BHC 2018 Program Now Available

The full program for the 2018 meeting of the Business History Conference, which will take place in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 5-7, has been posted on the BHC meeting website.
     The theme of the meeting is "Money, Finance, and Capital." The Program Committee consists of David Sicilia (chair), University of Maryland; Christy Ford Chapin, University of Maryland-Baltimore County; Per Hansen, Copenhagen Business School; Naomi Lamoreaux, Yale University; Rory Miller, University of Liverpool; Julia C. Ott, New School for Social Research; and Mary O’Sullivan (BHC president), University of Geneva. Local arrangements have been overseen by Joshua Davis, University of Baltimore.
     In addition to regular sessions, the meeting will feature the Krooss Prize Dissertation session; a plenary on "Baltimore in Business History," and two roundtable discussions: one on "Adventures in Financial Archives," and a second on "Teaching Financial History."
     The meeting also affords many opportunities for social and professional networking: a breakfast and a reception for "emerging scholars"; two regular evening receptions; and two peer-group lunches: "Women in Business History," and "Business Historians in Business Schools." It culminates with the traditional book auction, the presidential address (by Mary O'Sullivan), and an awards banquet.
     Please check the BHC meeting website for hotel and transportation information; registration details will be posted shortly.
