The legacy4reuse workshop aims to gather existing expertise on legacy collections in social and economic history in order to find answers to four questions related to the sustainability requirement.

CfP 5th Workshop on Business History in Central and Eastern Europe: "Business Cooperation in the History of Central and Eastern Europe", Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, 27-28 October 2023

Business cooperation has been a vital component of economic development throughout history. From ancient merchants forming trade networks to modern multinational corporations, cooperation has allowed for sharing of resources and expertise to mobilize assets to achieve business goals. Business historians accumulated many examples of how cooperative business ventures have facilitated the exchange of goods, the expansion of markets, and the creation of new industries. By working together, businesses can pool their resources and knowledge, overcome obstacles, and increase their chances of success.

Cooperation has been a key factor in driving business innovation and growth. From joint ventures and strategic alliances to mergers and acquisitions, businesses have utilized a variety of cooperative arrangements to achieve their goals. In the Middle Ages, guilds provided a framework for skilled artisans to collaborate and mobilize resources, and protect their social interests. During the industrial revolution, corporations emerged as a means for investors to pool capital and resources to finance ambitious projects. Firms also cooperate with the aim of controlling markets and limiting exposure to competition, including trade associations that helped introduce technical standards and shared understandings within an industry or national and international cartels that emerged in the late 19th century and have been legal in many countries until the late 20th century.

CfP: "Environment, Energy and Economy in the Black Sea Region," The Center for Governance and Culture in Europe (GCE-HSG), Constanţa, Romania, 14-16 September 2023

The rich and complex history of the Black Sea Region is very much entangled with struggles and conflicts over its resources and with empires and nation-states' efforts to manage them. Even currently, international energy, grain, and transportation crises caused by the Russian war on Ukraine are closely connected to the Black Sea. In addition to the obvious energy and economic instability, the war creates numerous ecological challenges and is extremely harmful to the environment. These events and threats in the region create a growing demand for platforms for multidisciplinary analysis and expertise. By examining the region's past and present through various lenses, including politics, governance, economics, social justice, and technology, the conference will contribute to a more comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the region's development.

CfP "Mining Mobilities across the Globe. Labour, Science, and Knowledge Circulation in Mining (15th-21st century)", European Labour History Network, Uppsala, Sweden, 11th-13th June 2024
The Labour In Mining - Working Group is glad to announce its participation in the 5th conference of the European Labour History Network - Uppsala, Sweden, 11th-13th June 2024 (https://socialhistoryportal.org/elhn/conference-2024).
 
The LiM WG call for paper "Mining Mobilities across the Globe. Labour, Science, and Knowledge Circulation in Mining (15th-21st century)" is open until June 30, 2023. 
 
CfP "Centers, Peripheries, Networks. People, goods, and ideas on the move in economic history and the history of economic thought, Department of Political Sciences and International Relations, University of Palermo, 19-21 October 2023

CfP: 23η συνάντηση Ελλήνων ιστορικών οικονομικής σκέψης

Η ετήσια συνάντηση των Ελλήνων Ιστορικών Οικονομικής Σκέψης διοργανώνεται φέτος με θέμα: Οικονομικές κρίσεις. Θεωρία, Ιστορία και πολιτικές αντιμετώπισης, στις 16 και 17 Ιουνίου (Παρασκευή και Σάββατο) 2023 στις εγκαταστάσεις του Οικονομικού Τμήματος του Πανεπιστήμιου Θεσσαλίας στο Βόλο.

CfP: Reconstructing and Reimagining the Family: Health sciences and welfare on families in Southeastern Europe (1945 -1989), École Française d’Athènes, Athens, 8 September 2023

The workshop aspires to enrich and nuance our understanding of post-war visions of and approaches to the family through an original geographical and analytical lens. On the one hand, it will chart new research on the countries of the post-war Southeastern Europe (Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Romania and Turkey), which are understudied in comparison to Western European countries, and which are rarely examined together, owing to their different political systems and social policies. On the other hand, through the concept of health, a notion that was broadened in the post-war period to encompass not only the physical and mental, but also the social, the workshop embarks on a combined exploration of medical and social sciences, along with welfare professions, in shaping discourses and undertaking action on families.

CfP: "The European space. Geo-economic balances and State powers in the long run", Department of Economic and Social History and Geographical Sciences - Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore – Milan, Italy, 22-24 June 2023

The Italian Society of Economic Historians (SISE) and the “Mario Romani” Department of Economic and Social History and Geographical Sciences - Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy), welcome paper and session proposals to the conference “The European space. Geo-economic balances and State powers in the long run”, that will be held at the Catholic University of Milan on June 22-24, 2023. 

