About us

The Boletín de la Red de Estudios de Historia de Empresas (Business History Studies Network Bulletin) is issued every semester in Spanish.

The Bulletin contains two main sections –“Debates” and “Archives”- introducing new issues, topics and sources for the study of business history. It also includes a section on bibliographical reviews and current information on seminars, lectures, publications, dissertations and other field-specific materials.

Summary – Business History Studies Network Bulletin No.:

Business History Studies Network Bulletin No. 27 – December 2018


The Business History Studies Network (REDHE, by its acronym in Spanish) is pleased to be publishing  the twenty seven issue of its virtual bulletin. Divided in five sections, the bulletin presents a thorough review of recent business history publications and events in Latin America.

In the first section, Debates (pp. 2-36), Mario Cerutti (Universidad de Autónoma de Nuevo León, México) introduces the fourth chapter of his most recent book ‘Problemas, conceptos, actores y autores. La historia económica y empresarial en el norte de México (y en otras latitudes)’. The chapter, reproduced fully in the bulletin, presents short biographies and interviews with three top Latin American economic and business history researchers: María Inés Barbero (Argentina), Carlos Dávila (Colombia) and Carlos Marichal (México). Cerutti’s personal conversations with the authors introduce the readers to the personal academic life experiences of these three researchers.

Next section, New Publications (pp. 37-41), introduces to five books published in 2018. One on Juan Brittingham, a leader of Mexican industrialisation (Cerutti and Barragán, 2018). Three on Argentina: the foreign companies in the country since the 19th Century (Lanciotti and Lluch, 2018), a collection of essays on the new economic history of Argentina (Cortes Conde and Della Paolera, 2018), and a book on economic thoughts on agriculture (Hora, 2018). Last one a special number of the Centro de Estudios Económicos de la Empresa y el Desarrollo about multinationals and business groups in Argentina, Chile and Brazil.

The section Thesis (p. 42), presents a master thesis on the Uruguayan tire company submitted by Sebastian Sabini (Universidad de la República). The thesis presents the evolution of the company between 1935 and 2002, following its strategies. Resources (p. 43), calls the attention over the world bank group archives. Call for Papers and Events (pp. 44-54) promotes next year’s academic events in economic and business history. To close this section (pp. 53-54), the editors included a summary on the XXVI Economic History Conference of the AAHE.
