CHORD welcomes proposals to a one-day workshop devoted to the relationship between retailing and institutions, from approximately 1400 to the present. The term 'institutions' is to be interpreted widely, and includes both institutions established by retailers and institutions that sought to influence, control, limit, or to do business with retailers. All methodological and disciplinary perspectives are welcome. Papers based on any geographical areas are also welcome.

  • Guilds and urban control

  • Retailers and the armed services

  • Central and local government

  • Retailers, charities and pressure groups

  • Trade, professional and consumer associations

  • Retailers and political associations

  • Retailers and the church

  • Trade unions and employees' associations
