CFP: Panel at the Business History Conference 31 March-2 April 2011

20 05 2010

I am organizing a panel for the next Business History Conference,  St. Louis, Missouri 31 March-2 April 2011.

Proposed Panel Title: Banking in the History of North American Regions

The panel will deal with the history of banking in North America. Ideally, the panel would have four members, each presenting on a different region of the continent. My paper will be about Canada in the nineteenth century. The other papers might deal with banking in New England, California, the antebellum South, or some other region. The aim of the panel would be to explore what the regions had in common while emphasizing what made the banking history of each region distinctive.

If you are interested in being part of this panel, please contact me.
