The Southern Industrialization Project (SIP) invites paper proposals on Southern Industrial Entrepreneurship to be presented at its annual meeting, which will be held at Vanderbilt University on September 6, 2003. Topics might include: Group or Individual Biographies of Entrepreneurs, Business Histories, Entrepreneurship and Southern Society, Politics and Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship and Southern Distinctiveness, Race and Entrepreneurship, Gender and Entrepreneurship, Comparative Analyses of styles of Entrepreneurship (regional, temporal, etc.), Entrepreneurship as an Engine of Change, Entrepreneurship as Maintainer of the Status Quo, or other similar topics that link Southern entrepreneurship to industry (loosely defined.) Selected papers will be considered for publication in a volume of essays on Entrepreneurship in the series _New Directions in the History of Southern Economy_, to be published by the University of Missouri Press under the sponsorship of the Southern Industrialization Project.
Organized in 1996, the Southern Industrial History Project (SIP) seeks to foster a greater understanding of the history and culture of industrialization in the American South. SIP primarily consists of a discussion list of more than 100 academic and public historians with research interests that encompass many industries, eras, and geographic locations. The list operated for seven years from a Georgia Tech listserv but is currently migrating to H-Net. Each year we meet to hear scholarly papers and to propose methods for promoting research in Southern industrial history.
To apply, please send a single page CV and single page paper abstract to the address below.
Submission Deadline: June 1, 2003
