From 9/2017 – 7/2018:

Bregje van Eekelen’s book project on brainstorms traces the history of creative thinking in military and industrial settings (1935–1965). It asks how the concept of “creativity” emerged in response to military and managerial rationalities, the standardization/disciplining of work, and the incorporation of social scientists in corporate America.
