Critical and historical perspectives on management
Contact emails: Jeremy Morales and Elena Giovannoni
The Critical and Historical Perspectives Group provides a forum to discuss and develop the work and thinking of those interested in such approaches. The identification of this as a key theme for research reflects a long standing and continuing intellectual commitment at the Royal Holloway University School of Management. The group is deliberately broadly conceived, recognizing the plurality of ways in which ‘critical’ and ‘historical’ research may be conducted, but seeing as its common core the interrogation of established and mainstream approaches to management research. Similarly, members of the group have a wide range of empirical interests upon which they bring to bear critical and/or historical analysis.
The group's past activities are reported here: 2012-13; 2013-14; 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17
