EHS annual conference 2016: calls for papers

Call for Academic Papers

The 2016 annual conference of the Economic History Society will be hosted by Robinson College, University of Cambridge, from 1 – 3 April.

The conference programme committee welcomes proposals on all aspects of economic and social history covering a wide range of periods and countries, and particularly welcomes papers of an interdisciplinary nature. Scholars are not expected to present a paper in more than one session (including as a co-author) and, when slots are limited, priority will be given to those who did not present in the academic sessions at the previous year’s conference. Those currently studying for, or who have recently completed, a PhD should submit a proposal to the New Researcher session; see below for further information.

Proposals should please be submitted online via the conference website. Deadline: 4 September 2015.

Call for New Researcher Papers

The annual conference opens with papers presented by new researchers. They offer those completing (or who have recently completed) doctorates the opportunity to present their own work before professional colleagues and to benefit from informed comment. Speakers who have participated in a new researcher session at a previous Economic History Society annual conference should please submit a proposal to present a paper in the Academic Session.

Proposals should please be submitted online via the conference website. Deadline: 4 September 2015.

Call for New Researcher Posters

The Society welcomes sole-authored posters from graduate students at an early stage of pursuing their PhD; collaborative work is not eligible. Graduate students who have presented a poster will be eligible to apply to present a paper in the New Researcher session in a subsequent year, but may present in a poster session only once during their graduate career.

Proposals should please be submitted online via the conference website. Deadline: 20 November 2015.

Any queries should please be directed to: Maureen Galbraith.
