Stephen Mihm of the University of Georgia was presented with the Harold F. Williamson Prize of the Business History Conference at the organization's annual meeting, held in Frankfurt, Germany. The prize honors a mid-career scholar for contributions to the teaching and writing of business history. Mihm, who is an associate professor of history at the University of Georgia, is a member of the BHC Board of Trustees and an editorial board member for Enterprise & Society. His publications include A Nation of Counterfeiters: Capitalists, Con Men, and the Making of the United States (Harvard University Press, 2007) and, with Nouriel Roubini, Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance (Penguin Press, 2010). He also founded and edited the Echoes blog on Bloomberg View, the opinion and editorial division of Bloomberg Media, which discussed current events in the light of business history (2011-2013). He tweets at @SMihm and still occasionally writes for Bloomberg and other media outlets. In 2012 he was the recipient of the University of Georgia History Department's Parks-Heggoy Award for excellence in graduate student teaching.
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
