WEHC 2018: Accepted Panels and Final CFP

The list of accepted panels for 2018 has been posted on the World Economic History Congress (WEHC) website. There is now ongoing a second and final call for proposals, with a deadline of June 30, 2017. According to the WEHC statement
Organizers are strongly encouraged to consult the list of already accepted sessions, with the goal of adding to the breadth of the Congress program, as well as to find models of successful proposals. As before, we will continue to welcome innovation in the format of individual sessions as appropriate for the topic, the methodologies employed, and the participants invited.
In the accepted panels section, panel titles link to full abstracts of the session and lists of participants. Information is also provided about those panels that have posted specific calls for papers. Nearly all the panels will of course be of interest, but some highlights include
"Business History in the Age of Modern Globalization"
"Multinationals and the Transformation of the World Economy"
"Multiple Futures for Business History: Building on Recent Debates and Suggestions"
"Passage to Panama: Nation States, Taxation and Multinational Enterprise in the Twentieth Century"
"Transnational Business Encounters in the Twentieth Century: Informal Company Networks, Cartels and Business Interest Associations Compared"
The Congress will take place in Boston, Massachusetts on July 29-August 3, 2018.
