CFP -- 2021 Dissertation Workshop: Research Redesign in the Covid Context

2021 Dissertation Workshop: Research Redesign in the Covid Context

February 24-25, 2021
Application Deadline: Friday, January 15, 2021

Indiana University East Asian Studies Center and University of Illinois Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, with support from the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant, are pleased to announce the jointly organized online Dissertation Workshop.

The theme of this dissertation workshop is “Research redesign in the context of the Covid pandemic.” Everyone who relies on archival work or fieldwork in international locations by now realizes that they must adjust their plans and goals in order to continue an active research life. This is certainly true for all dissertation students who have made plans and, in many cases, received funding. What does a person do in this situation?

This workshop is intended to bring together doctoral students, regardless of citizenship, in the humanities and social sciences who are (1) developing dissertation proposals or are in the early phases of research or dissertation writing; and who are (2) planning, conducting, or are in the early phases of writing up dissertation research. The workshop will be limited to 12 students, ideally from a broad array of disciplines and working on a wide variety of materials and in various regions of Asia. It also will include a small multidisciplinary and multi-area faculty with similar interests.

The workshop will be conducted online in two sessions:
February 24, 2021, 5-8 pm CST/6-9 pm EST)
February 25, 2021, 5-8 pm CST/6-9 pm EST)

Applicants need not have advanced to candidacy but must have at least drafted a dissertation research proposal. Applications are also welcome from doctoral students in the early phases of writing their dissertations.

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
