CfP: 48th Economic and Business History Society Conference "Building Bridges in Economic and Business History", Porto, Portugal, 24-27 May 2023

The 48th Economic and Business History Society annual conference will be held in Porto, Portugal, on May 24-27, 2023, in partnership with the Arca Comunis Spanish Network of Fiscal History Projects and invites submissions to the conference committee on the theme of Building Bridges in Economic and Business History. At the most recent World Economic History Congress held in Paris, in July 2022, several strong appeals were made to foster interdisciplinary approaches with different areas and connect different historiographies. The organizing committee invites proposals that consider this theme. While the committee will give some preference to papers and panels that fit this theme, the conference committee will also take into consideration papers and panels that engage topics concerned with economic and business history widely construed, including financial and management history and history of economic thought.

CfP: Cologne FRESH Meeting 2023 "Historical political economy and long-run development", University of Cologne, 24-25 May 2023
Political economy has recently been described as the methodology of economics applied to the analysis of political behavior and institutions. Using history as a laboratory to contribute to political-economic theory and empirics has proven immensely valuable. This encompasses the use of historical data to study institutions and human behavior in the historical context but also to assess the validity of theories in economics and political sciences.
This two-day FRESH workshop will be held in person at the University of Cologne, Germany on May 24-25, 2023. The purpose is to create the opportunity for graduate students and early stage researchers to present and discuss their work in an environment especially focused on constructive feedback and support. The keynote speaker for this meeting will be Sascha Becker, Xiaokai Yang Chair of Business and Economics at Monash University. 
CfP: Conference "Economic thought and the making of the euro: intellectual patterns and policymaking in European integration (1950s-1990s)", European University Institute (Fiesole, Italy), 27-28 April 2023

The European integration process and its institutions have been home to several strands of economic ideas, including Keynesianism and its historical evolutions; the neo-mercantilist school; social-oriented approaches; and market-oriented and neoliberal policy options, to name but a few (Slobodian and Plehwe 2019; Stiegler 2019; Ventresca 2021; Warlouzet 2018; Young 2018). The aim of this conference is to explore the development, circulation, discussion and confrontation of economic ideas that contributed to shape the setting up of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) throughout the second half of the twentieth century.

CfP for the International Conference "Branding Mediterranean Europe: Tourism, Transport, and National Identity, 1945-1990", Institute for Mediterranean Studies, Rethymno, Crete, 8-10 June 2023

In the last 60 years, the number of tourists in European Mediterranean countries has multiplied exponentially. In these countries, tourism is one of the largest service industries, therefore building a successful, destination brand is of major concern for the economy. It has also, however, societal and ideational consequences. Competing for the same ‘product’ of tourism on a global scale forms a huge part of nation branding. The narrative and imagery of a country’s attractions feeds into the construction and revamping of national identities. In this sense, tourism can become a map to guide our study of discursive, ideational and cultural changes in Mediterranean Europe, particularly in the period from 1945-1989 but also understand the impact of these discourses on cultural identity; for each one of the countries and the history of Southern Europe as a whole. Management and tourism scholars have long investigated the economic and branding implications of this phenomenon, while in recent years, anthropologists and sociologists have discovered the value of the study of tourism. Yet, the historical depth of their approaches is typically quite limited. We are interested in addressing this lacuna in the period from 1945-1990.

CfP: Explorations in Economic History Workshop on Wealth and Income Inequality Around the World, Chicago, 6-7 October 2023

The Explorations in Economic History Workshop on Wealth and Income Inequality Around the World will meet in person on Friday and Saturday, October 6-7, 2023, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
Our goal is to assemble an outstanding set of papers on historical wealth and income inequality around the world. Papers may focus on a single country or on multiple countries. We plan to accept up to eight papers, which would be published in a special issue of Explorations in Economic History in 2024. The special issue will be edited by Karen Clay and Ralf Meisenzahl.

CfP: "Economic Exchanges", Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar 2023, Prato, Italy, 14-20 May 2023

The Fondazione Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica “F. Datini” and the European School for Training in Economic and Social Historical Research (ESTER) announce their eighth jointly-organized Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar for economic and social historians on 14th-20th May 2023, in Prato (Italy). The topic of the seminar is “Economic Exchanges”.

The topic of the Datini-Ester seminar is closely related to the theme of the congress yearly organized by the "F. Datini" International Institute of Economic History and devoted in 2023 to Alternative Currencies. Commodities and Services as Exchange Currencies in the Monetarized Economies of the 13th to 18th Centuries. The 2023 Datini-Ester seminar will deal with Economic Exchanges. We particularly welcome papers on the exchange of goods and services, on the role of markets, monies, trade, transaction costs and institutional contexts, which might foster market integration or, alternatively, constrain economic performance. Our purpose is to clarify the role of economic exchange and markets in past economies. Papers can cover any relevant aspect and any period from Antiquity until today.

