The Italian Association for the History of Economic Thought (AISPE) and the Italian Society of Economic Historians (SISE) invite economic historians and the academic communities of historians, economists, and other scholars in the humanities and the political and social sciences to submit proposals for a conference on the history of mobility and circulation of resources, people and ideas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Rivista di Storia Economica / Italian Review of Economic History (RSE/IREH) has embarked on a new course with the first issue of 2022. The Editorial Board aims to promote fresh research on economic history covering a wide range of countries, periods, and methods. To this aim, the RSE/IREH invites submissions for a fast-track workshop and review process.
The diffusion of education has been unevenly distributed in space and time, across as well as within countries. Economic historians have increasingly taken advantage of such variation across places to examine (i) the relationship between education and economic development and (ii) the determinants of schooling and human capital. Similar issues have been investigated by historians and historians of education, who have explored regional variations in schooling through analyses of national politics bringing about standardization and homogenization, and in studies of the local and regional contexts of education, shedding further lights on the complex settings that enabled the rise of mass schooling.
This workshop aims at promoting interdisciplinary perspectives on the individual, regional and cross-country differences in schooling and their change in the past and in the long run. This workshop will provide a platform where quantitative and qualitative contributions inform each other.
The scope of the topics we are interested in discussing at the conference is deliberately broad and seeks to address all aspects of interest to our institutions: the development and conservation of archives and collections, library management, initiatives in the digital humanities, issues related to research and links with researchers, projects related to the publication of books and journals. In addition to convening institutions (affiliated to IALHI or not) and specialists from the Global South, we also invite European and North American members of IALHI to contribute their reflections on these issues, based on their own experiences working with archival materials and colleagues from other regions.
The aim of this conference is to bring together recent, evidence-based historical research on the role business and labor actors played in climate and environmental policies during the period that runs from the United Nation’s Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, in 1972, until the Conference of the Parties to be held in the United Arab Emirates in November this year. We invite submissions that focus attention on the political actions or social practices of individual corporations, CEOs, business organizations or federations, consultants, scientific experts, labor unions, workers’ coalitions, whistleblowers, etc. How did these corporate and labor actors react to the growing public attention given to human-made environmental degradation since the 1960s? How did they position themselves towards scientific evidence on climate change? What kind of transnational networks were established between actors in Europe or North America and groups in the Global South? In what circumstances did organized labor oppose the regulation of various types of pollution to the preservation of economic growth and jobs? What impact did neoliberal paradigms have on the integration of business actors into global climate governance? What strategies were put into place to influence regulations of air and water pollution on a national level? Were there conflicts between different business and labor actors on these strategies? How did lobbying influence the work of international organizations or domestic political processes? It is therefore not the history of technological innovation or management practices that is at the center of this conference, but that of power relations involving business and labor.
