20 tuition-free international and domestic MA studentships, MA Global and Regional History, Higher School of Economics, St Petersburg, Russia.

Rolling admissions, with an international tuition-free competition deadline on 1 February 2021.

HSE St Petersburg invites domestic and international applicants to its new two-year, English-language MA ‘Global and Regional History’. Explore the vibrant field of global history through a regional focus on Russian, former Soviet, and Eurasian spaces, and an interdisciplinary unity of history and anthropology. The program’s core seminars in theory and methodology are complemented by a broad array of regional courses from the history of St Petersburg to that of personality cults of the 20th century, the Cold War, imperial crossroads in northern Eurasia, the Caucasus, Central, and Eastern Europe, the Arctic as well as on Russian/Soviet links with Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The program draws on the proximity and wealth of archives and museum collections of St Petersburg and the diversity of its rich environs. Its students benefit from the ease of travel to Moscow, Finland, the Baltics, and multiple regional locations within Russia. Full tuition waiver for up to 20 places for international and domestic students.

We are an energetic and friendly program, innovative and intellectually inspiring, and proud of making everyone part of a community that extends well beyond the department of history. In the time of Covid-19 we have mastered a rigorous online seminar format and amiable and close cohort interaction, which we nonetheless will be happy to turn back offline, circumstances permitting. Global history is one of the most exciting subjects to study at university today, and St Petersburg is unmatched as a place to study just as somewhere to be. We encourage strong applicants with undergraduate degrees in history and anthropology, Russian, East European, and Eurasian studies as well as other backgrounds for whom history and related disciplines are new subjects. This M.A. is English-taught yet including some Russian-language electives and options for Russian language training. It provides skills for further academic study, including Ph.D., as well as non-academic careers.

New resource available: Business history and race: a partial, open bibliography

Business history and race: a partial, open bibliography The Business History Conference is working to facilitate the creation of a bibliography of scholarly work on race and business history. We hope that the bibliography will serve as a resource for those seeking to create more inclusive syllabi and understand the historical context for our present moment of reckoning with structural racism in the United States and across the globe. The bibliography is crowdsourced and draws on the collective expertise of the BHC membership. The BHC wishes to expand the list of references already curated and invites your contributions to the bibliography (The current list of references contains 154 titles). Submit your suggestions by (a) emailing additional references to Anne Fleming of the BHC Electronic Media Oversight Committee <acf80 at law.georgetown.ed> or BHC Web Editor Paula de la Cruz-Fernandez <padelacruzf at gmail.com>, (b) tweeting titles to @TheBHCNews or (c) adding it

[Updated] Call for Proposals: Annual Meeting of the Business History Conference #BHC2021online

Annual Meeting of the Business History Conference  Virtual meeting  March 11-13, 2021  Proposals due November 14, 2020  The originally agreed theme of ‘The Ubiquity of Business’ has been dropped. Instead, a new theme ‘Business History: Building for the Future’ has been developed. This year’s BHC annual meeting will be unlike any previous annual meeting as it will be a virtual one. It is hoped that this is only a temporary interlude from the standard get-togethers which we all value so much. However, it also provides an opportunity to be innovative. Four principles underpin our hopes for the annual meeting:  1. To assist graduate students and emerging scholars as a priority.  2. To make the conference as interactive as possible.  3. To regard the meeting as an opportunity to be experimental and radical.  4. To be as inclusive as is possible.  To achieve these goals the Program Committee have agreed the following in relaunching the call for papers for the 2021 BHC annual meeting.  The Pr

Call for Submissions for Edited Volume: Emotions and the History of Business

Emotions and the History of Business Mandy Cooper (UNC-Greensboro) and Andrew Popp (Copenhagen Business School) We are developing a proposal for an edited volume on emotions and the history of business and seek further contributions . In the first instance, the proposal will be submitted to a series on the history of emotions edited by Peter Stearns and Susan Matt and published Bloomsbury. Why emotions and the history of business? A small but growing body of work has already begun to demonstrate the potential in bringing the histories of emotions and of business into greater dialogue.1 We aim to more fully and systematically explore that potential through this proposed volume. What does bringing emotions in add to the history of business? Does business not inhabit a world of rationality? We firmly believe that from individual entrepreneurs to family firms to massive corporations, businesses have in many ways relied on, leveraged, generated, and been shaped by emotions for
