2021 Call for Papers: Business History: Building for the Future
Annual Meeting of the Business History Conference
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.
