Doctoral Colloquium 2022: Mexico City

The BHC Doctoral Colloquium in Business History will be held on April 6th and 7th, 2022. 

Typically limited to ten students, the colloquium is open to doctoral candidates pursuing dissertation research within the broad field of business history from any relevant discipline (e.g., from economic sociology, political science, cultural anthropology, or management, as well as history). Most participants are in year 3 or 4 or their degree program. However, in some instances, applicants at a later stage make a compelling case that their thesis research had evolved in ways that led them to see the advantages of an intensive engagement with business history.

The Colloquium director is Eric Godelier, Professor of Business History, Ecole Polytechnique (France) eric.godelier@polytechnique.edu.
