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

05-04-2024 10:46

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.


Target audience:

 This workshop is specifically designed to engage faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and advanced PhD candidates who are deeply involved in the study of economic history, historical political economy, and geography. Our call for papers welcomes work on all countries, historical periods, and methodologies, as long as it retains a significant focus on Central or Eastern Europe.
