Fall 2014 Workshops of Interest

As the new academic year begins, we again offer a round-up of ongoing workshops, forums, and discussion groups in business and economic history. Please check each website for more detailed information. Some groups, particularly those in non-US universities, may not yet have posted Fall 2014 information; in those cases, a link to the home site or last available listing is included.
