Call for applications for PhD on Women and Work in the City of London, 1870-1970

Women and Work in the City of London, 1870-1970 Supervisory team: Rowena Olegario (Faculty of History, University of Oxford) and Clara Harrow (Head Archivist, Baring Archive Ltd.) Applications are invited for an Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP-funded Collaborative Doctoral Award at the University of Oxford, in partnership with the Baring Archive Ltd. The deadline is January 8th, 2021, for a  starting date of October 2021. Working primarily with the Baring Archive’s historical personnel files, this project seeks to understand the characteristics of the women who sought white-collar employment in the financial sector from 1873 to the 1960s. Past scholarship on women in the City of London has focused on female investors, or individual women executives at the very top of their organisations. Despite the impressive surge in scholarship on the history of working women in Britain, the topic of female white-collar workers in the financial sector remains under-researched. We are also concerned w

Call for Papers: EHA 2021: Rules, Organizations, and Governments: Institutions and Economic History

Annual Meeting of the Economic History Association in Tucson, Arizona, September 10-12, 2021 The theme for EHA 2021 is “Rules, Organizations, and Governments: Institutions and Economic History.” Over the last two and a half centuries the economies of the world have dramatically transformed. Part of these transformations occurred in and resulted from technology, demography, and markets. Part of these transformations occurred in and resulted from institutions. The way societies organize themselves, in both public and private spheres, exhibits marked patterns across the range of developed and developing nations. While we know what the patterns are, as economic historians and social scientists generally, we have struggled to understand how the patterns developed or how we might induce the patterns of developed societies in developing (or undeveloped) societies. The program committee calls for papers that take a more granular approach to questions related to institutions, collective decisio

Virtual event: Koji Yamamoto "Taming Capitalism before its Triumph's (2018)" book discussion

Join historians and social scientists to discuss a recent book on the history of capitalism: Koji Yamamoto, Taming Capitalism before its Triumph (2018) . Tuesday 17 November 2020 : Chicago  07:00 CST || New York 08:00 EST || London 13:00 GMT || Hong Kong 21:00 HKT || Tokyo 22:00 JST  About this Event The history of capitalism has seen a renaissance over the last decade, but relatively fewer works have focused on its early phases, including the early modern period in which England began evolving into the ‘first industrial nation’. Koji Yamamoto’s book Taming Capitalism before its Triumph: Distrust, Public Service, and “Projecting” in Early Modern England (Oxford, 2018) offers a fresh reappraisal. This online symposium brings together renowned scholars from across medieval history, early modern history, historical sociology and political science to discuss the book.

Call for Papers: 2021 Online Meeting of the Economic History Society

The Economic History Society has decided to hold its 2021 conference in a virtual format. The conference will shift from its current dates (9-11 April) to 6 – 9 April 2021, and will be held in the afternoon (UK time). This will facilitate international participation, and prevent Zoom fatigue. Since the conference will now be a virtual one, we want to reissue the Call for Academic Papers and Sessions. We especially welcome papers from people who are not normally able to attend the conference. Papers should please be submitted, by 16 November , via the link at: https://conference2021.ehs.org.uk/ The Call for New Researcher Papers is now closed, but there is also an open call for New Researcher Posters, due by 23 November . Rather than trying to replicate a traditional poster session in a virtual setting, students will be asked to record 3-minute videos about their research, speaking to slides. Then each student will have a designated window in the programme for delegates to drop by (via

#BHC2021online: One more week to send your proposals!

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

Call for Applications: Patrick Henry Fellowship 2021-2022

The Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience invites applications for its full-time residential writing fellowship, which supports outstanding writing on American history and culture by both scholars and nonacademic authors. The Center’s Patrick Henry Fellowship includes a $45,000 stipend, health benefits, faculty privileges, a book allowance, and a nine-month residency (during the academic year 2021-2022) in a historic 18th-century house in Chestertown, Md.

The project should address the history and/or legacy – broadly defined – of the U.S. founding era and/or the nation’s founding ideas. It might focus directly on early America, or on the myriad ways the questions that preoccupied the nation’s founding generation have shaped America’s later history. Work that contributes to ongoing national conversations about Ameri
