New mentoring scheme from the BHC's Emerging Scholars Committee


This year, the Business History Conference will be held virtually for the first time.

This new format presents us with both challenges and opportunities. The Emerging Scholars Committee usually runs networking events, such as a drinks reception and a breakfast. While we will miss seeing all of you in person this year, we hope to maintain some of these traditions in the new virtual format and to continue to provide a supportive space to network and meet other scholars.

We are launching a new mentoring scheme, which will provide participants at the virtual BHC with a valuable opportunity to gain advice and insight from more advanced scholars in the field on everything from completing a dissertation to finding research funding, navigating the academic job market to exploring possibilities for business historians beyond the academy.

If you would like to participate, please contact Victoria Barnes <barnes@rg.mpg.de>

We aim to begin the process of introducing mentors with mentees on the 17th February.

With best wishes,

Grace Ballor, Victoria Barnes, Jessica Burch, Valeria Giacomin, Sven Kube and Andrew McGee

The Emerging Scholar Committee



Por primera vez la BHC de 2021 se celebrará online. Este nuevo formato presenta tanto retos como oportunidades. El Comité de Investigadores Emergentes organiza eventos de networking en los congresos tales como una recepción y un desayuno. Si bien echaremos de menos poder reunirnos en persona este año, esperamos mantener algunas de nuestras tradiciones en el nuevo formato virtual. Confiamos en poder seguir proporcionando un espacio de apoyo a los investigadores y que estos puedan conocer a otros investigadores. 

La BHC virtual es una valiosa oportunidad para iniciar contactos y conocer a académicos más avanzados en el campo. Hemos creado un programa dedicado sobre todo a doctorandos y a investigadores en el mercado de trabajo. Si desea participar, póngase en contacto con Victoria Barnes <barnes@rg.mpg.de>

Nuestro objetivo es comenzar el proceso de introducción de mentores el 17 de febrero. 

Saludos cordiales,

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.
