CFP Reminder: 2017 Portuguese Economic and Social History Association Conference

Max Römer, "Bay of Funchal"
The 37th conference of the Portuguese Economic and Social History Association will be held at the University of Madeira, Colégio dos Jesuítas, Funchal, on November 17-18, 2017. The theme of the meeting will be "The Atlantic in Economic and Social History." As the call for papers states,
The history of the Atlantic broke with the frontiers of historiography based on the nation-state’s approach, allowing thereafter the possibility of comparing processes in the long run. . . . The processes originating in the Atlantic have tended to be analysed as interactions between people, institutions and economies in a interconnected world. 
Proposals for either panels or individual presentations will be considered. The APHES Conference is open to the submission of papers on any topic in economic and social history.
    Paper proposals should include an abstract between 400 and 500 words, with the description of the topic, objectives, theoretical framework, empirical support of the paper, and 4 key words. A brief CV of the author ﴾1 page max.﴿ should also be sent. Proposals for panels should include three papers and one chair/discussant. The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2017. Proposals should be sent to: aphes37@mail.uma.pt.
