CfP: XLII APHES Conference "Labour and social norms", University of Porto, 16-17 June 2023

The XLII Annual Meeting of APHES welcomes paper and session proposals focusing on labour and social norms, irrespective of geographical and chronological frameworks. We particularly welcome papers that examine, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the evolution of work and the perception and organization of labour over time and in different geographies.

CfP: SWESP 3rd International Workshop "From Seas to Oceans. Nordic and Iberian Worlds in the Early Modern Period", Stockholm University, 8-9 May 2023

The conference “From Seas to Oceans” aims to explore the mutual influence between the Iberian and the Nordic worlds and how it contributed to the development of European and global connections in the Early Modern period. The conference is organized by SWESP –The International Research Network of Historical connections between Spain and Sweden– with the support of the Spanish Embassy in Sweden, the History Department at Uppsala University, the CEMAS (Centre for Maritime Studies, Stockholm University) and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

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.

CfP: 2nd International Congress on Business History "Crises, Transitions and Resiliencies: New views on companies in France and in the French speaking world", Paris (France), 15-16 June 2023

In France and in the French-speaking world, companies, like their counterparts in the rest of the world, have been experiencing crises and profound transformations in recent years. The Covid-19 pandemic, which has developed in a lightning fashion since the beginning of 2019, has given rise, as it does after every crisis, to numerous analyses on the changes in the economic world. These questions have been rekindled and sharpened, particularly in Europe, by the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, which, in particular, is dealing serious blows to the world trade system and, through it, to the globalization of the years 2000-2010. As always, many commentators have wondered and continue to wonder whether the 'world after' will be the same as before.

CfP: Cambridge World History Workshop (Lent 2023)

The workshop welcomes contributions that give attention to global historical perspectives. We welcome, amongst others, presentations that focus on migration, race, gender, empire, environment, networks, medicine, science and technology, colonial and postcolonial history, transnational history, and comparative history. We encourage presenters to consider their research within the broad framework offered by world history to allow for a productive discussion across various academic sub-fields. 

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: "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.
