CFP: Sound Economic History Workshop, 2018

The 13th Sound Economic History Workshop will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, on September 6-7, 2018, hosted by the Unit for Economic History, University of Gothenburg. The keynote speaker will be Deborah Oxley of the University of Oxford. The local organizer is Svante Prado; organizers for Sound are Jacob Weisdorf, Kerstin Enflo, and Svante Prado. According to the organizers:
The main aim of the Sound Workshop is to gather young researchers in a friendly and non-imposing environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers and leading economic historians. Another aim of the workshop is to demonstrate the breadth of (especially Nordic) Economic History as an academic discipline, so there is no theme to the workshop, and submissions are encouraged from any sub-field of economic and social history. Nordic scholars and scholars based in a Nordic country will be given preference, but others are warmly welcome to apply. 
The workshop organizers particularly encourage presentations by PhD students and post-docs. Ph.D. students and post-docs are also encouraged to participate even if they do not wish to present paper. The Sound Workshop organisers strive to accommodate as many speakers as possible. Depending on the number of participants, accepted papers will receive up to 25 minutes each (15 minutes for presentation and 5-10 minutes for discussion). The workshop is a two-day event, and accepted speakers are strongly encouraged to participate on both days. There is no registration fee for this workshop.
    Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV to Svante Prado ( no later than March 1, 2018. For more information, please visit the Sound Economic History Workshop website.
