CFP: Sound Economic History Workshop

The 11th Sound Economic History Workshop will be hosted by the Department of Political and Economic Studies, University of Helsinki in Helsinki, Finland, on November 3-4, 2016. The keynote speakers will be Jaime Reis (ICS) and Susanna Fellman (Gothenburg). According to the call for papers:
The main aim of the Sound Workshop is to gather young researchers in a friendly and non-imposing environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers and leading economic historians. Another aim of the workshop is to demonstrate the breadth of (especially Nordic) Economic History as an academic discipline, so there is no theme to the workshop, and submissions are encouraged from any sub-­field of economic and social history. Nordic scholars and scholars based in a Nordic country will be given preference, but others warmly welcome to apply. The workshop organizers particularly encourage presentations by PhD students and post-docs.
Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV to local organizers Laura Ekholm ( and Sakari Saaritsa (, no later than September 5, 2016.
