BHC Searching for Doctoral Colloquium Director

The Business History Conference invites expressions of interest from senior scholars who would like to direct the BHC’s Doctoral Colloquium. The BHC sponsors the Colloquium with the generous support of Cambridge University Press.
    The Director works with the Colloquium faculty each year to select ten outstanding dissertation students from an international pool. The Colloquium begins with a dinner, then meets the following day, immediately before the BHC’s annual meeting. The Colloquium provides the students with substantive critiques and discussions from a diverse group of senior scholars, including past and incoming BHC presidents. The Director interacts with the best new scholars in business history and related fields and can help guide their work while leading the selection process, chairing sessions, and maintaining ongoing communications with students and faculty.
     A student liaison, selected from the previous year's Colloquium, assists with administration. The incoming Director will begin a three-year term in 2016 and have the opportunity to follow the 2015 process.

Please contact the current Director, Pamela Laird, at +1 303/556-4497 or pamela.laird@ucdenver.edu, for more information. Send expressions of interest to Laird, Kenneth Lipartito, kipark@fiu.edu, and Roger Horowitz, BHC Secretary/Treasurer, rh@udel.edu, by October 30, 2014.
