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 deadline for submissions is February 1, 2022. The Program Chair intends to send notifications of acceptance by February 20, 2022.

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

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 ().
