New UK Group: The Business History Network

A new group has recently been established in the UK called the Business History Network. According to the organization's website,
The Business History Networks brings together early-career researchers from all disciplines with an interest in business history. We want to create a network that helps increase the quality and impact of business history in the UK and build long-term collaborative relationships between the participants of our workshops. . . . We strongly invite researchers from other disciplines such as sociology, law, management, economics, and the humanities, whose research is on business history.
The group's initial activities are two workshops; the first was held in March; the second will take place on June 18, 2015. The program for both can be found here. Questions about the network can be addressed to Jasper Bittner, who is a doctoral student in Economic and Social History at the University of Oxford working on bankruptcy law in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe.
    The Business History Network is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and supported by the University of Oxford.
