CFP: Female Entrepreneurship in the Long 19th Century: Global Perspectives – Edited Collection and Workshop

Scholars who are working at the intersections of gender studies, entrepreneurship and global history would be interested in this call for an edited collection on Female Entrepreneurs in the Long Nineteenth Century: a Global Perspective. Read the original call from the editors, Dr Catherine Bishop (University of Sydney) and Dr Jennifer Aston (University of Northumbria), below:

This collection aims to move beyond trans-Atlantic and imperial frameworks to consider nineteenth-century female entrepreneurship as a global phenomenon. To this end we have gathered together a number of scholars working on disparate regions, from Brazil to Quebec, Luanda to Sydney, Russia to the UK.

We are seeking further chapters on Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South/Central America, focusing on the general theme of female money-making activities in the long 19th century. Our definition of entrepreneurship is broad, and includes penny-capitalist enterprises as well as larger concerns.

We aim to have a workshop to discuss chapters in Spring 2019 for submission to the publisher in October 2019. We have provisional interest from the editor of Palgrave Macmillan’s Economic History Series and we are keen to capitalise on this. Our timeline is as follows:

Final Date for Abstracts (c300 words) and brief biographies (c10 words): NOVEMBER 10, 2017

First draft of chapters: DECEMBER 1, 2018

Workshop:  SPRING 2019

Revised Chapters: AUGUST 1, 2019

Please send expressions of interest consisting of a brief biography (100 words) and abstract (300 words) to by 10 November 2017.
