Coleman Prize Panel at the ABH-GUG Conference

27 05 2016


I am currently attending the joint meeting of the Association of Business Historians and the Gesellschaft für Unternehmensgeschichte e.V. , which is taking place in Berlin (see image of venue above). One of the highlights of the annual ABH conference is the panel where finalists for the Coleman Prize for the best PhD dissertation in business history present on their research. Here are this year’s finalists.

Michael Aldous (Queen’s Management School, UK) Avoiding ‘negligence and profusion’: The ownership and organization of Anglo-Indian trading firms, 1813 to 1870

Christopher Phillips (University of Leeds, UK) Managing Armageddon: the science of transportation and the British Expeditionary Force, 1900-1918

Brian O’Sullivan (University of London, UK) The Transformation of Merchant Banking, 1914 to 1939
