CfP Globalisation in Business History

Special Issue Call for Papers: “Globalisation in Business History”

International Journal of Business and Globalisation

Guest Editor: Christopher M. Hartt, Dalhousie University,

Special Issue Description:

The Special Issue will focus on historical themes related to globalisation and business.  Business History is an inclusive discipline welcoming all fields, methods and perspectives, of enquiry related to management, entrepreneurism, economics, accounting, psychology, sociology, law or any other business related discipline as well as those from history.

The theme of the special issue relates to the growing debates related to current globalizing activities and the relationship between those debates and the historical context.  What has happened in the contested past? How is that relevant for the present and future? How do themes of competitiveness, profitability, and long-term sustainability interact with ethics, social responsibility and environmentalism in a global market? Have these themes emerged before and how did they impact trade?

The questions in the forgoing paragraph provide a small sample of appropriate submissions and should not constrain researchers.  Any manner of thought provoking and rigorous article engaging globalization and Business History is encouraged.

Please upload to and keep your submission number for future reference.

Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2016

You can expect reviewer comments by 31 October

Revisions due 31 December for publication shortly thereafter
