CFP: BHC-EBHA Joint Annual Meeting 2015

The 2015 joint meeting of the Business History Conference and the European Business History Association will be held in Miami, Florida, on June 24-27. The theme of the meeting will be “Inequalities: Winners and Losers in Business.” In the call for papers, the Program Committee
challenges business historians of all stripes to historicize the economic, political, cultural, and social processes by which inequality has taken hold, ebbing and flowing over time. Business is central to those processes. The very word "inequality" suggests injustice and unfairness, subjugation and lack of opportunity. But in fact, there are many different inequalities, and their historical significance depends upon how societies have regarded and valued difference. . . . By inviting a broad historical exploration of the many inequalities that affected and have been affected by business, both positively and negatively, the conference hopes to illuminate more clearly the complexities involved in distinguishing winners from losers. 
For more details, please see the full call for papers.The deadline for receipt of all proposals is October 15, 2014.
