Annual Meetings

The Business History Conference has been meeting annually since the inception of the organization in 1954. By the mid-1990s, single sessions had been replaced by multiple concurrent sessions. Attendance continues to grow, as does the variety of meeting activities. The BHC has adopted policies governing the annual meeting.


The 2022 BHC Meeting will be held at the Sheraton Mexico City Maria Isabel Hotel, Mexico City, Mexico.

The Program Committee includes Stephen Mihm (University of Georgia) (co-chair); Paloma Fernández Pérez (Universitat de Barcelona) (co-chair); Gustavo del Angel (Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas, CIDE); Christy Chapin (University of Maryland); Ai Hisano (Kyoto University, 京都大学, Kyōto daigaku); Chinmay Tumbe (Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, IIMA); along with BHC President Andrea Lluch (CONICET and Universidad de los Andes).
