Economic history has already examined the opening of new markets in the perspective of more general research on the notion of markets and their concrete functioning. The exploration of the appearance of new products, technical innovations, and the evolution of consumption, transportation, and distribution modes contributed to our understanding of how new markets are created, conquered and maintained over time.
The next AFHE Congress aims to focus attention on this very moment of emergence, its causes, manifestations and consequences, from antiquity to the present day.

The Greek Economic History Association, the Department of Political Science and History of Panteion University and the National Hellenic Research Foundation are organising the 4th International Conference in Economic and Social History, titled “Varieties of Capitalism in the Mediterranean (18th-20th century)”. Originally planned for 2020, the conference will be held between 29 September and 1 October 2022. The conference is planned as an in-person event to be held on Athens.
The Young Scholar Initiative (YSI) Economic History Working Group and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid are organizing a two-day workshop on April, 21st-22nd. The theme will be "Magnifying Spaces of Capitalism: Sources and data of a Transforming World".
This two-day workshop seeks to provide an experimental space for the sound confrontation of various empirical studies painting better images of institutional and structural changes at heart in the development of early forms of capitalism. Following a successful first workshop that essentially discussed issues related to considering multiple scales of analysis in the historical study of economic phenomena, this second edition will primarily facilitate a discussion on the various and multifaceted sources best suited to facilitate research in the history of capitalism.
The Institute of Social Sciences (ICS) and the Lisbon School of Economics and Management (ISEG) of the University of Lisbon invite submissions to the conference committee on the theme of “Giving Credit to Dictatorship: Authoritarian Regimes and Financial Capitalism in the Twentieth Century”.
The results of this call for research papers will be presented at Prato during the 54th Study Week (May 14th-18th, 2023)

The Fondazione Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica “F. Datini” and the European School for Training in Economic and Social Historical Research (ESTER) announce
their sixth jointly-organized Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar for economic and social historians on 8-13 May 2022, in Prato (Italy) on:
The topic of the seminar is closely related to the theme of the congress organized yearly by the "F. Datini" International Institute of Economic History and devoted in 2022 to The Knowledge Economy. Innovation, Productivity and Economic Growth. The 2022 Datini-Ester seminar will deal with Economic Innovations. We particularly welcome papers on technical and institutional innovations and their impact on the economic output. The seminar will not deal directly with the production factors, but with the effects on the productivity and efficiency of the economic system deriving from changes in the mix of the inputs. Our purpose is to clarify the role of technical and institutional changes in different economies and discuss the possibility of measuring their effects on gross product.
The Fifth International Conference on Strikes and Social Conflicts will take place in Rotterdam at the headquarter of the Dutch Trade Union Confederation (FNV) from 22-24 June 2022. Its objective is to discuss and assess the changing character of strikes and social conflict over the course of capitalist history. The focus is on the lessons learned from the approaches and strategies of trade unions and social movements in terms of responses to the social and economic changes that accompanied globalisation. Among the specific questions to be addressed are the following:
· What have been the responses of the working class to change under globalisation?
· What has the impact been on the capacity of social movements to conduct struggles and what are the key observations and lessons learnt?
· How have trade unions responded to the changing environment? Have they made suitable adaptations to labour organisation and strike methods to assist in representing the interests of workers?
· What are the trends of global and national struggles over the short and long term and what are the prospects for future struggles?
· What have been the convergences and divergences of social struggles during the 20th and 21st centuries?
