Also, business writer Anders Johnson recieved the first ever Buiness History Award and gave an award lecture.
Jews, Europe, and the business of culture
A new special issue of the journal Jewish Culture and History focuses on the intersection between Business history and Jewish studies. As pointed out by guest editors Benito Peix Geldart, Maja Hultman and Anders Houltz in the Introduction, the five included articles discuss different expressions of Jewish entrepreneurship and economic activities, and their effects and constraints, in modern Europe.
