Reminder: Deadline Approaching for the 2015 Tony Slaven Doctoral Workshop

The Association of Business Historians (ABH) will hold its fourth Tony Slaven Doctoral Training Workshop on July 2-3, 2015, immediately preceding the 2015 ABH Annual Conference at the University of Exeter Business School. Workshop participants will also be welcome, and indeed, encouraged, to attend the main ABH Annual Conference. Students at any stage of their doctoral career, whether first year or near submitting, are encouraged to attend. In addition to providing new researchers with an opportunity to discuss their work with other research students in a related discipline, the workshop will also include at least one skills-related workshop. According to the Workshop announcement:
Business history doctoral work is spread over a large number of departments and institutions and by bringing students for an annual workshop, we hope to strengthen links between students working on business history and related topics. For the purposes of the workshop 'business history' is therefore interpreted broadly, and it is intended that students in areas such as (but not confined to) the history of international trade, investment, financial history, agricultural history, not for profit organisations, government-industry relations, accounting history, social studies of technology, and labour history will find it of interest. Students undertaking topics with a significant business history related element but in disciplines other than economic and business history are therefore also welcome. We also welcome papers from students researching any era whether, modern, early modern or medieval. 
Students interested in attending the workshop should send their application to Sheryllynne Haggerty, Department of History, School of Humanities, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK; e-mail: The application should be no more than four pages: a one-page CV; one page stating names of the student’s supervisors, the title of the thesis, the university and department where they are registered, the date of commencement of their thesis registration and a two-page abstract of their paper. The deadline for submissions is February 27, 2015.
     Several Tony Slaven scholarships are available, each worth up to £150, to contribute toward the travel, accommodation, and registration costs of attending the doctoral workshop (not the ABH main conference). These will be awarded competitively prior to the workshop; applicants should clearly state if they wish to be considered for these scholarships.
     For further information, please contact Sheryllynne Haggerty at the above e-mail address. Also please see the full Workshop announcement. For more on the ABH conference please see the ABH website.

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.
