EBHS Annual Conference

Organized in 1975, The Economic and Business History Society encourages interdisciplinary scholarship in the areas of business and economic history and the application of historical perspectives to current issues. The Economic and Business History Society holds its three-day annual conference during late April or in May. Members and friends are invited to attend and participate through presenting papers, entering into discussions on a wide range of topics and joining tours of business or historical sights in the area. A prominent part of each conference is the annual banquet held Friday evening of each conference. Each year a widely recognized speaker is invited to present the address. The annual meeting also provides an opportunity for friends to informally discuss topics pertinent to their shared interests.

Individual proposals for presentations on any aspect of economic, business, or financial history are welcome, as are proposals for whole panels. We also encourage submissions from graduate students and non-academic affiliates.

    The Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) is now accepting proposals for our 45th Annual Conference, to be held from May 28 to 30, 2020, at the Sheraton Atlanta, in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Call for Papers is open until February 17, 2020. Our general theme is Economic and Business History at the Crossroads. Here we would encourage reflections on ‘crossroads’, as sign of cultural and commercial interchange, geographic meeting places, exchanges and entrepots, and temporal and historical moments of divergence and contingency. However, individual proposals for presentations on any aspect of economic, business, or financial history are welcome, as are proposals for whole panels. We also encourage submissions from graduate students and non-academic affiliates.
