The Economic & Business Historical Society welcomes proposals for presentations on all aspects of business and economic history at its 33rd annual conference at Grand Rapids, Michigan April 23-25, 2009. Composed of more than one hundred North American and international members, the Economic & Business Historical Society offers its members and conference participants an opportunity for intellectual interchange within a collegial interdisciplinary group.

Papers presented at the conference may be submitted for publication in the Society's peer reviewed journal, Essays in Economic and Business History, edited by Lynne Pierson Doti, Chapman University.
The Society seeks proposals for both individual papers and panel sessions. Proposals for individual papers should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief CV, postal and email addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. Panel proposals should also suggest a title and a panel chair. Graduate students and non-academic affiliates are welcome. Graduate students may qualify for reduced registration fees. Submissions imply that at least one author will register for the conference and be present at the time designated in the conference program. To be included in the proceedings and to be eligible for publication in the Essays in Economic and Business History, the paper must be presented by one of the authors at the conference. The deadline for submission is January 15th, 2009.
