CFP: Capitalism, Crises and European Integration from 1945 to the Present (Florence, 26-28 May 2016)

Call for Papers
Capitalism, Crises and European Integration from 1945 to the present

First HEIRS-RICHIE Conference, European University Institute, Florence, 26-28 May 2016

The severe multidimensional crisis that has been affecting Europe since 2008 calls for a critical rethinking of European integration history. The crisis has raised questions about the nature of today’s European ‘project’, which appears in many ways different from what it was at its inception in the past century. Arguably, European integration took root in a moment of exception in the history of capitalism, when inequalities were at a historical low – in sharp contrast with the present era of globalised ‘neoliberal’ capital- ism and record inequalities. Europe’s present travails also highlight the importance of crises in shaping European integration. This feature is inherent to European integration history; the post-war mushrooming of integration and cooperation projects was a response to the deep social and economic crises of the continent.

This conference seeks to historicise post-war European integration in its connection to the history of capitalism and its crises in their multiple dimensions: economic, social, political, intellectual, environmental, among others. The aim will be to highlight different moments of change, rupture or continuity in the ideas and realisations that underlie European integration. We invite contributions on themes that include, but are not limited to:

  • Crises and European integration: exploring how crises have constituted moments of economic change, intellectual redefinition, and political and social re- configuration in European integration, as well as analysing how competing narratives of crises have been linked to competing visions of European integration.
  • Ideology, Capitalism and European Integration: the EC/EU and other international organisations have been loci of constant competition between different political and ideological currents. How did ideas and ideologies championed by national and trans- national actors penetrate different European ‘projects’ and policies? How can processes of transfers, learning and competition between and within European organisations be traced? How did European integration impact ideological changes in Europe and beyond?
  • Political Economy of European Integration: investigating how European organisations perceived, adapted, encouraged and responded to shifts in modes of production and organisation in different economic sectors; seeking to read the political economies fostered between the lines of the European treaties, institutions and policies: monetary, industrial, agricultural, social, trade, development, migration, employment, gender equalities, etc.
  • European Integration, regionalism and globalisation: arguably the main development of capitalism in the past fifty years, globalisation has been intertwined with European integration. How did European institutions and policies seek to shape, moderate, or shield European populations from increasing ‘globalisation’? Or how, on the contrary, did it constitute a multiplier effect on globalising forces? Can we identify diverging roles between different regional and international organisations in this respect?

PhD students and early postdoctoral researchers in history and connected disciplines are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 300 words and a short CV by 18 December 2015 to Aurélie Andry at aurelie.andry @ Travel and accommodation costs will be covered.

Selection committee: Aurélie Andry, Haakon Ikonomou, Quentin Jouan, Guia Migani, Emmanuel Mourlon-Druol, Federico Romero, Laurent Warlouzet.

The History of European Integration Research Society (HEIRS) and the Réseau International des Chercheurs en Histoire de l’Intégration Européenne (RICHIE) are postgraduate student networks that strive to foster collaboration and interaction among postgraduate researchers across Europe with an interest in European integration history. This conference will bring together PhD students and academics from various disciplines to discuss their work in a number of panels. It will be coupled with a workshop on the theme ‘Capitalism, Crises and European Integration in the long 1970s’. In addition, there will be keynote lectures and speakers will be available for in-depth discussions. Some papers will be selected for publication in high-ranked history journal. The conference is part of the Jean Monnet Project ‘Rethinking European Integration History in Times of Crisis’ supported by the European Commission and the Alcide De Gasperi Research Center on the History of European Integration at the European University Institute.

Call for Papers: Economics and Human Biology (Tuebingen, October 15-16, 2016)

Economics and Human Biology
Tuebingen, October 15-16, 2016

Call for papers
This two-day workshop focuses on Economics and Human Biology. The conference is devoted to the exploration of the interrelationships between socio-economic processes and human beings as biological organisms.

