CFP Reminder: Academy of Management Business History Track 2018

The British Academy of Management (BAM)'s 2018 conference will take place at the University of the West of England in Bristol, UK, on September 4-6, 2018. This year's conference theme is "Driving Productivity in Uncertain and Challenging Times." The deadline for submissions is February 28.
      From the Management and Business History Track (track 14) call for papers:
This track aims to encourage the growing number of management and business historians who work in business schools and social science departments to engage in constructive debate with a wide range of management scholars. . . . Histories of organizations, industries and institutions give us the opportunity to understand how managers have responded to uncertain and challenging times in the past, whether it be through war, economic crisis, scandal or other disruptions to their activities. . . .  In this track we specialize in chronologically or longitudinally motivated research. . . . we appreciate papers dealing with the legacy of uncertainty in the past in business and management more generally, and how it has influenced the diversity of experience in present day businesses, regions and communities. 
For more details, please see the full call for papers. For more information about BAM 2018, please see the meeting website.
