The 9th edition of the EBHA (European Business History Association) Summer
School will take place in Ancona (Italy) from Monday, September 4th to
Saturday, September 9th, 2017. The school aims at providing doctoral
students with an overview of relevant research results and of innovative
tools and methodologies in the field of Business History. It is organised
jointly by the European Business History Association (EBHA), the Università
Politecnica delle Marche and the Italian Association for Business History
(ASSI). Students will be accommodated in the beautiful town of Ancona
debating and discussing their research with leading international scholars. 

The title of the school will be Business History: Debates, challenges and
opportunities. The school will focus on theoretical, methodological and
practical issues which are of relevance for advanced research in business
history. The main aim of the school is to provide students with a full
understanding of the newest trends in research in the field and to provide a
friendly atmosphere in which to discuss their preliminary findings with
leading scholars as well as among their peers. In this respect, the program
features both lectures and seminars given by faculty and student
presentations of their research projects. Each student will have 20 minutes
maximum to present her/his project, stressing especially: research questions
and goals, methodology, sources, challenges and provisional outcomes. After
her/his presentation, each student will receive questions and comments from
other students and from faculty members (approx 15-20 minutes). 

The organisers will cover all local costs (accommodation in a double or
triple room and food), but participants are expected to pay their own travel
expenses. Participation will be limited to 15-20 PhD students.

Those interested in attending the summer school should send the following
documents by e-mail to the academic organiser Dr. Veronica Binda

project (not exceeding three pages); 3) (if possible) an example of their
work in progress, e.g. a draft chapter or a working paper (in any language).

participants will be selected from these applications and will be notified
by June 4th, 2017.
