CFP: Economics Network of SSHA

The Economics Network of the Social Science History Association calls for papers for the 2014 SSHA conference, which will be held in Toronto, Ontario, on November 6-9, 2014. The conference theme is "Inequalities:  Politics, Policy, and the Past." SSHA draws submissions of papers and panels through networks organized by topic or field. The Economics Network representatives are
         Mark Geiger <mwgeiger1@gmail.com>
         Matt Jaremski <mjaremski@colgate.edu>
         Peter Meyer <meyer.peter@bls.gov>
         Evan Roberts <eroberts@umn.edu>
Submissions of economics-related papers or (preferably) full panels are due by February 14, 2014. Organizers are also interested in hearing from volunteer chairs or discussants.

The Economics Network meeting at the November 2013 meetings generated numerous ideas for panel sessions, including:
·         Approx. 100 years since the Federal Reserve Act and World War I
·         150 years since National Banking Acts
·         Approx. 200 years since War of 1812
·         Border studies, noting our conference's proximity to the Canada-US border
·         Meet the authors panel. We welcome suggestions of potential books by authors and readers
·         Comparisons of banking systems (notably US and Canada)
·         Fifty years of the War on Poverty
Other submissions related to social science history that can be incorporated into interdisciplinary panels are welcome, especially if they relate to the conference theme of "Inequalities."

A submission must provide an abstract, title and contact information, and designate a network (or networks) where the paper is likely to fit. Please submit paper and session proposals at http://conference.ssha.org. For more information including the conference-wide call for papers and information about the other networks please see the SSHA website at http://www.ssha.org/annual-conference.
