The Business History Initiative at Harvard Business School is hosting a conference on June 13-14, 2014: "Business History in Africa, Asia, and Latin America: Integrating Course Development and New Research."
The conference will focus on course development in business history and the history of capitalism beyond the developed economies of Europe, the U.S., and East Asia. It will seek to leverage existing expertise about the field from countries where it is more established, as well as the experience of other disciplines, including world history and international business. Topics to be discussed include how to integrate the latest research into teaching materials; new and innovative pedagogical methods, including web-based learning and the use of oral history; the availability of primary sources; and the different interests and requirements of students in business schools, history departments, and in graduate programs.
We would be delighted to have you join us at this conference, which is open to educators, graduate students, and other academics with an interest in the subject. It will be held on the campus of Harvard Business School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Please send your paper proposal to Walter Friedman (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 31, 2014.
