CFPs: Two CHORD Workshops, 2011

The Centre for the History of Retailing and Distribution (CHORD) has issued calls for papers for two workshops to be held in spring 2011 at the University of Wolverhampton.
The first,"Retailing and Institutions, 1400-2000," will meet on March 24, 1011. The term 'institutions' is to be interpreted widely, and includes both institutions established by retailers and institutions that sought to influence, control, limit, or to do business with retailers.  Proposals are due by January 28, 2011.

The second, "Distribution: Historical Perspectives, 1400-2000," devoted to the exploration of commercial networks and distribution, will be held on April 7, 2011.

All methodological and disciplinary perspectives are welcome, as are papers based on any geographical area. Proposals, including a title and 200-word abstract, should be sent to L.Ugolini@wlv.ac.uk by the deadlines indicated.