Extended deadline abstracts 15 November 2022.

CfP: “The Relevance of Business History”, EBHA 2023 Congress, Oslo, Norway, 22-24 June 2023

The organizers of the European Business History Association's 2023 congress challenge you to reflect on how the future relevance of business history can and should be developed. We encourage papers, panels sessions and roundtable discussions dealing with the challenges facing the field of business history in terms of its academic, societal, and educational relevance.

CFP: "European Energy Shortages during the Short Coal Age (1860-1960)", Online workshop, 1 February 2023

The proposed workshop will target the period of repeated fuel shortages in Europe from roughly 1860 to 1960 – the century during which coal supplied more than 50 % of all energy in Europe. Coal consumption and prices show big fluctuations in European coal markets during this period, creating a classical “shortage” situation. Yet researchers have so far not addressed the nature of European coal shortages sufficiently. In both scholarly and recent public debates coal shortages remain largely overshadowed by the oil shocks of the 1970s. This gap calls for interdisciplinary cooperation in order to assess the story of repeated energy crises in Europe. The announced workshop is planned for 1 February 2023 and it is going to be held online. We invite scholars to reflect together upon coal shortages, their manifold faces and outcomes, during the centenarian apogee of King Coal’s rule in Europe. The event aims to bring together researchers with different disciplinary backgrounds, such as history, energy studies, international relations, the technological and environmental humanities, geography, economics, media studies and anthropology. After the workshop, we plan to turn its papers into a special issue for a major peer-reviewed academic journal, or, alternatively, into an edited volume.

CfP: "Writing Global History: Perspectives from Global South", Online workshop, 12-14.1.2023

Global history is emerging as a significant perspective in contemporary history writing. This approach examines the transnational networks through which human societies emerge as interactive global communities. Its increasing relevance can be attributed to its explicit focus on transnational relations; transcending euro-centric dominance; and exploring interconnections between and among (but not limited to) regions, communities, and commodities across historical periods. In the process global history seeks to question binaries like the north-south, micro-macro, local-global, empire-colony, and other asymmetric dependencies. However, in practice, it often reproduces them. At present, the acute economic, political, and rapidly accelerating climate crisis has further accentuated global asymmetries and exacerbated fault lines in the practices of global history. Perspectives from Global South provides a crucial vantage point to map and respond to this widening gap. This workshop, by focusing on perspectives from Global South, attempts to initiate discussions on these concerns.

Call for Sessions: 6th biennial conference of the European Rural History Organization (EURHO), Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 11-14 September 2023

The Rural History 2023 conference continues the tradition of the previous Rural History conferences held in Bern, Girona, Leuven, Paris, Uppsala aiming to promote a scientific discussion on new research on rural history in a broad sense by bringing together researchers dealing with different regions, different periods and from different theoretical and methodological traditions.

In accordance with this, the conference is open for research on all aspects on the history of the countryside in Europe and its interaction with other parts of the world throughout time. We welcome participation from different academic subjects dealing with history, archaeology, geography, economic history, economics, sociology, ethnology, anthropology, development studies, gender studies, environmental history, historical demography, science and technology history, colonial history, global history, etc.) presenting and discussing new research and thereby contributing to expanding our knowledge on the rural history of Europe and beyond. Our conference is also a great opportunity to bring into discussion contemporary concerns regarding rurality, and to highlight ways we could contribute to the safeguarding of living heritage

CfP: Conference "Worlds Apart? Futures of Global History", 25-26 May 2023, Vienna

This international conference seeks to discuss possible paths for the future of global history. How can the field live up to its emancipatory potential, how can its approaches and methods be pluralized, how do we address the more pressing topics of global inequality and poverty, how do we strive for a consequent decolonization, and how can a decentralized and entangled practice of global history be achieved (Mignolo, 2007; Bhambra, 2014; Grosfoguel, 2007; Epple, 2018; Adichie, 2019)? With these questions at hand, we would like to center stage the perspectives and experiences of scholars from societies that are still at the margins of global history. We therefore invite scholars, artists, and writers whose histories and epistemologies have been sidelined or excluded from debates about our global past to chart the pivots of a new global history in the plural. The aim of this conference is to discuss and promote ways toward a more open and multicentered study of global history. However, the conference is not limited to the field’s research and writing practices, but also problematizes who its (current and future) practitioners and audiences are, addressing the stark imbalance of gender, race, and class within the discipline. While the workshop does not attempt to provide final answers for a remake of the field, it offers the opportunity to suggest, reflect, and sketch new avenues for a fairer global history that includes a broader and more diverse authorship and an expansion of its methodological, narrative, and conceptual repertoire.
