Handbook of Research on Management and Organizational History

Edited by Kyle Bruce

Emerging from what was a somewhat staid sub-discipline, there is currently a battle for the soul of Management and Organizational History (MOH), at the centre of which is a widespread concern that much recent work has been more about how one should or might do history rather than actually doing historical work. If ever there was a time for a new volume on MOH, this is certainly it.

Chapter 12: Feminist critical historiography: undoing history – a conceptual model

Kristin S. Williams


This chapter explores a new conceptual model called feminist critical historiography. The approach fuses critical discourse analysis and antenarrative theme analysis to aid in the critical study of history from a feminist perspective. The author outlines the approach in detail and concludes with a small case study, which illustrates how the method can be employed. Feminist critical historiography demonstrates how a feminist poststructural lens and a collaborative methodology can capture the role of discourses and narratives (macro/micro and institutional/personal) in concealing a more fragmented view of history. The approach openly contests taken for granted accounts and truth statements while also revealing what is hidden from view (and how) in management history, including the lost contributions of female leaders and the gendered and limited scope of the field of management and organizational studies.
