Announcement: Business History Online Initiative

Dear colleague

Given the outlook of social distancing and limited access to campus giving rise to the possibility that staff research seminars (ie brown bag) will be suspended at least until January 2021, we invite you to take active part in online seminars jointly organised by and for the business history (broadly defined) community. This aims to be a space for us to present work under development, near to submission, dealing with “rejections” or “revise and resubmit” decisions on work. The seminars aim to serve the community, hosted and promoted by the organisers, and open to any other member of the business and management community who is willing to provide supportive and constructive comments. We are seeking presenters and attendees to get things moving forward.

We will appreciate your feedback by filling the poll here

with your preference and hopefully with an offer to guide/present a seminar. The poll has three choices which will remain confidential:

a. Get me off the list
b. Count me in as participant
c. I would like to offer a paper

Sessions will take place every other Wednesday afternoon (UK time) starting on September 16, 2020. The idea is to establish an outlet for business historians to present, communicate, and ensure the community is able to continue to develop.

The poll will close on Friday 5 June, 2020 at 20.00 hrs British Summer Time.

Please note there is a separate but related initiative aimed at earl at early career researchers. You will receive an invitation should you wish to attend shortly.

Looking forward to hearing from you

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.
