CFP: Association of Business Historians 2015

The Association of Business Historians (ABH) will hold its 23rd annual conference on July 3-4, 2015, at the University of Exeter Business School's Streatham campus. The conference theme will be "Business and the Periphery," exploring the boundaries of business history. The conference committee will interpret this theme broadly to welcome paper and session proposals that address historical themes relating, but not limited, to business operating on economic, financial, geographical, social, political, religious, technological, legal, regulatory and other peripheries. The conference will feature a roundtable on "Business History after the Research Excellence Framework (REF)."
    The Tony Slaven Doctoral Workshop will precede the conference on July 2-3, 2015, and will be subject to a separate call, as will the Coleman Prize for the best Ph.D. thesis on business history completed on a British subject or at a British university.
   Each individual paper proposal should include a short abstract, a list of 3 to 5 key words, and a brief CV of the presenter. Proposals for research tracks should include a cover letter containing a session title and the rationale for the research track. The organizers also welcome research papers on any topic related to business history outside of the conference theme.
     Questions and proposals should be directed to the local organizer, Mark Billings, at abh2015@exeter.ac.uk. The deadline for submissions is February 27, 2015. Submissions may also be sent by post to: Mark Billings, University of Exeter Business School, Streatham Court,, Rennes Drive, Exeter EX4 4PU, United Kingdom.
     For more information, please consult the full call for papers on the ABH website.
