2011 BHC Meeting Call for Papers Published

At its recent annual meeting, the BHC published the call for papers for the 2011 meeting, which will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, from March 31 to April 2. As the call for papers explains,
our 2011 annual meeting takes "Knowledge" as its theme. Knowledge embraces, but is not confined to, the human capital generated and sustained by entrepreneurs, middle managers, and technical professionals; the tacit knowledge of clerks and factory workers; the cultural messages broadcast by advertisers and public relations professionals; the learning paths of institutions that contribute to the generation, circulation, and preservation of knowledge; the intellectual history of constructs like the "knowledge economy"; and the relationship of knowledge-generating economic institutions to government, the professions, and communications networks.
The Program Chair for 2011 is Mark R. Wilson of the University of North Carolina, Charlotte; the deadline for proposals is October 1, 2010. For further information, please read the full call for papers.
