CFP: 2015 Appalachian Spring Conference on World History and Economics

The Tenth Annual Appalachian Spring Conference in World History and Economics, an interdisciplinary meeting aimed at bringing together scholars from Appalachian State University (Boone, NC) and scholars from other universities in North Carolina, the surrounding states, and abroad, will hold its next meeting on April 10-11, 2015, on the Appalachian State University campus. The theme will be "The History and Nature of Capitalism"; though paper or panel proposals do not have to be directly tied to the conference theme, papers fitting with the theme will be given special consideration.
    The 2015 keynote speaker will be Deirdre McCloskey, Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is a world-renowned scholar of economic history and the history of capitalism.
  Those interested in participating should let the organizers know by February 10, 2015. A one-page abstract describing the scholar’s proposal should be submitted to the organizers by that date. A full paper will be expected by the organizers by March 10, 2015.
    There is a modest registration fee (regular: $75; [graduate] students: $30; ASU faculty and students: free). The organizers are unable to provide funding for accommodations or travel expenses.  
     Please consult the conference website for additional information; the organizers (contacts for paper proposals and practical matters) are:
Jari Eloranta, professor (Appalachian State University, Department of History): phone: 1-828-262-6006, email: jari.a.eloranta@gmail.com
