Economic history has already examined the opening of new markets in the perspective of more general research on the notion of markets and their concrete functioning. The exploration of the appearance of new products, technical innovations, and the evolution of consumption, transportation, and distribution modes contributed to our understanding of how new markets are created, conquered and maintained over time.
The next AFHE Congress aims to focus attention on this very moment of emergence, its causes, manifestations and consequences, from antiquity to the present day.
Deadline: 28 February 2022
The Young Scholar Initiative (YSI) Economic History Working Group and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid are organizing a two-day workshop on April, 21st-22nd. The theme will be "Magnifying Spaces of Capitalism: Sources and data of a Transforming World".
This two-day workshop seeks to provide an experimental space for the sound confrontation of various empirical studies painting better images of institutional and structural changes at heart in the development of early forms of capitalism. Following a successful first workshop that essentially discussed issues related to considering multiple scales of analysis in the historical study of economic phenomena, this second edition will primarily facilitate a discussion on the various and multifaceted sources best suited to facilitate research in the history of capitalism.
The Institute of Social Sciences (ICS) and the Lisbon School of Economics and Management (ISEG) of the University of Lisbon invite submissions to the conference committee on the theme of “Giving Credit to Dictatorship: Authoritarian Regimes and Financial Capitalism in the Twentieth Century”.

The Fondazione Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica “F. Datini” and the European School for Training in Economic and Social Historical Research (ESTER) announce their sixth jointly-organized Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar for economic and social historians on 8-13 May 2022, in Prato (Italy) on: “Economic Innovations”. The topic of the seminar is closely related to the theme of the congress organized yearly by the "F. Datini" International Institute of Economic History and devoted in 2022 to The Knowledge Economy. Innovation, Productivity and Economic Growth. The 2022 Datini-Ester seminar will deal with Economic Innovations. We particularly welcome papers on technical and institutional innovations and their impact on the economic output. The seminar will not deal directly with the production factors, but with the effects on the productivity and efficiency of the economic system deriving from changes in the mix of the inputs. Our purpose is to clarify the role of technical and institutional changes in different economies and discuss the possibility of measuring their effects on gross product.
