Position Announcement: Editor for the BHC's “Exchange” Blog

ABOUT THE POSITION The Blog Editor will compile information and announcements of interest to the business history community and post them to The Exchange approximately three times a week. The Exchange features calls for papers, conference announcements, grant listings, award winners, and links to blog posts elsewhere on the web of particular interest to business and economic historians. The new editor may wish to continue regular features of the Exchange such as Over the Counter, a compilation of links and short news items about business and economic history and historians; New Books of Interest; and Business Historians in the News, but is invited to shape the blog in new ways.
