CfP: 37th Annual Economic & Business Historical Society Conference

37th Annual Economic and Business Historical Society Conference
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
April 26-28, 2012

Proposals are now being accepted for the 37th annual conference of
the Economic and Business Historical Society (EBHS), to be held at
the Flamingo Hotel on the Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. Proposals
should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief
curriculum vita, postal and email addresses, and telephone and fax
numbers. Submissions are especially welcome from graduate students
and non-academic affiliates.

Conference room rates are $60 per night Wednesday through Thursday
and $120 per night Friday through Sunday and must be booked through
the Flamingo at www.flamingolasvegas.com or 888-902-9929. Make sure
you mention EBHS when reserving your room to receive the conference
rate. Proposals for presentations on any aspect of economic or
business history are welcome.

The EBHS conference offers participants an opportunity for
intellectual interchange within a collegial interdisciplinary group
of scholars from around the world (a typical mix of participants
includes around half from economics departments and half from
history/economic history departments). This year’s keynote speaker
will be Michael Hiltzik (Los Angeles Times), author of Colossus:
Hoover Dam and the Making of the American Century.

The Society prides itself on providing a collegial environment for
academic exchange as well as being welcoming to new members. In
addition, EBHS offers reduced conference fees for graduate students
and early career researchers (four years or less since doctorate
earned). Our regular registration fees are also relatively low
compared to some conferences where fees are many hundreds of

Conference presenters may also submit their papers for consideration
by the EBHS’s peer-reviewed journal, Essays in Economic and Business
History, edited by Janice Traflet (Bucknell University).

Proposals may be submitted through the EBHS website at
www.ebhsoc.org, by e-mail to fred.gates at swosu.edu or by post to the
program chair:
Dr. Frederick B. Gates
Department of Social Sciences
Southwestern Oklahoma State University
100 Campus Drive
Weatherford, OK 73096

The deadline for submission of proposals is January 15, 2012.

The Program Chair will send a formal letter of acceptance of
abstracts on or before January25, 2012.

Earlier submissions should receive written confirmation within 2
months of submission.

Conference participants must reserve rooms before March 22, 2012 in
order to receive the pre-arranged conference rates.

All conference participants must register before March 31, 2012.
Failure to register will result in deletion of participation from the
program and will disqualify submission to the conference journal.
Online registration will be available at: www.ebhsoc.org. In
addition, completed papers must be submitted to panel chair and other
panel members no later than March 31, 2012.

In addition, this year’s conference is being held in a much less
formal setting. The members and Board of Trustees of EBHS encourage
conference participants to dress business casual and encourage
participants to bring their families and be prepared to enjoy all of
the sights that Las Vegas has to offer, including a guided tour of
Hoover Dam!
