The inaugural conference of the Academic Association of Historians in Australian and New Zealand Business Schools (AAHANZBS) was held at The University of Sydney, 14-15 December 2009.

The symposium was organised on behalf of AAHANZBS by the Business and Labour History Group, The University of Sydney, with the financial support of the University of Sydney Business School. 

The inaugural conference of AAHANZBS provided an opportunity for researchers to present papers across a wide range of topics. The three main themes were:

  1. The role of historical research in developing theoretical perspectives in business and management;
  2. How historical research aids our understanding of contemporary issues in business and management;
  3. Teaching history in business and management schools.

The conference included both refereed and non-refereed streams. All refereed conference papers (full versions) were double-blind assessed by two anonymous referees. The authors retain copyright over, and take full responsibility for, their papers and abstracts.
