CHORD 2024 On-line Seminars on the History of Retailing and Distribution
The Centre for the History of Retailing and Distribution invites submissions to its 2024 on-line seminars on ‘Retailing and Distribution History’: we welcome papers focusing on any aspect of retailing and / or distribution history and on any period or geographical area. We invite both experienced and new speakers, including students and / or speakers without an institutional affiliation. Potential speakers are very welcome to discuss their ideas with the organiser before submitting their proposal (please see contact details below).
We invite both 20-minute papers and 10-minute ‘work in progress’ presentations. All papers will be followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Seminars will take place online, and we anticipate that each seminar will include two or three papers.
