XIX World Economic History Congress - Paris
2nd call for sessions closes on June 30, 2020

The 19th World Congress in Paris will be held in Paris on July 25-30 2021. The Congress will address “resources” as one of the main challenges of the contemporary world. The Congress will consider sessions on all the categories of resources, that is natural, material, immaterial and human (work and skill): water, air, energy, food products, raw materials, labour, capital, patents etc. The panel will address the discovery, management and limitation of these resources, the impact their use has on territorial and social organizations as well as their significances in individuals’ eyes up for the world community at large.

To submit a session proposal you need to login below and will then be able to submit your proposal in a file. You'll have to give the name(s) of the organizer(s) and their institutional affiliation, a title for the session, and the preferred duration (single session of 90' or double session 2X90', successive or not). In addition, it is advised to provide a summary with a list of potential contributors and the title of their talk, if relevant. Only submissions in English will be accepted.

You can access and modify your proposal until June 30, 2020.

The Congress will host approximately 200 sessions, divided daily into four 90-minute sessions. The selection of proposals will be operated by the IEHA Scientific Committee / Executive Committee. Researchers and university scholars from all countries, working in economic history and related disciplines, regardless of their status or affiliation institutional, are eligible to apply.

Approximately 100 sessions have already been selected after the first call (see the full list).

In addition, the organizers of the 19th World Congress aim at having participants from all over the world and to do so, 120 scholarships will be awarded to those who find it difficult to finance their participation to the Congress.

The organizing committee welcomes a large set of approaches in economic history including social history, urban and rural history, history or economics of finance, sciences, and technologies, gender history, cultural history, etc. – and crossovers with other disciplinary fields, including demography, environment, anthropology, sociology, socio-psychology, etc. It also invites panels about methods in economic history, history of economic thought or economic theory, as well as innovative discussion of new sets of data and archives, or public communication of new (or renewed) results in economic history.
