The European Association for Banking and Financial History (eabh) e.V.

bulletin

eabh bulletin

The bulletin is a forum for ‘the curious’ and new from eabh members’ archives and research related to their institutions’ history. Edited by Carmen Hofmann and Gabriella Massaglia, the bulletin promotes and writes about your topics, projects,  events, symposia, collections, exhibitions and new books.

The latest series of the bulletin focuses on ‘Finance & Architecture’, an association that is as old as the profession of banking itself. The great banking houses of Europe and North America have long sought to associate their banking prowess with representative architecture. Banks seek to inspire confidence, strength, resilience, and most importantly, trust in their clientele. The buildings in which banks house their operations are meant to reflect these values but the ways in which banks have done so is as varied as the banking houses themselves. Yet the storied and diverse history of banks and their buildings is also intimately connected to the development of technology as well as the cities in which these banks have emerged and gone on to flourish.

Forthcoming editions of the bulletin will put a spotlight on ‘Finance & Photography’, ‘Finance, Machines & Technology’ and ‘Finance, Posters & Advertisements’.

It is easy to contribute! Please be in touch via email for details.
