Call for Papers

International Session of the 54th Congress of the Business History Society of Japan (BHSJ)

The main theme for the 2018 congress is ‘Merging methods and approaches: history, social science and business historians’. Since its emergence as a field in the 1920s, business historians have endeavored to bridge and combine the tools and approaches of history and social science. The prominence of one tradition over the other within our field shows remarkable diversity around the globe. In Japan, business history was institutionalized at faculties of social science, and so the use of social scientific concepts and inquiries became an essential element of the discipline fostering a rich tradition of detailed empirical studies in business and industrial history. However, in recent decades, as a result of the institutionalization of business history as its own discipline, the dialog with social scientists has subsided somewhat. The 2018 international session offers the opportunity to consider the current use of methods and approaches that are applied in our discipline across the globe, and to contemplate the future prospects and direction of our field. By bringing together the latest research on various topics within business history we hope to generate a fruitful discussion on the significance and limitations of social scientific methodologies and concepts.

Although the congress takes ‘Merging methods and approaches’ as the main theme, reflecting the great diversity in business history the BHSJ welcomes submissions on a whole range of topics, periods, regions, etc. We invite submissions of proposals by both individual researchers and complete panel sessions.

Conference Dates: September 29-30, 2018
Venue: Kyoto University, Japan
The deadline for submissions is April 15th 2018.

ASSI CONFERENCE 2018: Companies and organizations in an historical perspective

Organization is the result of a conscious effort to create channels of authority and communication in the productive activity of the company, as well as in the allocation of resources and the evaluation of their performance.

The organizational challenge typically emerges when a company achieves a certain quantitative threshold in terms of size, turning the need for organization into a key issue. Below this threshold, the internal dynamics of a company and the relationships among the actors which operate inside it are usually spontaneous, and don’t require formalization. In more recent times however, within the contemporary global and technological environment, small companies also face the issue of adopting an appropriate organizational structure.

How much does organizational design matter for a company? Can an inappropriate organization react promptly to changes in strategy?

Conference languages will be English and Italian.

Conference Dates: December 20-21 2018
Venue: Bocconi University, Milan
The deadline for submissions is September 20th, 2018.
