CFP Reminder: WEHC 2015 First Call Deadline Approaching

The World Economic History Congress (WEHC) 2015 Organizing Committee reminds readers that the first call for session submissions will close on September 1, 2013. Full guidelines are available on the Congress website.
     The call for papers states,
The main theme of the WEHC 2015 is “Diversity in Development.” . . . 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. Organisers will be given wide discretion to shape the format of sessions to be the most interesting and efficient, given the topic and the participants invited.
Proposals should be submitted on-line via the Congress website.
