The Business History Collective (Global) is looking for a new editor

The Business History Collective (Global) is looking for one person to join the editorial board. The full invitation from Bernardo Batiz-Lazo and the Collective is below.

Expressions of interest directly to me at by Monday, October 12, 2020.


Business History Collective (Global) is an innovative space established in the summer of 2020, in which fresh ideas about business history (broadly defined) can be developed and discussed. We have also developed it to be a space that promotes areas of the discipline - including considerations of the impacts of structural inequalities - and global regions that have been neglected.

In this respect we also particularly hope that it will provide a welcoming and supportive environment for BAME, women, early career researcher and colleagues outside of Europe and North America who will be missing out on opportunities to showcase their work. We aim for this to be a long-term, self-sustainable project, in which those involved share responsibilities and proceed based on principles of respectful academic debate, democracy and consensus.

We wonder if you would consider joining us at the board of the Business History Collective (Global), with responsibilities starting for the January-May 2021 sessions.  Your role during Autumn 2020 would be to work alongside at least one other colleague to help co-ordinate the call for papers, select the presenters, schedule the program, and help with the logistics and promotion for each webinar session for the term starting January 2021. You would be responsible for organising between 5 and 7 speakers and commentators/facilitator each year. One or two of these webinars could be a panel, grand lecture or a book launch.

We already have all the documentation and systems in place. Still, we expect you or your teammate to add these entries in our Eventbrite profile and our blog in Wordpress as well as help promoting the seminars in social media (Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin).

We usually assign a commentator/facilitator for each session, so that as a member of the editorial board, we can focus on seeing the smooth running of the seminar. It is also good practice that, a week or ten days before the webinar, there is a quick equipment check with presenters. 

Again, we share all these tasks but take turns to be a team of two to take the lead of offering a block of seminars to a broad audience around the world. We exchange views and keep up to date through a shared space in Slack.

We would love to hear from you and think this can be an excellent opportunity to raise your international profile.
