2000 BHC Meeting
"ENTERPRISE IN SOCIETY" - MARCH 10-12, 2000
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE BUSINESS HISTORY CONFERENCE
To celebrate the launching of its new journal, Enterprise & Society: The International Journal of Business History, the Business History Conference will organize its next meeting around the theme "Enterprise in Society." This conference will meet from March 10 to 12, 2000, in Palo Alto, California.
We invite proposals for papers that explicitly situate business enterprises within larger social, cultural, and political contexts. Papers might explore, for example, how these contexts shape decisions by business men and women, influence entrepreneurs' organization of their enterprises, and even affect business leaders' goals for their firms. Papers also could explore how these larger systems channel information flows within and among business enterprises and between businesses and the environment in which they operate. Submissions on topics outside this theme also are welcome.
The Program Committee consists of Colleen Dunlavy (chair), Glenn Bugos, and Regina Blaszczyk. Naomi Lamoreaux (BHC president-elect) and Roger Horowitz (secretary-treasurer) are ex officio members.
The Business History Conference welcomes new members, and particularly encourages graduate students, scholars outside the United States, and those practicing business history within areas of specialization outside history and economic history to join.
