Ida Lunde

Ida Lunde Jørgensen is a cultural and organizational scholar at the Centre for Business History. She is interested in the way society influences organizations and organizations seek to influence society through the symbolic realm.

Her research explores things through a historical lens and often draws on institutional perspectives and cultural studies.  

Her most recent work focuses, in particular, on two topics:

  1. The role of national museums in Denmark and Sweden. Specifically, I study how national museums curate historical collections of art and cultural heritage amid heated debates about immigration and national identity in the Nordic countries.
  1. The historical and ongoing role of companies in the production and negotiation of racial symbols that ascribe value and meaning to the people portrayed.

She is on the editorial board of Kulturstudier – a Danish journal of ethnography and history.

She has previously been a visiting research student at London School of Economics’ School of Government, a visiting fellow at Institute for Contemporary History at Södertörn University and was recently invited to join the SCANCOR-Weatherhead Partnership at Harvard University as a visiting scholar.

Her research is funded by ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World), NordForsk.
