General Electric History

Call for papers

In recent decades labor and business historians have begun to transform how we view and study the evolution of the modern corporation. We are editing a collection of essays drawing on the insights of new scholarship to illuminate the history of the General Electric Corporation (GE), a corporation that has had a unique and profound impact on our society, and, indeed, the world.

To complete our collection of essays, we are still looking for a few additional contributions. We are soliciting papers that focus on GE history and touch on (but are not limited to) the following themes: gender, globalization, technology and culture, community and corporate relations, race, politics, environment. If you are interested in submitting an essay, please contact Gerald Zahavi ( or Lisa Kannenberg (
