Workshop: Business and Neoliberalism in the Nordics
Place: Hotel Nyborg Strand in Denmark
What happens to neoliberalism if we look at it from the perspective of business history and business actors? How did business interest organizations and individual business agents act in the age of neoliberalism in the Nordic countries? How was discourse changed in this period? What did they do to protect their interests? What narratives were crafted, and what strategies were followed?
“Neoliberalism in the Nordics” has a business history dimension, and with this workshop we intend to explore this dimension and take up the questions above based on ongoing empirical work in the project. The discussions are continued in a more international seminar in August 2022, which is co-organized with the Global History of Capitalism project in Oxford.
Convener: Jeppe Nevers, Professor of Modern History and Director of the Center for Maritime and Business History at the University of Southern Denmark.
