The International Economic History Association will hold its next World Economic History Congress (WEHC) in Kyoto, Japan, on August 3-7, 2015, meeting for the first time in Asia. The theme of the meeting will be "Diversity in Development." The Kyoto WEHC website is now open and accepting responses to the first call for session proposals. Proposals must be submitted using the online submission form; the deadline for this round is September 1, 2013. According to the call for sessions,
The WEHC Kyoto will explore the historical depth of diversity in economic development on a global scale. The IEHA welcomes sessions on all topics in economic history, business history, environmental history, demographic history, social history, urban history, cultural history, gender history, methodological approaches to historical research, history of economics and economic thought, and related fields. While submission of proposals relating to Asia and the developing world is encouraged, the Kyoto Congress will aim to be a global forum for dialogue and intellectual exchange and welcome submissions on topics covering all parts of the world. Session themes with a comparative and global perspective are particularly welcome.
