This conference is an interdisciplinary meeting aimed at bringing together scholars from Appalachian State University (Boone, NC) with scholars from other universities in North Carolina, the surrounding states, and abroad. We have already hosted ten of these meetings in the past, which have been very successful. Our past keynote speakers have included Philip Hoffman, John Wallis, Jeremy Black, Peter Lindert, and Deirdre McCloskey. This year’s speaker will be Dr. James Robinson, a University Professor in the Harris School of Public Policy (University of Chicago).
H-Business is the digital network for the Business History Conference, an international organization devoted to the study of business enterprise and organization and of all aspects of the interactions of business with society, government, and culture in a historical context.
