CFP: 2018 European Social Science History Conference

Belfast City HallThe 2018 European Social Science History Conference will be held at Queen's University in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on April 4-7. The ESSHC is one of the largest congresses for the historical sciences in the world; papers and sessions are therefore organized in many networks covering specific topics. The Economic History Network has announced its call for papers, inviting
proposals for papers as well as sessions of 4 related papers each. We welcome proposals focusing on any aspect of the historical analysis of economic change using both quantitative and qualitative methods, on any region of Europe or the wider world. We especially look for receiving proposals from young scholars and proposals using interdisciplinary approaches that push the boundaries of economic history.
Both paper and session proposals must be submitted through the ESSHC website by filling out the pre-registration form; please select "Economic History" from the list of networks. To propose a paper, submit a working title and an abstract of up to 500 words. To propose a session, submit a title and an abstract for the session and the list of participants. Proposal writers may suggest a chair and discussant(s) for the session, who may be the same person.
     All paper and session proposals must be submitted by May 1, 2017. Please see the full call for papers for additional details.
