Walsh Professor Brings International Conference to Detroit

Professor and Chair of Walsh’s Economics and Finance Department John Moore, Ph.D., CPA, was recently elected president of The Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) during its 43rd annual international conference in Finland. Established in 1975, EBHS fosters interdisciplinary scholarship in business and economics, history and how historical perspective applies to current issues. Its members are an international community of historians, economists, business professionals, social scientists and others living in the United States, Canada, Western Europe and the Far East.

The 44th international EBHS conference will be held in Detroit in June 2019. “Many of my EBHS colleagues have said Detroit will be a fascinating location for the conference,” said Moore. “There was strong enthusiasm among members to travel here.”

Moore attended his first EBHS conference in Portugal in 2010, after which he published an essay in the EBHS scholarly journal, Essays in Economic & Business History and was awarded Best Published Journal Article by a New Author (2011). He joined EBHS that year.

The keynote speaker for the 2019 EBHS conference will be Paul Ballew, Vice President and Global Chief Data & Analytics Officer of Ford Motor Company, who was also a Walsh adjunct instructor in the 1980s. “We are excited to have Paul as our speaker. He is a tremendous scholar and embodies the balance between a practical career and significant intellectual contribution, which aligns with Walsh values,” said Moore.

The conference will be held at the Hotel Fort Shelby and Moore will encourage his students to attend. “Having your eyes opened to the wider world is an important part of the educational experience,” he said.
