The Ukrainian Catholic University in cooperation with the European Business History Association invite scholars and Ph.D. students of any relevant discipline to submit paper proposals in a broad range of topics related to the uses of the past by firms in Central-Eastern Europe (CEE). In the context of this workshop, we wish to approach the past as a resource, which is used or can be used by business organizations for their purposes in the present and the future. We understand history as performative interpretation, a tool that helps actors make sense of the past and present and build towards the future. We focus on uses of the past in CEE; however, case studies on other regions are also welcome in case they deepen our understanding of “uses of the past” by CEE enterprises.
Rent has been a major issue in economics for more than two centuries. Whether classical, Marxist, neoclassical, or the most recent institutionalist approaches, rent as a theoretical concept and empirical object has enjoyed remarkable attention. The contested and unpredictable nature of rent and its impact on economic indicators will continue to make it a popular topic for researchers.

This conference invites contributions addressing whether there were missing girls, and thus discriminatory practices unduly increasing female mortality in infancy and childhood, in historical Europe. In order to establish comparisons with other regions, papers studying non-European countries from a historical perspective are also welcome. This conference also encourages proposals that attempt to identify the type of families that were more likely to be involved in this kind of behaviour, as well as the factors that explain the potential variation in discriminatory practices. Similarly, this conference also welcomes contributions that explore the societal effects of these practices, thus contributing to the growing literature on the link between gender inequality and economic development. Lastly, although this event will primarily focus on sex ratios obtained from population censuses or vital statistics, it is also open to proposals using other sources (such as heights, household budgets, foundling hospitals, etc.) that may shed further light on these issues.
In this special issue, we invite new empirical and theoretical contributions in order to understand the status of gender perspectives within ongoing economic historical research in the Nordic region and elsewhere. What is the status of gender research and how is gender and intersectional theory used in the field – and with what results? Which new theoretical understandings have been introduced? Is research with a gender approach challenging or even changing the discipline of economic history? In addition, how do these perspectives contribute to the larger field of gender studies?
Following the recent sanitary events and the particular interest aroused in academia, mass media, and the general public, Investigaciones de Historia Económica/Economic History Research invites submissions for a special issue on the topic Epidemics in History. The editors believe in the relevance of the study on the effects of pandemics in the past in order to show how societies dealt with similar situations and the lessons that we can obtain in the present and the future. The special issue aims to include papers with a wide chronological and geographical coverage and a multidisciplinary approach with a special emphasis on the economic effects of pandemics in the past.
The Graduate Institute and a consortium of sixteen other institutions is launching a Europe-wide virtual seminar in Macroeconomic History. At a time when general confinement had led to university closures and widespread cancellations of seminar series, workshops and conferences, this initiative aims to keep the flow of intellectual debate active.
