CFP: Workshop for New Scholars in Financial History

The European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) and Queen’s University Centre for Economic History (QUCEH) invite the submission of research papers from advanced Ph.D. students and recent postdoctoral researchers in financial history for a "New Scholars Workshop," to be held in Belfast on April 16, 2014.

This one-day intensive workshop is specifically intended for new scholars in financial history, broadly defined, who wish to practice and improve their research through presentation and discussion with more experienced scholars. Participants who have a full research paper and are intending in the near future to go on the academic job market, or to submit their work to a top field journal in business, economic, or financial history, are particularly encouraged to apply. Research in any theme and methodology in banking and financial history is welcome. Comparative approaches are encouraged and co-authored papers will be accepted.

The workshop’s keynote speaker and discussant will be Professor Joost Jonker, NEHA professor of business history at the University of Amsterdam. Participants will also benefit from the close discussion of their work by faculty at QUCEH, a research center based at Queen’s University Management School. The EABH will cover best price economy flights and a two-night stay in Belfast. Outstanding scholars will be asked to present their paper at the EABH annual conference in Zurich on June 13, 2014.

Prospective participants should send their full paper to by January 17, 2014, along with a full CV that clearly states the (expected) date of Ph.D. completion. For additional information, please see the full call for papers.
