Call for Papers
Joint 49th EBHS and
Association of Business Historians Conference
York, UK, 27 to 29 June 2024

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS EXTENDED TO 9 FEBRUARY 2024


Connections

The joint 49th Economic and Business History Society annual conference and Association of Business Historians conference 2024 will be held in York, UK, from 27 to 29 June 2024 and invites submissions to the conference committee on the theme of ‘Connections’ in Economic and Business History.

Building on the themes of the previous conference of EBHS, with Building Bridges, and ABH, looking at Business History beyond the discipline, our theme of Connections aims to continue these important discussions towards the development of both disciplines. This embraces not just the connection at the conference between the two societies, but also the connections between economic and business history, and other associated strands of history including organisational, financial, banking, social, labour and management history. We also invite participants to consider the theme of connections in business and economic history, examining the historical relationships between a multitude of actors and phenomena, including people, entrepreneurs, firms, governments, clusters, knowledge, and also between geographically distant actors. We also welcome papers on any aspect of economic or business history, and proposals for full panels of three papers.

We look forward to welcoming delegates to York in 2024, a city “with Roman roots and a Viking past, offering an adventure for everyone”. The conference venue will be York St John University, just outside of the historic York city walls and in the shadow of the famous York Minster, with associated events taking place in walking distance of the main conference venue. The conference venue is also ideally placed in relation to transportation links, with the railway station a short walk from York St John. York is also well connected for rail transport from major airports including those in London and Manchester.

The President of EBHS for the 2024 Conference/ABH Conference organiser is Dr Chris Corker (Chris.Corker@york.ac.uk). Proposals should be submitted via the conference website (ebhsoc.org/conference) and include:

  • The title of the presentation.
  • An abstract of no more than 500 words.
  • Contact details for each presenter.

The submission point is now open at the above website address and the deadline has been extended to 9 February 2024. The Program Committee intends to send notifications of acceptance as soon as possible once the deadline has passed.

All questions and queries regarding the conference should be directed to Chris Corker at Chris.Corker@york.ac.uk

Poster submission

The conference also welcomes poster proposals from graduate students on all aspects of business history covering a wide range of periods and countries.

Poster presenters will normally be in either the First or Second Year of their PhD. We also strongly encourage those who have previously presented a poster to submit a paper proposal to the main conference in a subsequent year.

Those wishing to be considered for inclusion in the programme must submit an application to Dr Chris Corker (Chris.Corker@york.ac.uk) by 12 January 2024. This should provide:

  • Title of your PhD project.
  • An abstract (300 words) that explains the background to the poster; the questions addressed; the sources and methods employed; and likely conclusions.
  • A current CV.

Approved posters must be submitted by 1 June 2024, and a style guide will be circulated to all presenters selected for poster presentations.
