Reminder: BHC-EBHA Proposal Deadline Approaching

As summer wanes and most readers settle in for the beginning of a new academic year, a reminder that paper proposals for the 2015 BHC-EBHA meeting are due by October 15. 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.” Thomas Piketty, author of Capital in the 21st Century, will deliver the joint meeting's plenary address. The conference also will have several additional plenary sessions, receptions, and organized local activities in Miami; addresses by the BHC and EBHA presidents; lunch meetings for business historians in business schools and for women in business history; a meeting of the Alliance of Centres for Business History in Europe; a breakfast and reception for emerging scholars (graduate students and recent Ph.D.s); membership meetings for the BHC and EBHA; and a closing banquet with presentation of awards by the BHC and the EBHA. This will be the fourth joint meeting of the Business History Conference and the European Business History Association.
    New this year is a "session organizer," which allows potential panel organizers to solicit additional papers. Please consult the call for papers and the meeting website for further meeting details.
