    The dynamics of path dependence on the individual, organizational and the field levels: MoDo, the Kempe family and the Swedish pulp and paper industry 1873–19902016In: Management & Organizational History, ISSN 1744-9359, E-ISSN 1744-9367, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 189-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Path dependence is a promising and increasingly popular perspectivefor analysing long-term historical developments in firms, industriesor referring to other units of analysis. A central assumption is thatpaths can narrow down as a result of self-reinforcing processesthat eventually result in a lock-in that is difficult, if at all possible, toreverse. Typically, path dependence is investigated relating to onepath on a specific unit of analysis, e.g. an organization. The presentarticle explores how different paths on different levels of analysis caninfluence each other. Empirically, we use the long-term developmentof the Swedish pulp and paper company MoDo as the focal level ofanalysis. The organizational level paths are then related to paths onthe field level of the Swedish pulp and paper industry and to pathsrepresented by individual owner-managers’ ways of thinking. Weconceptualize the dynamic interplay between paths by elaboratingon processes of path-spreading, path-breaking, path-convergenceand path-divergence.

    Building American entrepreneurs: male commercial selves and the road to success in the US 1873-19142005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis investigates the origins of the American entrepreneur, what popularly has been called the self-made man. It traces the building of the self-made man as a commercial ideal self, leading to the narratives of US entrepreneurship and the road to ‘success’.

    With the demands and opportunities that grew out of the US move from mercantilism to capitalism, model male commercial self behaviour surreptitiously split into two sides during the 19th century. The idealised side comprised a rhetoric of hard work, self-improvement and thrift, whereas the economic/pragmatic side embraced evolutionary theory and laissez faire. American society in general held on to idealised narratives of the self-made man and failed to expose the destructive side, which was to form the economic/pragmatic self.

    In the analyses of literary texts emerging between 1873-1914 in the US, the thesis mainly focuses on the narration of the masculine achiever, or the self-made man. American realist and naturalist authors were certainly part of the American post-1865 bourgeois, professional culture, and they also witnessed the professionalisation of literature. However, in the distribution of notions of idealised self, the binary link between destruction and creation, prevalent in the economic/pragmatic side of male commercial selves, is not recognised by realist authors. Further, it is primarily in Theodore Dreiser’s fiction that the boundaries between these two aspects of late 19th century male selves are psychologised and, in effect, rendered meaningless. Whilst realist texts build characters that exercise responsibility and choice, naturalist fiction more successfully targets the destructive side of the economic/pragmatic self.

    The Morgans and the Textualization of Familiar Knowledge: Managing Stories in Family Business2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This paper approaches issues of business history and organizational textual networks from a narrative perspective. Through narrative strategy analysis, it probes the dialectics between ‘text and context’, between historical events, historical images and narratives, which all are at play when it comes to building certain histories. This paper is particularly interested in how narrative crises are handled in the firm – how is organization narrative crisis re-membered, managed and compartmentalized and how is it read/re-read? In addition, the text will trace the origin of effective discursive formations in the Morgan family business, and how these formations were turned into core strategies and beliefs.
