Upcoming International Conferences/Meetings

i. Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) 42nd Annual Conference 2017

The Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) is now accepting proposals for our 42nd Annual Conference, to be held at the historic Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. The conference will take place from May 25th to May 27th 2017. Proposals for presentations on any aspect of ancient to recent economic or business history are welcome, as are proposals for whole panels. We welcome submissions from graduate students and non-academic affiliates.

The EBHS conference offers participants the opportunity for intellectual interchange with an international, interdisciplinary, and collegial group of scholars (typically about half our participants are from economics departments and half are from history or economic history departments). The EBHS prides itself on its openness to new members and we offer reduced conference fees for graduate students and early career researchers (four years or less since doctorate earned). Our regular registration fees are reasonable, as is the cost of accommodation at the conference venue. Awards will be given for best presentation by a graduate student and for best presentation.

Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words and contact details. The deadline for submission of proposals is February 15, 2017. The Program Chair will send a notification of acceptance of abstracts by March 1, 2017. Online registration will be available soon at
