CFP: SSHA Proposals Due February 15

The Social Science History Association (SSHA) will hold its annual meeting on November 17-20, 2011, in Boston, Massachusetts. The theme this year is "Generation to Generation." The participation of graduate students and recent Ph.D.s, as well as more-established scholars, from a wide range of disciplines and departments is encouraged. The call for papers states:
The 2011 Program Committee encourages panel proposals examining exchanges between generations across time and space. Every social system is characterized by flows of services, goods, and ideas between parents and children/old and young at individual, community, and national scales. How has the transmission of wealth, knowledge, and culture changed? What are the modes and rhythms of exchange between generations? How are generational exchanges mediated and modified by institutions and the state? How are hierarchies of gender and age linked to generational succession? How do the time-specific experiences of generations (cohorts) shape their health, values, and politics? The SSHA community is invited to examine the transition between generations as the framework of social life and the incarnation of historical change.
The usual broad range of sessions proposed by participants and networks is also welcome.  Paper, panel, or poster proposals for the 2011 should be submitted electronically at http://conference.ssha.org/. Submissions of complete sessions are preferred, though individual paper proposals are permitted.  The submission deadline is February 15, 2011.

The SSHA program is developed through networks of people interested in particular topics. Current networks, with their representatives' e-mail and web addresses are listed on the SSHA website. Economics network member Evan Roberts recently sent a message to H-Business outlining the interests identified by his network, which should be read by those interested in submitting a proposal.

Business History in Times of Disruption: Embracing Complexity and Diversity Annual Meeting of the Business History Conference Sheraton Mexico City María Isabel Hotel Ciudad de México, México April 7-9, 2022 [ bookmark the CFP ] The Covid-19 crisis arrived with little warning, disrupting global business and trade. Industries as different as tourism, retail, and manufacturing were plunged into disarray by travel restrictions, broken supply chains, and quarantines. The pandemic also underscored the growing dangers posed by economic inequality and environmental degradation, hinting at a more tumultuous future. We have, it seems, entered into a new age of uncertainty. Informed by these developments, the 2022 Business History Conference will explore the diverse ways that entrepreneurs, firms, and organizations coped with complexity, uncertainty, and disruption over the long run. The Program Committee welcomes individual papers and session proposals that explore this theme. Submissions can a