CfP: "Διοικητικός, οικονομικός και ιδεολογικός δοσιλογισμός στην κατεχόμενη Ελλάδα και η μεταπολεμική απονομή της δικαιοσύνης", Δίκτυο για τη Μελέτη των Εμφυλίων Πολέμων, Θεσσαλονίκη, 23-25 Ιουνίου 2023

Έχουν περάσει δεκαοκτώ χρόνια από τη διεξαγωγή του διεθνούς συνεδρίου στη Σαμοθράκη με θέμα τον δοσιλογισμό, καρπός του οποίου υπήρξε η έκδοση του τόμου «Εχθρός εντός των τειχών»: Όψεις του Δωσιλογισμού στην Ελλάδα της Κατοχής. Είναι αυτονόητο ότι το ζήτημα της συνεργασίας με τον κατακτητή στα κατεχόμενα εδάφη κατά τη διάρκεια του Β΄ Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου δεν έχει χάσει την ερευνητική δυναμική του και νέες μελέτες έχουν προστεθεί έκτοτε τόσο στην ελληνική όσο και στη διεθνή ιστοριογραφία. Με τα φώτα του ενδιαφέροντος να πέφτουν περισσότερο στον ένοπλο δοσιλογισμό, κάτι που άλλωστε είχε προτάξει και ο νομοθέτης για την εκδίκαση και την τιμωρία αυτών των νέων εθνικών εγκλημάτων από ειδικά δικαστήρια, άλλες πτυχές αυτού του πολυσύνθετου φαινομένου δεν έχουν τύχει έως τώρα της δέουσας προσοχής.

Με βάση το παραπάνω σκεπτικό διοργανώνεται συνέδριο το οποίο επιδιώκει να εστιάσει στον διοικητικό μηχανισμό που λειτούργησε υπό συνθήκες ξένης κατοχής. Στόχος του είναι να εξετάσει την πολυεπίπεδη δημόσια διοίκηση (ανώτερη και κατώτερη δημοσιοϋπαλληλία, αστυνομικές υπηρεσίες/χωροφυλακή, δικαστικές αρχές, εκπαίδευση, Εκκλησία, δήμοι, κοινότητες, νομαρχίες, φορείς και θεσμοί του δημοσίου κ.λπ.) μέσα από το πρίσμα της συνεργασίας με τους κατακτητές στο πλαίσιο αφενός της ενάσκησης των καθηκόντων των στελεχών της διοίκησης και αφετέρου ως κρατικών λειτουργών δοσιλογικών κυβερνήσεων. 

CfP: International Conference "Greek Romanian relations from the decline of the Ottoman Empire to the end of the Cold War era (1821-1989)" Thessaloniki, 22-24 November 2023

The Department of Balkan Slavic and Oriental Studies (University of Macedonia), the Faculty of History and Geography (Ștefan cel Mare University of Suceava), and the Balkan History Association are organizing an international conference on 22-24 November in Thessaloniki, Greece about Greek-Romanian relations from the decline of the Ottoman Empire to the end of the Cold War era (1821-1989). The conference is addressed to all academics, including young scholars, dealing with a topic related to the political, economic, cultural, and social relations of the two countries in the 19th and 20th centuries. Researchers may submit proposals on any relevant topic about the two countries during this period.

CfP Conference "Gender discrimination in Modern Greece", Norwegian Institute, Athens, 26 June 2023

Recent research not only argues that female infanticide and the mortal neglect of female infants was more common in Modern Greece than previously acknowledged, but also that Greek parents continued to treat boys and girls differently throughout childhood (in terms of food and care). These discriminatory practices, arising from a strong son preference and girls’ inferior status, therefore unduly increased female mortality rates early in life and resulted in a significant number of “missing girls” during the 19th century and the fist decades of the 20th century.

The novelty of this argument, together with the problems that Greek historical sources pose, requires further research on these issues, so this conference invites proposals studying discriminatory practices against girls and women in general in Modern Greece. We encourage interdisciplinary discussion, so contributions from a wide range of disciplines (historians, ethnographers, demographers, economists, sociologists, etc.) using both qualitative and quantitative materials are welcome. Given the importance of child abandonment in the past, studies exploring whether sex was an important dimension in the decision to get rid of unwanted babies are also especially valuable.
