CfP: Social Mobility in Preindustrial Europe, Bocconi University (Milan, Italy), 28-29 April 2022

Rates of social and economic mobility are notoriously difficult to measure properly – for today societies, and even more for preindustrial ones. This is why, for a long time, preindustrial social mobility has been the object more of speculation than of proper attempts at measurement and analysis. Only in recent years the situation has started to change, with some research groups finally rising to the task of exploring long-term trends in social mobility during the Middle Ages and the early modern period. Most of this new research has focused on Europe, also due to the exceptionally good and ancient historical sources available for many areas of that continent. The project SMITE (Social Mobility and Inequality across Italy and Europe 1300-1800), funded by the European Research Council, has also contributed to this renewal of interest by organizing a string of workshops and conference sessions on social mobility and inequality.

CfP: "The emergence of new markets", French Association of Economic History 2023 Congress, Lyon, 30-31 March 2023

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.

Deadline:Deadline: 28 February 2022

CfP "Magnifying Spaces of Capitalism: Sources and Data of a Transforming World, Doctoral and Early Career Researcher Workshop", 21st-22nd April 2022, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain)

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.

CfP “Technology-based and Technology-generated decisions”, International Committee for the History of Technology’s 49th Symposium 2022, Virtual Symposium

The 2022 International Committee for the History of Technology’s 49th Symposium will take place virtually. It will occur in 3 phases, each lasting two days. The 1st meeting will be in June (17, 18), the 2nd in September (24, 25), and the 3rd in October (15, 16). The Kranzberg Lecture will take place in June.

The general theme is “Technology-based and Technology-generated decisions”. Whereas technology-based decisions have a long history, technology-generated decisions of so-called artificial intelligence, AI, are on the horizon since the turn of the 21st century and might gain decisive influence within the next years. Which decisions we are willing to handle over to technology? How to define ethical guidelines for this development? The symposium aims to contribute to this discussion, based on a transnational perspective of the history of technology.

CfP "Women, Money and Markets (1600-1900)", 15-17 June 2022, Institute for Mediterranean Studies/FORTH, Rethymno, Crete

This annually-held conference addresses the role of women in consumerism, shopping, global trade, domestic trade, markets (literary and otherwise), currency, and varying practices of exchange. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature, bridging literature, material culture, gender studies, theatre and economic history, and aims to relate the debates of the period to modern-day issues about the presence and position of women in the economy, the market and the media.
