Re-integration of History in Strategy Research

Recent special issues in leading management journals that focus on the use of historical methods are a testament to the renewed attention that history is receiving from the management research community. However, despite these promising developments, even though Strategy scholars admit that ‘History Matters,’ there remains significant ambiguity about how scholars can engage with history to produce knowledge that is generally recognized as contributing to the broader field of Strategic Management. What are the next steps? The purpose of this panel is to have leading scholars reflect on the consistent themes in the use of history, highlight novel uses of history in publications, discuss future opportunities that Strategy scholars using history may focus on, and share thoughts on the ongoing role of history in Strategy.
