Good news for those who missed the application deadline for the Second World Congress of Business History (WCBH) at Nanzan University, Nagoya, Japan (September 10th -12th, 2020).
The program committee decided to extend the deadline for panel and paper proposals to January 29 (Wednesday), 2020.
WCBH 2020 is a world-wide congress jointly organized by EBHA and BHSJ, and it is positioned as the 24th Congress of the European Business History Association, and also as a specially organized international conference by BHSJ. Please visit:
The local organizers have secured funds for partial travel support for Young Scholars (PhD students are prioritized, but other young scholars eligible) and for participants from regions that do not usually have the chance to attend academic conferences in Japan. The exact amount of support is not yet determined, but the organizers hope to be able to offer between $300 to $1000 according to region.
Applicants from the above categories whose papers have been selected for the Congress will be approached individually to apply for travel support.
More details will follow, but in the meantime we encourage applications from the above categories.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Japan!
