  3. 3. Keynote speakers Industrial society – between myths and realities Lars K Christensen, Master in history and philosophy, PhD, curator, senior researcher, National Museum of Denmark In public debate, whether it is about new ways of working, changes in education or just the future in general, industrial society is often used as the general term for everything which is outdated and no longer useful. And not only is the industrial society passé, thank God, but so is any form of idea or organisation belonging to that era. But what was – or is – industrial society? Contemporary denouncements of our industrial past often seems to be informed not so much by historical knowledge, but by popular narratives – such as “Modern times”, Charlie Chaplin’s satirical masterpiece about work at the assembly line. Through a handful of selected examples, Lars K. Christensen is going to answer back to those giving the industrial society such a bad reputation, and question some widespread myths about work in the industrial vs. the post-industrial society. Lars K. Christensen holds a PhD in labour history, and is currently working as a curator and senior researcher at the National Museum of Denmark, Dept. of Modern Danish History. He has written about different aspects of the history of industrial work, as a correlation between technology, organisation and culture. Presently he is doing research in the encounter between American and Danish work cultures at Ford Motor Company’s car- assembly plant in Copenhagen 1919-39. Gunnar Hjelholt: A pioneer within group dynamics and organizational psychology Lector emeritus. Benedicte Madsen, Aarhus University and Associated Professor, Søren Willert, Aalborg University. Key words. Consultancy, boundaries, doing vs. reflecting, individual vs. organization, management vs leadership, organization quality Abstract: On the basis of extended biographical material regarding Danish social psychologist Gunnar Hjelholt (1920-2002) the two authors present a historically oriented case study in professional culture construction. The professional culture thus portrayed is a particular brand of Kurt Lewin-inspired social psychology. From the 1960s and onwards Hjelholt was a key figure in developing this field in Scandinavia and, indeed, in most of Europe. Building partly on a chronological sketch of Hjelholt’s life story presented in Part 1 of a two part article, the present second article part endeavors, not only to paint a picture of Hjelholt as a professional person with a distinctive problem solving style and impact on his surroundings, but also to search for interactions between identified professional themes and Hjelholt’s personal life story as well as his political attitudes broadly conceived. The concept of boundary and the image of the consultant as boundary keeper play important roles as recurrent, unifying metaphors in the text. Among other themes covered the following may be mentioned: doing versus reflecting; what is the good organization?;
  4. 4. individuals and organizations. In an epilogue one overarching aim of the two texts is described as that of opening up for discussion and dialogue concerning organization consultancy in a historical perspective. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Registration Payment must be made in Danish Kroner (DKK) to NAWOP and remitted by bank transfer to Reg. 7449 Account: 1079278.
