CfP: Exploring Gender, Human Capital, and Labour Intersections in Economic History, 9 – 11 October 2024, Winter School at Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, Germany

The Exploring Gender, Human Capital, and Labour Intersections in Economic History winter school is an interdisciplinary meeting of economists and historians focused on discussing the interplay between gender, human capital, and labour. To understand how these developed over the past centuries, it is necessary to understand how they are linked and interact with each other, as observing them in isolation provides only a partial picture. The winter school will provide a platform for scholars to share research, approaches, and methodologies for studying labour, gender inequalities, and the evolution of human capital. It comprises two days of academic presentations and a one-day methodological workshop. The methodological workshop consists of two parallel sessions: the first will explore the ways in which marginalized groups can be included in linked census datasets, while the second will provide insight into the processes of saving primary source material and establishing a digital archive.

CfP: "Profits, Dividends and Returns", Accepted Session, World Economic History Conference, 28 July - 1 August 2025, Lund, Sweden

This session explores profit, dividends, and returns over the 19th and 20th centuries. Organizers welcome papers addressing the issue at the country level or from a comparative perspective. Within this framework, potential research avenues are delineated by the examination of economic sectors, large versus small enterprises, domestic versus foreign entities, metropolitan versus colonial establishments, and innovative versus mature businesses. Perspectives that explore technological spillovers, financial cross-country effects, trade, and foreign-direct investments are also encouraged.

CfP "Methods and techniques towards a European historical local population database" workshop, Valencia, Spain, October 24-25, 2024

The reconstruction of geographic granular evidence in historical perspective is a significant issue affecting several relevant streams of literature. Reconstructing homogenous statistical units at the municipal level allows for a deeper understanding of local dynamics, at least for population, which is the immediate economic proxy to untangling long-run development patterns, as population movements are tightly linked to economic events and could lead as a result to the development of agglomeration effects in the long run. However, numerous political and administrative changes have affected territories, their inhabitants and, inevitably, the historical sources on which we historians draw to reconstruct population figures. Therefore, strategies are necessary to confront these changes and the problems they represent both when obtaining data from historical sources and when carrying out historical analyses based on it. In this regard, we can say that this type of research often involves reconciling the irreconcilable.


Thus, this workshop proposal aims at bringing together scholars from various disciplines interested in reconstructing historical figures of population and, when available, measures on other socio-economic aspects of society (such as employment or literacy) for European countries by introducing the pseudomunicipalities or constant borders approach that would allow for the use of such data from an intertemporal perspective. We believe that this could be a promising starting point for constructing a network devoted to the fine-grained reconstruction of European local population in the long run. Contributions that focus on methods or empirical applications regarding all European countries, regions and time periods are encouraged.


Keynote lectures will be delivered by Diego Puga, Professor of Economics at CEMFI, and David S. Reher, Universidad Complutense de Madrid.


There is no workshop fee. The organization will provide accommodation for one presenting author per paper. Meals are included, and there will be food and refreshments available during the breaks. Travel expenses cannot be covered.


Deadline for submission: May 17, 2024

CfP: Hidden Connections: Eastern Europe through a Comparative Lens - WEast 2024 Dublin Workshop, Dec 13-14

The economic history of Eastern Europe is sometimes written as that of an isolated, peripheral region. In this workshop, we want to emphasise the historical connections between Eastern and Western Europe, as well as to other regions of the world. By reassessing the transnational circulation of people, goods, ideas, techniques, diseases, institutions and other factors, this workshop aims to highlight innovative work that uses new archival data, advanced microdata, or techniques of causal analysis to offer a truly integrated East-West perspective. We also celebrate research that integrates insights and research techniques from multiple disciplines to redefine our understanding of Europe’s complex shared economic, industrial, ideological, and political past.



CfP "Planning and programming in European cooperation and integration: the past of a rejuvenated idea 1957-1992", European University Institute, Florence, 16-17.9.2024
Planning has come back in fashion. The climate crisis, the vicissitudes of the euro area and domestic national contexts indicate that planning is an important issue for policymakers and academics alike. In particular, the idea that the economy could be voluntarily organised, ex ante, has gained considerable traction in the past few years. The meaning of the term remains however evasive, multiple, at times even contradictory, and liable to provoke strong reactions both among its supporters and its opponents.

The aim of this conference is to explore the varied origins and practices about planning in a European context since 1945. We understand ‘planning’ in broad terms as attempts to coordinate economic policies and organise ex ante the economic development of a given jurisdiction (state or group of states). We also understand ‘European context’ in a broad sense, including not only the European Economic Community/European Union but also initiatives that aimed beyond its borders.

There are lively debates in both economic history and contemporary debates about the continued or new relevance of planning (Monnet, 2022). Similarly, the historiography of European integration is a very dynamic field that explored the issue of planning in different contexts (Christian, Kott and Matejka, 2018). What this conference intends to focus on is not only the development of ideas about planning but also importantly on the practices of planning in an international context.

What do national experiences in Europe and their comparison tell us about the
nature and practice of planning? What phenomena of transnational circulation of ideas and imitation between national experiences occurred after 1945 and how did they condition the ascending and descending phases of the planning age? To what extent was planning part of the development of the European Economic Community? What were the obstacles to planning in the EEC/EU? What role did Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) play in the debates on planning? How was the idea of planning/programming abandoned in the 1980s, both at national and international level?

Topics of papers presented at the conference may include, but are not limited to:

- Proposals and initiatives to develop planning/programming in a European context, both at national and transnational level
- Connections between the implementation of planning/programming at the national level and the international environment, intended as opportunity or constraint
- Connections between the development of planning/programming the democratic legitimacy of the EEC/EU
- The influence of schools of economic thought on the question of planning and programming in European economic and political cooperation and integration
- Proposals on planning/programming coming from transnational political networks including political fractions in the European Parliament or transnational European parties
- The role of academics and experts — in particular economists, lawyers, and social scientists — in conceptualising and informing the proposals, development and practice of European planning/programming
- The influence of national visions of programming/planning on European debates (from EEC member states as well as Eastern European countries)
- Non-state actors (political parties, businesses, trade unions) and their conception of the importance and role of planning/programming at European level
The conference focuses on a period running from the end of the Second World War to the 1992 Treaty of Maastricht. Contributions can focus on shorter, more specific periods, or span this entire time frame. Proposals may also deal with pre-1945 events and debates on European economic and monetary cooperation in that they contribute to shed light on the later period. Proposals may also deal with post-1992 events and debates, so long as they are clearly connected with developments from the previous period. We welcome different methodological approaches in dealing with the theme of the conference, including but not limited to biography, prosopography, text mining and network analysis. The conference finally encourages a conversation between different historiographical traditions, including the history of ideas, social history and economic history.

The conference - organized by the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre - will take place on 16-17 September 2024 at the European University Institute in Florence.

Eligibility and how to apply:

PhD students, early career researchers, and established researchers are invited to submit proposals.

Applicants should submit an abstract of no more than 500 words outlining their proposal, and a short CV by 15 May 2024 to Miriam Curci,, mentioning ‘Planning and Programming Conference’ in the headline. Selected applicants will be informed by late May 2024.

Please note that should your institution be unable to do so, conference funds are available to support your accommodation and travel expenses.

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


The call for sessions will close on March 15, 2024. Sessions should be submitted via the Congress website at Please note that unlike in past years, there will be ONLY ONE call for sessions. Decisions will be finalised in June 2024.


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.
