#BHCCharlotte Book Auction

#BHCCharlotte Book Auction

If you have a recently published book or you are the editor of a journal in a field related to business history, please contact your publisher and urge them to participate in our free Book and Journals Exhibit. Direct them to the information available on the BHC Meeting webpage, specifically to the page of information for publishers at

A large number of publishers participate in the BHC exhibit each year, but smaller presses often do not plan to display their wares unless they are contacted by an author. Also, though publishers tend to display only new titles, they are usually willing to include any item still in print, especially for authors who will be in attendance at the meeting. We do an e-mailing to exhibit managers of publishers with large business history lists, but the display of a particular title may require direct intervention by authors. Particularly if your book is a recent paperback, which now are often print-on-demand, we urge you to contact your publisher directly.

Individual authors or journal editors whose publishers are unable to participate in the BHC exhibit are welcome to provide display copies of their work, accompanied by a flyer if desired.

It's not necessary to submit a registration form, but we do request that you email Carol Lockman (Business History Conference Manager, Hagley Center) at about your plans so we can anticipate space requirements. It is expected that volumes individually included in the Book and Journal Exhibit will be donated to the organization for the auction. We regret that we cannot be responsible for the return of any books or other materials included in the display.

Flyers announcing forthcoming books are also welcome!

Thanks! C.

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