The Business History Collective (Global) is looking for a new editor

The Business History Collective (Global) is looking for one person to join the editorial board. The full invitation from Bernardo Batiz-Lazo and the Collective is below. Expressions of interest directly to me at by Monday, October 12, 2020. ++++ Business History Collective (Global) is an innovative space established in the summer of 2020, in which fresh ideas about business history (broadly defined) can be developed and discussed. We have also developed it to be a space that promotes areas of the discipline - including considerations of the impacts of structural inequalities - and global regions that have been neglected. In this respect we also particularly hope that it will provide a welcoming and supportive environment for BAME, women, early career researcher and colleagues outside of Europe and North America who will be missing out on opportunities to showcase their work. We aim for this to be a long-term, self-sustainable project, in which th

Call for Applications: 2021 BHC Doctoral Colloquium in Business History

BHC Doctoral Colloquium in Business History   The 2021  BHC Doctoral Colloquium in Business History will be held in spring 2021. This prestigious workshop, funded by Cambridge University Press, will most likely also take place on a remote basis, over two days in either late May or early June.  We may spread the sessions out even more this year, given the likely need for digital interaction. Typically limited to ten students, the colloquium is open to early stage doctoral candidates pursuing dissertation research within the broad field of business history, from any relevant discipline.  Topics (see  for past examples) may range from the early modern era to the present and explore societies across the globe. Participants work intensively with a distinguished group of BHC-affiliated scholars (including at least two BHC officers), discussing dissertation proposals, relevant literatures and research strategies, and career trajectories. Typically, part

[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
