Call for Papers: 2021 Online Meeting of the Economic History Society

The Economic History Society has decided to hold its 2021 conference in a virtual format. The conference will shift from its current dates (9-11 April) to 6 – 9 April 2021, and will be held in the afternoon (UK time). This will facilitate international participation, and prevent Zoom fatigue.

Since the conference will now be a virtual one, we want to reissue the Call for Academic Papers and Sessions. We especially welcome papers from people who are not normally able to attend the conference. Papers should please be submitted, by 16 November, via the link at:

The Call for New Researcher Papers is now closed, but there is also an open call for New Researcher Posters, due by 23 November. Rather than trying to replicate a traditional poster session in a virtual setting, students will be asked to record 3-minute videos about their research, speaking to slides. Then each student will have a designated window in the programme for delegates to drop by (via Zoom) and have a discussion about their research. Proposals should please be submitted via the link at:

If anyone who has already submitted a paper would like to withdraw their existing paper, for whatever reason, please contact Maureen Galbraith at:
