This conference thus proposes to connect comparative economic history with European integration history: to what extent have European economies converged or diverged since 1945? What are some of the criteria to make such an assessment? How did these trends interact with or influence the European integration process? To what extent could they represent a challenge to European integration today? The conference will take place on 30 and 31 May 2019 at the University of Glasgow.
The main objective of the conference is to build an understanding of how policymakers and economic actors have used the past as a foundation for their decisions, how they created and discriminated among different interpretations of the past according to their preconceptions, and how they were conditioned by the experiences of their predecessors. PhD students, early career researchers, and confirmed researchers are invited to submit proposals. Applications should comprise a 1 page abstract/summary and short CV. We have some limited funds to support travel costs and accommodation of speakers. Deadline for proposals: 25th January 2019.
Interdependencies, Causation, and Synergies between Economic History and the History of Economics
Pre-ESHET YSI workshop
May 22, 2019 in Lille, France
Organised by: YSI History of Economic Thought and Economic History Working Groups
How do economic history and the history of economics complement but also constrain each other? To what degree should historians of economics care about recent research in economic history and vice versa? Can either discipline dispute the causality or responsibility claims of the other? This workshop aims at bringing together historians of economics and economic historians to foster a better understanding of each discipline and create potential synergies. Candidates should be interested in understanding how developments in economic thinking changed the course of economic history at crucial junctures, and the effects of specific historical events on economic thinking. We are calling for participants whose research combines both disciplines (as well as social and political history). While their research may fall more into either camp (the history of economics or economic history), participants should be interested in discussing how their work connects to the other field as well, and express an active interest in
The workshop will be led by professors Marc Flandreau (U. Pennsylvania) and Carolyn Biltoft (Graduate Institute, Geneva). YSI will provide travel stipends and accommodation during the workshop and the ESHET conference for selected candidates. To apply please fill out this form:

Social theorists from Max Weber to Jürgen Habermas have argued that power relations are among the defining characteristics of every society, along with culture and economic relations. The main theme of this conference, Technology and Power, seeks to interrogate the various roles technologies have played in the development of power relations in the past, in different parts of the world. Political power (local, state, and inter-state) is the most obvious of these, but relations of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, labour, age, and so on, also include elements of power. Technologies have instrumental, mediating, undermining, reinforcing, and constructive roles in all of these relations. Some technologies have been used by elites, others have served the relatively powerless.
