New Initiative: Financial History Network (@financialhist)

[From the Financial History Network (@financialhist)]

Dear colleagues,

We want to inform you about the launch of the Financial History Network (@financialhist) and its webinar series. The network aims to promote scholarship in the fields of financial history and the history of finance, broadly defined. The network will launch a webinar series in September 2020 to provide a space for the presentation and discussion of works in progress, dissertation chapters, or R&R manuscripts. The webinars are open to scholars primarily from a qualitative perspective, willing to engage in productive conversations by providing supportive and constructive comments to peers. 

We are currently looking for presenters and attendees to get things moving forward. We especially welcome submissions from graduate students and early-career researchers. We strongly encourage women, people of color, members of minority groups, scholars based in or working on under-represented geographies (such as Latin America, the Mediterranean Basin, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia), and scholars from disciplines other than economics and history to participate in the webinar series. 

We are aware there are alternative outlets like the Bonn Macrohistory Seminars, the YSI Economic History Graduate Webinars, and the Virtual Economic History Seminars. We aim to complement these initiatives by giving prominence to works that employ a more qualitative or institutional perspective in the fields of financial, banking, monetary, and accounting history, the history and sociology of finance, and the history of capitalism. We are also open to other approaches.

If you are interested in taking part in this initiative, please fill in the form here. You will be able to choose whether you want to join as a presenter, a discussant, as a member of the audience, or to help organize future webinars.

The webinar sessions will take place once a month starting in September 2020 on Mondays, at 5 pm Frankfurt / 4 pm London / 12 pm Sao Paulo / 11 am New York / 10 am Mexico City.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Business History in Times of Disruption: Embracing Complexity and Diversity Annual Meeting of the Business History Conference Sheraton Mexico City María Isabel Hotel Ciudad de México, México April 7-9, 2022 [ bookmark the CFP ] The Covid-19 crisis arrived with little warning, disrupting global business and trade. Industries as different as tourism, retail, and manufacturing were plunged into disarray by travel restrictions, broken supply chains, and quarantines. The pandemic also underscored the growing dangers posed by economic inequality and environmental degradation, hinting at a more tumultuous future. We have, it seems, entered into a new age of uncertainty. Informed by these developments, the 2022 Business History Conference will explore the diverse ways that entrepreneurs, firms, and organizations coped with complexity, uncertainty, and disruption over the long run.
