A weekly feature with a roundup of articles and other materials of interest to scholars of business and economic history
I am tired. Is anyone else tired? Even still, I am definitely going to this event from the Business History Collective next week, because I have been excited about it since we scheduled these things in February. I'd love to see you there:
- Tuesday, May 11, 9-11am EST: Twentieth-Century Chinese Business History (double feature) - feat. Ghassan Moazzin and Mengxing Yu, with papers on the Chinese electric lamp industry and the pulp and paper industry.
One of the many good things about virtual events is that many are recorded and you can microwave some popcorn and "catch up" on the ones you missed at a later date. My current queue looks like this:
This webinar from the American Historical Association on "Business History Today," feat. an all-star cast of Phil Scranton, Ken Lipartito, Philip Thai, Alexia Yates, and Bianca Murillo
This Business History Collective webinar from a couple weeks ago on How was the Manila trade financed?, presented by Juan Jose Rivas-Moreno)
The latest episode of Hagley History Hangouts with Gregory Hargreaves and James McElroy, on the late 20th century history of the American supermarket.
