Deadline Reminder: Special Issue CFP: “Indian Business in the Global World”

Business History has issued a call for papers for a special volume on "Indian Business in the Global World." According to guest editors Swapnesh Masrani, School of Management, University of Stirling, and Carlo Morelli, School of Social Sciences, University of Dundee:
Indian business history remains a largely unexplored area of research for a European and North American academic audience. Hitherto Indian business history has largely been addressed within a dichotomy of its relationship to the rise of the domestic economic industrialization or alternatively within a context of subordination to, and exploitation by, western multinationals. Thus the relationship between indigenous development and Indian firms’ integration and growth within a wider world economy has been paid little attention. This call . . . seeks to place the development of Indian business in its wider relationships to both the Indian domestic economy and the world economy.
For a fuller discussion of the aims of this special issue, please see the full call for papers.
     Articles should be based on original research and/or innovative analysis and should not be under consideration by another journal. All articles should be submitted by March 31, 2017. Submission instructions are available on the journal website. Questions may be directed to Swapnesh Masrani or Carlo Morelli.
