11th EBHA DOCTORAL SUMMER SCHOOL
“CHALLENGES FOR BUSINESS HISTORY IN A CHANGING WORLD”
Madrid, CUNEF, June 21-22, 2022
The 11th edition of the EBHA (European Business History Association) Summer School will take place at CUNEF, Madrid, from Tuesday, June 21st to Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022, in conjunction with the European Business History Association Congress.
The school, titled “Challenges for Business History in a Changing World”, aims to encourage a fresh and rigorous exchange of thoughts, ideas, and new research being done by doctoral students in fields closely related to Business History. It is organised jointly by the European Business History Association (EBHA) and the Colegio Universitario de Estudios Financieros CUNEF.
The main aim of the School is to provide students with a friendly atmosphere in which to discuss their preliminary findings with leading scholars as well as among their peers. Each student will have 15 minutes maximum to present her/his project, stressing especially: research questions and goals, methodology, sources, challenges, and provisional outcomes. After her/his presentation, each student will receive questions and comments from other students and from faculty members.
Students will be accommodated in the beautiful and lively city of Madrid. The organisers will cover all local costs (accommodation and food), but participants are expected to pay their own travel expenses.
Students will also have the opportunity to present their research projects in a dedicated Poster session during the Congress, receiving feedback from conference participants. The organisers will take care of the accommodation costs and of the congress fee of those students who submit a poster on their research project.
