Call for Papers to Special Issue “Where Have All the Business Women Gone? Female Entrepreneurship in the long 20th Century”

We invite scholars to contribute to the special issue that will examine changes in female entrepreneurship over the twentieth century and the factors explaining these shifts. In the special issue, we define entrepreneurship deliberately broadly to capture the different manifestations of female entrepreneurship in the past. We define female entrepreneurs as women who were taking the risk and making business decisions on their own account to create new goods, services and ideas in the market under uncertainty, either as co-workers in family businesses, solo self-employed, employers, or innovators (Aston and Bishop 2020).

Call for Research Papers 2023-2025: "Risk Management, Insolvency, and Bankruptcy in the Pre-Modern World (13th-18th Centuries)", Fondazione Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica Francesco Datini

The economic history of pre-modern risk and its management is undergoing a scholarly resurgence stimulated by active interdisciplinary engagement with legal, social, and cultural histories. The three concepts of 'risk', 'insolvency', and 'bankruptcy' are central to this topic, providing ample scope for contributions across medieval and early modern Europe and multiple opportunities for comparative links that encompass the Islamic world and the European colonial experiences.

The focus of this Datini Study Week is the interface between the normative aspect of risk, insolvency, and bankruptcy, and their practical implementation as investigated through analyses of daily practices and the tools and strategies of risk management. Particular attention will be paid to the regulation of financial transactions within states, across political borders, and at the intersection of different legal systems. The conceptual framework we propose is one that acknowledges the connection of insolvency and bankruptcy to both 'financial' and 'economic' risks, taking into consideration the analytical separation that exists between the two and how practical solutions for their management overlap.
