Business History/Historians at the 2018 AHA: Program Available

The 2018 annual meeting of the American Historical Association (AHA) will take place in Washington, D.C., on January 4-7. The program has now been posted online at the meeting website.
    The Business History Conference has three sponsored events as an AHA-affiliated society: two sessions and a luncheon:
Session 73: "Ideologies of Industrialization in the Early American Republic"
[No session number]: "Peddling Print in 19th-Century America: Subscription Publishing as a Business Model"
BHC Luncheon: "Race, Ethnicity, and Nationalism: Perspectives from Business History"
In addition, many other sessions feature business history and historians. The AHA program site allows users to search for papers in a variety of ways, including key words; searches on "business" and "capital" return dozens of papers--too many to list here. A few of particular interest:
Session 19: "Knowledge Production and Economic Life in the Long Gilded Age"
Session 150: "Race, Risk, and Capitalism in the Twentieth-Century United States"
Session 159: "Teaching Capitalism"
Session 193: "Records and Revolutions: The Music Industry as an Agent of Change"
Session 228: "Revolutionaries, Refugees, and Smugglers: New Directions in Inter-American Exchanges during the Age of Revolution"
Session 266: "The US Military as an Economic Institution since World War II"
Session 274: "Black Economic Internationalism in the 20th Century"
