What is the impact of rhetorical history on employees? We address this question by interviewing 29 workers in two organizations. Our critical interpretation of the findings suggests that managers willfully craft historical narratives to regulate workers’ identity and, ultimately, advance the organization’s agenda.

Project (1)
The Time Research Community was born out of the burgeoning interest in researching time and temporality in organizations. We aim to establish and maintain a platform for exchange, discussion, and development on time and organization by bringing together scholars from several areas of research and teaching, including organization studies, entrepreneurship, innovation studies, business history, strategy, management and leadership and technology studies. We would like to encourage novel and exciting studies of the role of time, moving beyond the current reification of “clock time” to understanding time and temporality as key to understanding how emergence, continuity and change of any organizational actors or form takes place in the flow of time. In particular, we will encourage activities being developed, such as: - Paper presentations and track organizing at prestigious academic conferences, - Seminar series and workshops, - Reading groups, and - Networking.
