HBS June Conference Program and Registration Available

The Business History Initiative at Harvard Business School is hosting a conference on June 13-14, 2014: "Business History in Africa, Asia, and Latin America: Integrating Course Development and New Research." The aim of the conference is to
leverage existing expertise about the field from countries where it is more established, as well as the experience of other disciplines, including world history and international business. Topics to be discussed include how to integrate the latest research into teaching materials; new and innovative pedagogical methods, including web-based learning and the use of oral history; the availability of primary sources; and the different interests and requirements of students in business schools, history departments, and in graduate programs.
The program has now been posted.
     Registration is available on-line, with a deadline of May 31, 2014. The conference is open to educators, graduate students, and other academics with an interest in the subject. For additional details, please see the conference website.
