Reminder: Paper Proposals for 2011 BHC Meeting Due October 1

Proposals for papers and full sessions for the 2011 Business History Conference meeting, which will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, from March 31 to April 2, 2011, are due by October 1, 2010. 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; for further information, please read the full call for papers.
