CFP: 2nd World Congress on Business History

The 2nd World Congress on Business History, in conjunction with the 24th Congress of the European Business History Association (EBHA), will meet at Nanzan University in Nagoya, Japan, on September 10-12, 2020. The theme will be “Business History in a Changing World.” The call for papers states:
Reflecting the ever-changing world of business, the discipline of Business History has been far from static. In recent decades there has been a dramatic diversification in both research topics and methods following on from the now classic works of Chandler et al. The emergence of research relating to alternative historical approaches and organizational science, and those which incorporate quantitative methods and/or embraces the “cultural turn”; the institutionalization of Business History research with the establishment of academic societies and academic journals; the internationalization of the field, etc., are all encouraging trends in the evidence of a vibrant research field. The program committee thus welcomes papers/panels from postgraduate, early career and established scholars on a wide-range of topics and various dimensions of “Business History in a Changing World.”
For a much fuller discussion of possible topics and other information, please see the complete call for papers.
     The deadline for proposals is January 15, 2020. Those interested in submitting proposals should use the Congress upload platform at http://ebha.org/public/C10.
