CFP: AAHANZBS 2018

The Association of Academic Historians in Australian and New Zealand Business Schools (AAHANZBS) will hold its 10th annual conference on November 6-7, 2018, at the University of Sydney Business School, Sydney, Australia, hosted by the Business and Labour History Group there. Interested scholars are invited to submit papers addressing the conference theme, "Frontiers of Historical Research." According to the call for papers, the organizers are interested in
papers relating to accounting history, business history, economic history, labour history, management history, marketing history, tourism history, transport history and other areas of interest relating to historical research in business schools. We also invite papers/panel suggestions around teaching and pedagogy relating to business and labour history. We welcome papers from researchers outside business schools who have an interest in those fields. 
A 1,000-word abstract or a 6,000-word maximum paper is due by June 15, 2018.
     There is also a separate call for papers on the use of interdisciplinary approaches and history as a way to understand contemporary business issues. Papers accepted in response to this call will comprise a special session of the conference, with these papers also considered for inclusion (subject to normal refereeing) in a special issue of Accounting History Review. Submissions from scholars in all business disciplines are being encouraged for this session. These papers have an earlier deadline (April 30, 2018) and have different criteria for selection.
     Please contact Greg Patmore at greg.patmore@sydney.edu.au or Mark Westcott at mark.westcott@sydney.edu.au with any questions. For full details for both calls, please consult the AAHANZBS website.
