Interest Groups within the Business History Conference
In recent years, the Business History Conference has sprouted several interest groups that have coalesced around perceived needs. The first two, "Women in Business History" and "Business Historians at Business Schools," meet informally over lunch at the annual meeting to discuss issues in the profession and to network. The "Emerging Scholars" group began informally, but its leadership now constitutes one of the BHC standing committees. The focus is on introducing young scholars to research and teaching possibilities in the field of business history and to foster their integration into the BHC community.
