CFP: Economic History Association, 2012

The Economic History Association (EHA) will hold its next annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, on September 21-23, 2012. The theme for the meeting is "Revisiting the Transportation Revolution." The program committee (Robert Margo, Boston University [chair]; Ran Abramitzky, Stanford University; Leah Boustan, UCLA; and Eugene White, Rutgers University) welcomes submissions on all subjects in economic history, though some preference will be given to papers that specifically fit the year's theme. All papers should be submitted individually; authors may suggest that three particular papers would fit well together in a session but such suggestions are not binding on the committee.
    Papers and session proposals should be submitted online at Paper proposals should include a 3-5 page précis and a 150-word abstract suitable for publication in the Journal of Economic History. The submission deadline is January 27, 2012.
    A poster session welcomes work from dissertations in progress. Applications for the poster session should be submitted online and are due no later than May 18, 2012. The dissertation session convened by Naomi Lamoreaux (Yale University) and Joachim Voth (Pompeu Fabra University) will honor six dissertations completed during the 2011-2012 academic year. The submission deadline is May 15, 2012. Information on how to submit will be posted at
    More details are available on the EHA 2012 meeting page, and additional information will be posted there as it becomes available. Questions may be directed to EHA Meetings Coordinator Jari Eloranta.
