About the IAWBH

Our History

The IAWBH was founded at a scholarly conference in Montréal, Canada, in 2008, and has over 200 members from over 30 countries.

We coordinate a worldwide conference every two years (most recently  in Bordeaux, France in June 2018). During the non-conference year we hold a Masterclass (in 2019 these were held in London and Israel). Our members receive a newsletter and can participate in our LinkedIn group and in a network of their special interest (Special Interest Groups).
