CFP: 2013 Economic History Association

The next annual meeting of the Economic History Association (EHA) will be held in Washington, D.C., on September 20-22, 2013, with a theme of "Global Perspectives." The call for papers states:
Economic history has gone global. The history of international trade,finance, migration, and long run development attracts ever more attention. The global perspective is also transforming the study of individual countries. International comparisons provide a yard stick for gauging what is unique and important in a nation’s history. What role have internal factors like culture and institutions played in explaining differential development and how does their importance compare to the imperatives and opportunities presented by the international economy? What role has economic policy played in shaping the international economic order and in helping countries meet the challenges it presents? Can a country’s economic history any longer be written from a purely national point of view or is a global perspective essential?
The Program Committee (Stephen Broadberry, London School of Economics (chair), together with Chris Meissner, Peter Coclanis, and Carol Shiue) welcomes submissions on all subjects in economic history, though some preference will be given to papers that specifically fit the theme. Papers should be submitted individually, but authors may suggest to the Committee that three particular papers fit well together in a panel.
    Papers and session proposals should be submitted online: The submission system is now open. Paper proposals should include a 3-5 page précis and a 150-word abstract suitable for publication in the Journal of Economic History. Papers should be submitted by January 31, 2013, to ensure consideration. For more information, please see the EHA meeting website.
