The Centre for Business History at BI invites to a half-day seminar on narratives in (business) history. It will close in on how historians use narratives as their medium; how their narratives relate to other narratives, to existing narratives of their study object or larger national narratives.
The seminar also analyses how firms and organizations use narratives to pursue their interests and discuss how historians and other scholars relate to these narratives.
