The Business History Conference announces its search for Editor of Enterprise & Society: The International Journal of Business History. Enterprise & Society is the world's leading journal in business history. Interdisciplinary in approach and international in scope, it offers a forum for research on the historical relations between businesses and their larger political, cultural, institutional, social, and economic contexts. Oxford University Press publishes the journal.
The new Editor will succeed founding editor, William J. Hausman of the College of William & Mary, whose final issue will be December 2003. The new Editor's term starts in January 2004, runs for four years, and is renewable. The Editor is supported by associate editors and an editorial board representative of a broad range of nations, methodologies, and areas of specialization. The Editor also serves as an ex-officio officer of the BHC. The Editor will be involved in negotiating a renewal of the contract with Oxford University Press. All expressions of interest are welcome, preferably by 1 April 2002, and addressed to Philip Scranton, Chair, Enterprise & Society Transition Committee. Formal applications should be submitted by 1 December 2002, and include a statement of qualifications, management plan, intellectual goals, and editorial philosophy. It should also include a letter from the sponsoring institution on its commitment of support. Interviews will take place in early 2003, and the BHC Trustees will make the final appointment at their Spring 2003 meeting.
