El Congreso tendrá lugar en el ISCTE y cuenta con el apoyo de las Universidades de Évora y NOVA de Lisboa y con un Comité Científico que lo dirigirá y asegurarará su calidad. En este encuentro pretendemos recibir y divulgar los trabajos más recienteds sobre historia y patrimonio de los caminos de hierro en diferentes contextos políticos, geográficos y cronológicos. Desde el siglo XIX los ferrocarriles desempeñan un papel central en el desarrollo y cremimiento econonómicos, en la construcción de naciones y Estados y en el progreso tecnológico. Como consecuencia, no o es sorprendente que, a lo largo de varias décadas, los ferrocarriles hayas sido objeto del estudio de historiadores de diferentes áreas, desde entusiastas, a historiadores económicos, políticos, sociales, de la empresa, de la cultura o de la tecnología. Recientemente, en este campo historiográfico se han producido avances al ligar la historia ferroviaria con tópicos convencionales como la diplomacia, el colonialismo y el imperialismo, la globalización, las transferencias tecnológicas, o áreas de conocimiento como el urbanismo, la geografía y la demografía histórica, el patrimonio y las representaciones culturales, etc., en diversos contextros geográficos y cronológicos.

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>, (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

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 Program Committee welcomes individual papers and session proposals that explore this theme. Submissions can a
