CFP: Association of Business Historians 2018

The 2018 Association of Business Historians (ABH) annual conference will be held on June 29-30, 2018, at the Open University Business School in Milton Keynes. The conference theme is "Pluralistic Perspectives of Business History: Gender, Class, Ethnicity, Religion." The conference "aims to explore the impact of gender, social class, ethnicity, and religion on business success, fraud, funding, financial markets, corporate governance, and corporate social responsibility."
    The program committee will consider both individual papers and entire panels. Individual paper proposals should include a one-page (up to 300-word) abstract and one-page curriculum vitae (CV). Panel proposals should include a cover letter stating the rationale for the panel and the name of its contact person; one-page (300 word) abstract and author’s CV for each paper; and a list of preferred panel chairs and commentators with contact information. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2018. Conference proposals should come through the online submission platform.
