CFP: Economic and Business Historical Society, 2011

Proposals are now being accepted for the 36th annual conference of the Economic and Business Historical Society (EBHS), to be held at the Hyatt on Capitol Square in Columbus, Ohio. Proposals for presentations on any aspect of economic or business history are welcome. The EBHS conference offers participants an opportunity for intellectual interchange within a collegial interdisciplinary group of scholars from around the world (a typical mix of participants includes around half from economics departments and half from history/economic history departments).This year’s keynote speaker will be Richard Steckel (Ohio State University).

Papers presented at the conference may be submitted for consideration by the EBHS’s peer-reviewed journal, Essays in Economic and Business History, edited by Janice Traflet (Bucknell University).

The society seeks proposals for individual papers and/or for panel sessions. Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief curriculum vita, postal and email addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. Panel proposals should also suggest a title and a panel chair. Submissions are welcome from graduate students and non-academic affiliates.

Proposals may be submitted online using the form on the EBHS page, by email to:, or via mail to: Ranjit Dighe, 2011 EBHS Program Chair, Department of Economics, Mahar Hall, SUNY-Oswego, Oswego, NY 13126. The deadline for submission of proposals is January 10, 2011.
