Doctoral Colloquium at 2011 BHC Meeting

We want to remind students writing dissertations in business history and their advisors about the Oxford Journals Doctoral Colloquium in Business History, which will be held in conjunction with the 2011 BHC annual meeting in St. Louis. This prestigious workshop, sponsored by the BHC and generously funded by the Journals Division of Oxford University Press, will take place Wednesday evening, 30 March 2011, and all day Thursday, 31 March 2011. The Colloquium offers a small group of graduate students an opportunity to work intensively on their dissertations with distinguished Business History Conference-affiliated scholars, including at least two BHC officers. The Colloquium is limited to ten students. Participants will discuss dissertation proposals, relevant literatures and research strategies, and employment opportunities in business history. The Colloquium is intended for doctoral candidates in the early stages of their dissertation projects. If you are interested in being considered for the Colloquium, please submit
  • a statement of interest
  • a CV
  • a preliminary or final dissertation prospectus of 10-15 pages
  • a letter of support from your dissertation supervisor (or prospective supervisor)
