CFP: ABH Tony Slaven Doctoral Workshop in Business History

The Association of Business Historians will hold its second Tony Slaven Doctoral Training Workshop on June 27-28, 2013, immediately preceding the 2013 ABH annual conference at the University of Central Lancashire; participants will also be welcome to attend the conference.
   The workshop presents an opportunity for doctoral students to discuss their work with other research students in business history-related disciplines in an informal and supportive environment. Students at any stage of their doctoral career are encouraged to attend. In addition to providing new researchers with an opportunity to discuss their work with other research students in a related discipline, the workshop will also include a session related to career development. Business history doctoral work is spread over a large number of departments and institutions, and by bringing students from throughout the UK together for an annual workshop, we hope to strengthen links between students working on business history and related topics. Students will present for around 20-30 minutes, with roughly the same time for discussion. Participants will also be expected to act as discussant for one of the other papers being presented.
   A limited number of Tony Slaven scholarships are available to contribute toward the travel, accommodation, and registration costs of attending the doctoral workshop and ABH conference. These will be awarded competitively prior to the workshop.
   Students interested in attending the workshop should send their application to Dr. Sheryllynne Haggerty, Department of History, School of Humanities, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK, or via email to sheryllynne.haggerty@nottingham.ac.uk.  For full consideration, applications should be submitted prior to April 12, 2013.
   For full details, including application requirements, please consult the complete call for papers; questions may be addressed to Sheryllynne Haggerty.
