The Canadian Business History Association - l'Association canadienne pour l'histoire des affaires (CBHA/ACHA) is an affiliated committee of the Canadian Historical Association (CHA). In this capacity the CBHA/ACHA is looking to sponsor panels for the upcoming CHA Annual Meeting May 29-31, 2017 at Ryerson University in Toronto. (Each affiliated committee of the CHA has a reserved spot for one sponsored panel. Last year in Calgary both business history proposals were accepted, and well attended.)
CBHA/ACHA encourages all historians whose work falls under the broad umbrella of business history to submit either: a) a full panel proposal; or b) an individual paper proposal that could be combined to form a panel. All topics will be considered, including those that concern consumer, labour, financial, economic and cultural history dimensions of business and capitalism. Non-Canadian topics are also welcome.
For details on proposal requirements, please refer to the CHA Call for Papers:
Please note that CHA deadline to submit proposals is October 17, and so we would like to receive your proposals by Wednesday October 12th at the latest. Please direct proposals to:
J. Andrew Ross
Early submission is encouraged so that we might provide a quick response.
Students and scholars within five years of the PhD are particularly encouraged to apply and have a very good chance of receiving CBHA/ACHA travel funding if their proposal is successful. In the past year of operations (its first), the CBHA/ACHA has given out almost $10,000 in funding to Canadian business history scholars.
