The European Business History Association (EBHA) will hold its next annual congress in Utrecht, The Netherlands, on August 21-23, 2014, in cooperation with Utrecht University and the Netherlands Economic History Archive. The theme will be "Comparative Business History: Contrasting Regions, Sectors, and Centuries." In the call for papers, organizers "encourage participants to take radically different perspectives and take a long-term view in comparing business activities across different periods of time, to compare similarities and differences, and to reflect about their meaning."

A paper proposal should include a title and an abstract of no more than 400 words plus a brief CV of the author.
