WEHC 2018: Accepted Panels Update and Call for Dissertations

The next World Economic History Congress (WEHC) will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, on July 29-August 3, 2018. Panel proposals accepted during the second round are now online and are listed together with the first-round proposals. Panels from either round that still have open calls for papers are indicated in the listing.
   Students who have completed their dissertations between June 2014 and August 2017 are encouraged to submit their theses for the dissertation panel/competition. Dissertations will be shortlisted and considered for awards in three separate categories: Ancient/medieval/early modern period; the long 19th century; and the 20th century. The three finalists in each category will be invited to present their work in the dissertation panel. Theses written in languages other than English will also be considered, although the abstract needs to be in English. The deadline for electronic submissions of the theses, along with information on past and current affiliation of the student, advisor, 500-word abstract, and any other pertinent information is December 1, 2017. All materials should be sent by email to: iehaofficial@gmail.com.
