CFP: APEBH 2017 Conference

Hosted by the Economic History Society of Australia and New Zealand (EHSANZ), the annual Asia-Pacific Economic and Business History (APEBH) Conference will be held on February 9-11, 2017, at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT). The theme will be "Current Trends in Economic and Business History Research." According to the call for papers,
Researchers across a broad range of disciplines are warmly welcomed. Early career researchers are encouraged to participate. The conference organisers are also particularly interested in attracting papers that examine topics in the context of the Asia-Pacific region and papers that provide an international comparative perspective, in particular for settler-economies like Australia and New Zealand. The conference looks for new research from a number of perspectives, including those of the cliometrician, the business historian, the applied economist, as well as the social historian. There is ample scope for new interpretations, new findings, as well as syntheses of existing work.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is December 15, 2016. For additional information, please consult the full call for papers and the APEBH website.
