Business History in the Age of Modern Globalization

For the first time, we can really talk about business history around the WORLD because the focus of this session is on ALL the world’s regions rather than the usual triad (US, Europe, Japan). The plan calls for a considerable organizational effort, starting first with an important pre-conference meeting (tentatively scheduled for January 2017) that will allow scholars to reassess business history in a global world.
