Conférence internationale: "Large-scale Crises: 1929 vs 2008"
17-19 décembre 2015, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancône, Italie

Le Département de sciences économiques et sociales de l’Università Politecnica delle Marche (Ancône, Italie) est en train d’organiser trois journées d’études consacrées à la comparaison entre la Grande Crise de 1929 et la Grande Récession de 2007. Ce rencontre propose de s’intéresser à leurs causes et conséquences, et aux leçons qu’on peut tirer de cette comparaison pour surmonter les crises à grande échelle. Le but de cette conférence est d’analyser en profondeur autant la crise de 1929 que la crise actuelle, à travers différentes perspectives analytiques et empiriques, bien que les contributions puissent être étendues à la Grande Dépression de la fin du XIXeme siècle, ou à d’autres remarquables récessions de l’ère industrielle. Vous trouvez ci-dessous l’appel à contributions. La langue officielle de la conférence est l’anglais.

International Conference: "Large-scale Crises: 1929 vs 2008"
17-19 December, 2015. Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy

The Department of Economic and Social Sciences (DiSES) of the Università Politecnica delle Marche is organizing a 3 day conference with a focus on the comparison of the causes and the consequences of the Great Crisis of 1929 and the 2008 Great Recession, and on what we can learn from them in order to overcome crises.
