CFP: Banking History Association Annual Meeting 2018

The European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) has announced that its 2018 Annual Meeting will take place - in cooperation with the Fondazione 1563 per l'Arte e la Cultura della Compagnia di San Paolo - in Torino, Italy, on June 14-15, 2018. With the theme "The Social Aims of Finance," the conference will explore how financial institutions have tackled the question of their legitimacy and social usefulness by developing alternative goals and business forms for durable financial services.
    The meeting will be accompanied by an archival workshop on 'good' archives. This workshop is designed for financial institutions' archivists, researchers and potential users and will reflect on the legacy of the social purposes that inspired the origins of many financial institutions and the role banks and finance played in society.
     Please consult the full call for papers for additional details and a fuller explanation of the meeting theme. Proposals for both events are due by January 31, 2018.
     Academic paper givers will have the opportunity for their papers to be considered for peer-reviewed publication in the Financial History Review.
