CFP: Asia-Pacific Economic and Business History Conference

National Arboretum, Canberra
The next Asia-Pacific Economic and Business History (APEBH) Conference will take place at the University of New South Wales in Canberra on February 12-14, 2015. The theme will be “Recovery and Rebuilding,” but the organizers are open to proposals for contributions on other topics in economic, social, and business history, as well as to proposals for sessions on particular themes. Researchers across a broad range of disciplines are warmly welcomed. Early career researchers are encouraged to participate.
    The conference organizers are particularly interested in attracting papers that examine developments in countries and regions in the Asia-Pacific region and papers that provide an international comparative perspective. As the call for papers states,
Over the next few years we observe a series of anniversaries: 2015 marks 70 years since the end of World War II and the massive rebuilding required in Europe and Asia- and the first institutional outcomes from Bretton Woods in 1944; 170 years ago, the Irish potato famine began, triggering both calamity in Ireland and migrations that influenced the population of several other nations; and it has been 20 years since the damage caused by the earthquake in Kobe, Japan, necessitated the rebuilding of billions of dollars of infrastructure, while other populations in Asia, Japan, and New Zealand still recover from the more recent tsunamis and earthquakes. . . . Our theme could be approached from a number of perspectives, including those of the cliometrician, the economic historian, the economic theorist, the business historian, the applied economist, as well as the social historian. 
For a fuller discussion of the conference theme, please see the call for papers.
     Abstracts, proposals for sessions, and papers for refereeing or posting on the conference website should be emailed to all members of the program committee.
Paper abstracts of one page may be submitted at any time up to the closing date of November 30, 2014. Session proposals of one page may be submitted up to the same date, outlining the main objectives of the session and potential participants. A selection of papers (subject to the normal reviewing process and standards) may be published in Australian Economic History Review: An Asia-Pacific Journal of Economic, Business and Social History. For more information, please contact Miesje de Vogel – m.devogel@adfa.edu.au – or view the Conference website: http://apebh2015.wordpress.com.

Call for Papers: #BHC2022MexicoCity

Business History in Times of Disruption: Embracing Complexity and Diversity Annual Meeting of the Business History Conference Sheraton Mexico City María Isabel Hotel Ciudad de México, México April 7-9, 2022 [ bookmark the CFP ] The Covid-19 crisis arrived with little warning, disrupting global business and trade. Industries as different as tourism, retail, and manufacturing were plunged into disarray by travel restrictions, broken supply chains, and quarantines. The pandemic also underscored the growing dangers posed by economic inequality and environmental degradation, hinting at a more tumultuous future. We have, it seems, entered into a new age of uncertainty. Informed by these developments, the 2022 Business History Conference will explore the diverse ways that entrepreneurs, firms, and organizations coped with complexity, uncertainty, and disruption over the long run. The Program Committee welcomes individual papers and session proposals that explore this theme. Submissions can a
