The 46th Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) Annual Conference will be held in Porto, Portugal, at the Sheraton Porto Hotel & Spa. We invite contributions which embrace the range and temporal scope of economic and business history and its connections to other modes of historical investigation. 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.

Porto is a city full of history and culture, great gastronomy, and its eponymous connection to port wine and the Douro Valley. Echoes of the city’s past can be seen in the Porto Cathedral and the 14th century Fernandine Medieval Wall. Porto is also home to two-time Champions League winners FC Porto, the Serralves Museum of Modern Art and House and the Lello Bookshop.

Our opening keynote will be made by Professor Pablo Martín-Aceña of the University of Alcalá de Henares in Spain, and our Friday night banquet keynote will be provided by Professor Jaime Reis, of the Institute of Social Sciences at the University of Lisbon in Portugal.

The Conference will be headquartered at the Sheraton Porto Hotel & Spa, located in central Porto and easily accessible via car or the Metro do Porto. The nearest airport to Porto is Francisco Sá Carneiro International Airport, offering connections across Europe, and along with Humberto Delgado International Airport in Lisbon providing a range of flights to North America.

Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words and contact details. The deadline for submission of proposals is January 17th, 2021. The Program Chair will send a notification of acceptance of abstracts by February 14th, 2021. Online registration will be available soon after at www.ebhsoc.org. Proposals may be submitted through the EBHS website or by email to the Program Chair and/or the President.

All papers and panels accepted for the cancelled 2020 EBHS Annual Conference in Atlanta are automatically accepted for this conference, and the Program Chair will contact individual presenters about arrangements or updates to their papers soon.

If you have further questions about the meeting or organization please contact Program Chair Chris Corker () or EBHS 2021 President Rodrigo Dominguez ().
