Reminder: BHC Meeting Proposal Deadline Is Approaching

A reminder that the deadline for paper proposals for the 2016 BHC annual meeting is 1 October 2015.
The 2016 Business History Conference Annual Meeting will be held in Portland, Oregon, on March 31-April 2, 2016. The theme of the meeting will be "Reinterpretation." All sessions will take place at the Embassy Suites Portland-Downtown, located in the historic Multnomah Hotel building.
     The Program Committee encourages panels and individual papers that answer the call to "Reinterpretation," expansively interpreted. Topics that examine the forces shaping our future by reinterpreting research related to the Pacific Rim are but one important example of numerous “settled” or incomplete bodies of business history scholarship from which reinterpretation promises to generate fresh constructs and new insights. In keeping with longstanding BHC policy the Program Committee will give equal consideration to submissions not directly related to the conference theme. A fuller exposition of the conference theme can be found in the complete call for papers.
    This year proposals are to be submitted electronically. To submit a proposal, follow the link "Submit a Paper/Panel Proposal" on the BHC 2016 meeting website.
    Graduate students should note that the deadline for applications to the Doctoral Colloquium is November 15, 2015; those proposals should be submitted via email as described in the call for papers. Questions about the Colloquium should be sent to its director, Edward Balleisen.
     General questions regarding the BHC’s 2016 annual meeting may be sent to Secretary-Treasurer Roger Horowitz.
