflections on my work and more detailed advice on publishing by experienced editors and authors. - Camilla Ferri, Ca'​ Foscari University of Venice

We regularly devote sessions of the seminar series to methodological questions and have had good discussions of Microhistory and Hermeneutics (Dan Wadhwani), Materiality and Embodiment (Louise Karlskov Skyggebjerg and Martin Djupdræt), Social History / Longue Durée (Alfred Reckendrees) and Uses of the Past (Mads Mordhorst) in recent semesters. Our "History Slam" for discussing paper ideas is popular with both internals and visitors.

At times, we have had the good fortune to combine our seminar with an excursion. In 2022, we enjoyed a spring outing to Aarhus. We visited the Gender Museum, the Occupation Museum, and Den Gamle By, where we had interesting conversations with curators and stakeholders of these institutions. Every fall semester, we join all research groups of our department for an interdisciplinary retreat at Helsingør to discuss our work with management and entrepreneurship scholars, philosophers, political scientists, and legal scholars.

A constructive space for developing both the presenters’ papers and the common cause –– the significant contribution of history to business research and teaching. - Christian Stutz, Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics
