CFP: CEBH April Workshop on “Sources for Economic and Business History”

The Centre for Economic and Business History at the University of Nottingham will hold a two-day workshop on April 18-19, 2013, aimed at postgraduates and early career researchers working in the fields of economic and business history. The theme is "Perspectives on Sources for Economic and Business History." The organizers explain:
Researchers in these areas work in a wide range of disciplines and departments such as History, Economics, Geography and Business Schools. They also think on a wide range of themes such as commercial networks, finance, transport, trade, the economy, investment; the list is potentially endless. This workshop is designed to bring researchers in these seemingly disparate areas together in a supportive and friendly environment via the prism of sources. . . . Delegates will be asked to consider certain issues with relation to their own research, thereby encouraging them to be reflective about their sources as well as learning from each other.
Proposals of 500 words should be sent by February 15, 2013, to Emily Buchnea at ahxeb@exmail.nottingham.ac.uk. Please see the call for papers for additional information.
