Call for Papers

38th Annual Economic and Business History Society Conference
Baltimore, Maryland, USA
May 23-25, 2013

Call for Papers deadline extended to March 15

The Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) is now accepting proposals for our 38th annual conference, to be held at the Tremont Plaza Hotel and Grand Historic Venue in Baltimore, Maryland. Proposals for presentations on any aspect of economic or business history are welcome. We also welcome proposals for whole panels, typically of three presentations. Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief curriculum vita, postal and email addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. We welcome submissions from graduate students and non-academic affiliates.

EBHS conferences offer participants the opportunity for intellectual interchange with an international, interdisciplinary, and collegial group of scholars. (Typically about half the participants are from economics departments and half are from history or economic history departments). The conference will include a banquet dinner with a keynote speech by Louis Galambos of Johns Hopkins University. It will also include a guided tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

EBHS prides itself on openness to new members. We offer reduced conference fees for graduate students and early career researchers (within four years of completion of doctorate). Our regular registration fees are also relatively low.

EBHS also operates a peer-reviewed journal, Essays in Economic and Business History, edited by Jason Taylor (Central Michigan University). Conference papers and non-conference papers alike may be submitted for consideration. We invite you to visit our website, www.ebhsoc.org, to see our new editorial board and policies, as well as back issues.

Proposals may be submitted through the EBHS website at www.ebhsoc.org, by email to ebhs2013@ebhsoc.org, or by postal mail. One need not present a paper to attend the conference, and we welcome volunteers to be panel chair-discussants. Registration for the conference, as well as further information including fees, is also available through the website.

Deadline for submission of proposals: March 15, 2013
(Notification will be sent by March 29.)
Deadline to register and send papers to panel: May 3, 2013
Conference: May 23 - 25, 2013

If you have further questions about the meeting or organization please contact Program Chair Duncan Philip Connors, duncan.connors@buckingham.ac.uk, or EBHS President Ranjit Dighe (State University of New York at Oswego, ranjit.dighe@oswego.edu).

See you in Baltimore!
