"Native New Yorker," by Pura Cruz
The Business History Conference Liaison Committee seeks to sponsor a panel for the 2017 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, Gender, and Sexualities, which will take place on June 1-4 at Hofstra University in New York. For the first time, the conference is creating a special track on “Gender and Capitalism.” We invite BHC members to propose original research papers for a panel on “The Gendered Business of Capitalism.” We will select from the submissions to form at least one complete BHC-sponsored panel.    
     Please send a 250-word proposal and 1-page CV to Vicki Howard ( and Ellen Hartigan-O’Connor ( by January 15, 2016, for consideration.
