CFP: Portuguese Association of Economic and Social History 2018

The Portuguese Association of Economic and Social History (APHES) has issued a call for papers for its next annual meeting, to be held at the University of Lisbon on November 16-17, 2018. The theme for the meeting will be gender in economic and social history. According to the call for papers:
Gender as an analytical tool has been increasingly used by historians in the last few decades in a wide range of domains. The aspects of social and economic history where the gender dimension is relevant are numerous: assessment of social functions, different patterns of insertion in the labour market, of wage levels, of access to property or wealth, of acquisition of human capital, or of participation in the life of firms are just a few examples. We invite scholars who wish to contribute to the debate on gender issues in economic and social history to present proposals for panels or individual papers. The submission of panel proposals and individual papers on any other topic in economic and social history is also welcome.
Paper proposals should include 4 keywords, an abstract (max. 500 words) indicating the topic, the aims, the theoretical approach and the empirical foundations; and a CV of no more than 400 words. Panel proposals should include the same information for each participant and paper; and should include three participants and a chair. Proposals and full texts should be sent to aphes38@gmail.com. The submission deadline is May 16, 2018.
    For more information, please see the call for papers on the APHES conference website.
