CFP: EBHS 2015 Conference

La Crosse, Wis. 1873. Geo. H. Ellsbury, del. Milwaukee Lith. & Eng. Co. (Library of Congress)
The next annual conference of the Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) will be held in La Crosse, Wisconsin, on May 28-30, 2015. Proposals for presentations on any aspect of economic or business history are welcome, as are proposals for whole panels. Graduate students and non-academic affiliates are also welcome to submit proposals. According to the call for papers:
The EBHS conference offers participants the opportunity for intellectual interchange with an international, interdisciplinary, and collegial group of scholars (typically about half our participants are from economics departments and half are from history or economic history departments). The EBHS prides itself on its openness to new members and we offer reduced conference fees for graduate students and early career researchers (four years or less since doctorate earned). Our regular registration fees are reasonable, as is the cost of accommodation at the conference venue.
The keynote speaker at the conference dinner will be Professor Jeffrey Williamson, Laird Bell Professor of Economics, Emeritus, Harvard University.
     Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words and contact details, submitted through the EBHS website at www.ebhsoc.org/conference/, or to the program chair by postal mail at Mike Haupert, Department of Economics, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, 1725 State St., La Crosse, WI 54601 USA. The deadline for submission of proposals is February 15, 2015.
