CFP: EHESS 40th Anniversary Workshop

Organizers have issued a call for papers for a one-day workshop in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS). The meeting, which will take place on June 25, 2015, will focus on the theme "Causality in Economics and History." According to the call for papers:
The workshop will discuss works on the processes of causality, which mobilize both the counterfactual approach and other forms of causal inference. Presentation of empirical cases as well as theoretical reflections made in recent publications are welcome. The workshop will focus on discussing contrasting treatments of causality in two disciplines — History and Economics — which employ this notion in different ways.
James A. Robinson, David Florence Professor of Government at Harvard University, will open the discussion with a keynote lecture. Papers may be presented in either English or French. Six or seven slots for presentation are available for historians and economists. Special attention will be given to presentations focusing on the forms of causality and the models of reasoning employed in economics and in history. Each presentation will be discussed by a scholar.
    Please send a 1-2 page proposal for a paper in either French or English to the organizers, Jean Boutier (jean.boutier@ehess.fr) and Alain Trannoy (alain.trannoy@gmail.com) before April 20, 2015.
    The full call for papers can be found here.
