methodological approaches. The following themes should suggest our interests but are not intended to
restrict imaginative submissions:

• Heritage and the corporate appropriation of the past, through corporate sponsorship and collections, as well as company museums
• Mnemonic practices in the construction of organizational identity, e.g., the socialization of new
members, events to celebrate longstanding or leaving members, as well as organization members
who are forgotten
• The uses of history and narratives in organizations—with respect to power, learning, knowledge
management, culture, and change, as well as resistance to change
• The role of organizations’ historical narratives (who they are and where they come from) in
empowering and constraining strategic and organizational changes, including mergers and
• The role of narratives in organizational learning and knowledge transfer
• Narrative and semantic struggles in organizations—including topics such as how management and
subcultures within and outside of organizations compete for power through narratives
• The interplay of organizational narratives with larger societal narratives or discourses
• The relationship between material artifacts and organizational history and narratives
• The interplay between contextual changes and the need for re-storying organizational narratives
• The dynamic tension between commemoration and history and organizational identity and identification processes in organizations
