CFP: “Commerce, Corporations and the Law”

The History Project has issued a call for papers for Commerce, Corporations and the Law, a conference to be held September 27-28, 2013, at Princeton University. The organizers welcome proposals for papers from advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and recent Ph.D. recipients "in different disciplines, including economics, economic history, the history of economic thought, legal history, political theory, and the history of science. The conference will be concerned with cross-cultural trade, firms, and legal systems around the world."
    The deadline for submissions of proposals is March 1, 2013. Information on grants in aid of travel and accommodation costs, as well as “a small number of research grants," is here. Please note that proposals are to be submitted on-line, using the form provided at the call for papers site.
