The Department of Economics at Trinity College Dublin seeks applications for two funded PhD studentships, as part of the Centre for Economics, Policy and History (CEPH), a new Government of Ireland-funded centre of excellence that links economic historians at Trinity College Dublin with Queen’s University Belfast. Successful candidates will be based in Dublin and, as part of the terms and funding of this scholarship, they will be expected to make an extended research visit to Belfast.
The two studentships are fully-funded for three years, covering all fees and providing a stipend. This stipend will support work towards a PhD, awarded on the basis of original research presented in a written thesis. The studentships are intended to support research into a substantive area of economic history under the supervision of one of the CEPH PIs (Prof Gaia Narciso, Prof Ronan Lyons, and Prof Marvin Suesse).
The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) welcomes submissions for the 2023 Tallinn Dissertation Prize in European Environmental History.

The XLII Annual Meeting of APHES welcomes paper and session proposals focusing on labour and social norms, irrespective of geographical and chronological frameworks. We particularly welcome papers that examine, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the evolution of work and the perception and organization of labour over time and in different geographies.
A 4-year Doctoral Research Scholarship in Economic History, starting in September 2023, is available at the Economic History Department of the University of Barcelona.
The PhD candidate will write a dissertation in the context of a research project on “State capacity in Latin America (1870-2020): indicators, causes and consequences”, coordinated by Drs. Sergio Espuelas and Alfonso Herranz-Loncan.
A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) in History is available at the Department of Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History (IAKH), University of Oslo.
The position is associated with the Research Group "History of Capitalism" , which offers exceptional opportunities to study the early modern and modern history of Europe in the world.
The conference “From Seas to Oceans” aims to explore the mutual influence between the Iberian and the Nordic worlds and how it contributed to the development of European and global connections in the Early Modern period. The conference is organized by SWESP –The International Research Network of Historical connections between Spain and Sweden– with the support of the Spanish Embassy in Sweden, the History Department at Uppsala University, the CEMAS (Centre for Maritime Studies, Stockholm University) and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year by the Electronic Bulletin of Economic History and the Greek Economic History Association (GEHA)
Recent research not only argues that female infanticide and the mortal neglect of female infants was more common in Modern Greece than previously acknowledged, but also that Greek parents continued to treat boys and girls differently throughout childhood (in terms of food and care). These discriminatory practices, arising from a strong son preference and girls’ inferior status, therefore unduly increased female mortality rates early in life and resulted in a significant number of “missing girls” during the 19th century and the fist decades of the 20th century.
The novelty of this argument, together with the problems that Greek historical sources pose, requires further research on these issues, so this conference invites proposals studying discriminatory practices against girls and women in general in Modern Greece. We encourage interdisciplinary discussion, so contributions from a wide range of disciplines (historians, ethnographers, demographers, economists, sociologists, etc.) using both qualitative and quantitative materials are welcome. Given the importance of child abandonment in the past, studies exploring whether sex was an important dimension in the decision to get rid of unwanted babies are also especially valuable.
