"F. Datini" Prato International Institute of Economic History Foundation: Human Solvency - Historical Research Prize

The Fondazione Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica “F. Datini” bans the Human Solvency Historical Research Prize 2024 1. The prize aims to enhance the historical research of scholars who focus their investigations on the question of economic solvency considered in all its implications, starting from those of the languages, the theological, philosophical and legal lexicons that have structured concepts key such as poverty, common good, public debt, taxation, monetary institution. The intention is to promote a long-term approach by evaluating research and analysis of historical phenomena that developed between the 11th and 18th centuries.


Call for WEHC 2025 Session Proposals - Deadline Extended to 15 March 2024

Call for sessions for the World Economic History Congress, to be held in Lund, Sweden, from 28 July to 1 August 2025. The text of the call and theme appears below, along with instructions for submission. Please note that:


1. The deadline for submitting sessions has been extended to March 15th, 2024. Make sure have submitted your proposals by that date. Sessions should be submitted via the Congress website at

 2. Sessions proposals do not need to include complete lists of speakers at the time of submission. Proposals need to include a clear theme and and and indicative list of participants, but as in previous years the list of speakers can be finalised closer to the Congress.

 3. While there will only be ONE main call for sessions during this Congress owing to impact of the pandemic on planning, the Executive Committee may leave room on the schedule for late breaking sessions on topics of current relevance. This will be assessed by the EC in the 6-9 months leading up to the Congress.


The 20th World Economic History Congress will convene from 28 July – 1 August 2025 in Lund, Sweden. The theme for the Congress is "Equality and Sustainability Challenges", which highlights some of the central issues facing humanity today and also connects to a broad and diverse range of historical problems. To address both the challenges and to find insights from the historical record for that endeavour, a range of perspectives will be necessary.


The IEHA has a particularly strong desire to attract sessions related to this theme. However, submissions are welcome on the economic and social histories of all places and periods, and on the exploration of varied sources and methods, and on the theory and uses of economic history itself. We also invite members to employ and analyse diverse strategies for representing the past.


Sessions may be proposed by any member of the international economic history community, whatever their institutional affiliation or status, as well as by scholars in related disciplines. Given the diversity of our membership, we will consider any submission that advances the study, teaching and public presentation of economic history. We welcome panel proposals that highlight scholarship emerging from economic history, business history, financial history, demographic history, environmental history, global and world history, social history, urban and agrarian history, gender studies, material culture, methodological approaches to historical research, history of economics and economic thought, science and technology studies, and other related fields.


The programme of the Lund Congress will be organised on the same principles as previous Congresses. The 5-day Congress will have approximately 180 sessions, with each day divided into time blocks of 90 minutes each (two before lunch and two after lunch). As in the past, it will be possible to combine two sessions into larger coherent units.


The session proposals should contain:• Name, title, affiliation, and contact information of the session organiser• Possible co-organisers (optional)• Title of the session• Description of the session’s aim, contribution, and relevance (max 5,000 characters with blanks)• Potential researchers (and their affiliations) to invite to the session or those already secured

Session Proposal "Unearthing the Roots of Inequality: Exploring Land Property Dynamics (from Early Modern times and onwards)", World Economic History Congress (WEHC) 28 July-1 August 2025, Lund, Sweden

While inequality has played a pivotal role in shaping societies and economies worldwide, many authors have argued the importance of studying its historical evolution in order to have a deeper comprehension of its dynamics and determinants (Milanovic et al. 2011; Piketty 2013). Until recently in industrialized regions, and still today in many countries in the Global South, agriculture, and therefore land, was the main source of rents, income and wealth. This session seeks to delve into the intricate web of historical dynamics that influenced land property arrangements from Early Modern times and onwards. Our objective is to foster a comprehensive understanding of the manifold factors that contributed to the often-glaring disparities in land ownership during this transformative period. The proposed session aims to provide a nuanced exploration of the theme by employing a variety of methodologies and case studies, each offering unique insights into the complexities of land property inequality. We contend that the roots of modern land property arrangements can be traced back to this era, and understanding this historical context is essential for comprehending contemporary disparities.

CfP: "Rethinking the History of Global Capitalism", Center on Global Inequalities, Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), Rio de Janeiro, 13-15 March 2024

The conference we are organizing in Rio de Janeiro urges scholars to rethink capitalism’s history from the vantage point of this new historical moment and to consider what are the most promising theoretical formulations, methodological approaches, and historical framings to define capitalism, identify its drivers, shed light on its mechanisms, periodize its cycles, incorporate previously neglected spaces or processes, and offer a prognosis of its current reconfiguring. While traditional analyses of capitalism’s history were centered on Europe, the United States, or the North Atlantic, new strands of scholarship recognize that such a narrow lens fails to capture the complexity of the global economy and its history.
