The Economic and Business History Society annual conference will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, on May 18-22, 2022, and invites submissions to the conference committee on the theme of Recoveries in Economic and Business History. The conference committee will also consider papers that do not address this theme for the conference but that engage topics concerned with economic and business history widely construed.

Continuing from the success of the virtual conference in 2021, and the particular success of the mentorship workshops, EBHS will again be organizing workshop mentorship opportunities. These will be available for both early-career scholars and also mid-career scholars. Furthermore, EBHS will also be re-launching an innovative mentor matching program, for select scholars who would like to receive guidance in a sustained way beyond the actual conference.

The conference hotel is the Salt Lake City Marriott at University Park. Accommodation will be available to delegates at the preferential conference rate of $115 per night plus taxes. The conference presentations will be held at the conference hotel. There will be a plenary lecture on Friday 20 May, where Professor Susie Porter from the Department of History at the University of Utah will give a talk on her latest book, From Angel to Office Worker: Middle-Class Identity and Female Consciousness in Mexico, 1890-1950.

The program chair is Dr. Mitch Larson, email . Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words and contact details. The extended deadline for submissions is February 21, 2022. The Program Chair intends to send notifications of acceptance by the end of February. For submissions received by February 1 (original deadline), notifications will be sent by February 20, 2022.

Full Call for Papers and online paper submission are available on the conference website.
