Call for Papers
Corley Paper Development Workshop for Early Career Researchers Sheffield, 6th July 2019
In memory of the business historian Tony Corley who died last year, the Association of Business Historians have decided to inaugurate a new venture in the form of a Paper Development Workshop for Early Career Researchers (ECRs). This will take place on Saturday 6th July and be linked to the Association’s annual conference at Sheffield. Spaces have been reserved in the conference programme should any of those selected wish to present there as well.
Applications are welcome from any ECR working on a paper in the broad field of business history which they would like to develop with a view to publication. Up to five papers will be selected and will be developed at the workshop with leading business history scholars, including journal editors. The Association will cover the expenses of the presenters up to a maximum of £150 each. Those selected would be expected to join the Association if not already members.
Those interested should submit a 2-page application setting out an abstract of the proposed paper, a brief CV and an explanation of why they would benefit from the workshop. Applications should be sent to Professor Neil Rollings (Neil.Rollings@glasgow.ac.uk) by Monday 8th April.