Themes include:
• The impact of socio-economic processes, such as industrialization, urbanization, agricultural policy, technological change and commercialization and the degree of penetration of the world food system on biological welfare and health outcomes.
• The effects of government intervention programs, as well as macroeconomic and public health policy on the human organism at either the individual or the population level.
• Feedback effects from human biological outcomes to economic growth at the national, regional and local levels insofar as healthier individuals invariably lead longer, more creative, and more productive lives, thereby influencing the course of economic development.
• The complex symbiotic relationship between such anthropometric indicators as weight, birth-weight, physical stature and the body-mass-index, as well as morbidity and mortality, on the one hand and socio-economic processes or events on the other.
• Overweight and obesity: Causes and consequences.
• The measurement of poverty, malnutrition and psychological deprivation and the role of health and income inequality in the persistence of poverty traps.
• Health and the impact of resources since antiquity.
• The biological components of the quality of life: how well the human organism itself thrives in its socio-economic and epidemiological environment.

Contributions in auxology, anthropometry, biocultural anthropology, demography, development economics, economic history, epidemiology, health economics, human biology, human nutrition, health sciences, medicine, physical anthropology, public health and sociology are welcomed, as long as the contributions advance the study of the relationship between economics and human biology.
We will have two deadlines, November 15th, 2015 and May 1st, 2016 (one third of the slots will go to early submissions). Papers or abstracts (200 words, noting main data sources and hypotheses) should be send to Joerg.baten @ . All submissions will be acknowledged. An international committee will decide. Notices of acceptance will be sent to corresponding authors by November 30, 2015 and May 15, 2016, respectively.
Separate applications for travel funding and accommodation are welcome until March 1st 2016. The involvement of young scholars is strongly encouraged.

International Colloquium: Historic harbour cranes – Restoration and re-use of a living monumental heritage (Antwerp, November 13, 2015)

Colloquium: Historic harbour cranes – Restoration and re-use of a living monumental heritage

International colloquium
November 13th 2015
MAS, Antwerp, Belgium

Historic harbour cranes – Restoration and re-use of a living monumental heritage
For centuries, harbour cranes played a key role in the growing efficiency of seaports, certainly since the breakthrough of steam technology. Their dimensions and their number made harbour cranes iconic for harbours and harbour cities. The historic cranes that have been conserved up the present day have become a very specific and monumental ‘engineering heritage’. In addition to their function as a landmark or a museum piece, they have also a contemporary destination.

This international congress aims to address professionals and volunteers in the world of Industrial Heritage, researchers, urban planners and historic preservation workers.

During this congress international experts will delve deeply into the value of historic harbour cranes and the position of this ‘monumental heritage’ in contemporary harbours.

Based on cases from different countries, the pros and cons of operating historic cranes are explained. What does it mean to keep operating cranes, with steam power, hydraulic power or with historic electric installations?

Finally, crane drivers – traditionally – play an essential role. Where do we find the operators for historic cranes? How do we secure their knowledge and experience? How do we train them for the future?

Published by EH.Net (October 2015)

Michael Kwass, Contraband: Louis Mandrin and the Making of a Global Underground. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2014. ix + 457 pp. $50 (hardcover), ISBN: 978-0-674-72683-3.

Reviewed for EH.Net by Jeff Horn, Department of History, Manhattan College.

Michael Kwass of Johns Hopkins University has written an ambitious book that melds global, national and local perspectives to provide insight into eighteenth-century political and economic culture. It focuses on the life, career, trial, execution and legacy of the infamous Dauphinois smuggler Louis Mandrin, who was executed in 1755. Consequently, Kwass adds human interest and drama to this wide-ranging study centered on the middle decades of the eighteenth century, though parts of the narrative begin in the seventeenth century and another section sketches the tale into the early nineteenth century. His central argument is that “the convergence of three formidable historical forces — globalization, consumption, and state formation — destabilized the old regime and contributed to the outbreak of revolution” (p. 6). As a corollary to that thesis, Kwass stresses that the extent and troublesome nature of the “global underground” was an “unintended consequence” of the state’s efforts to increase revenue and regulate the economy (p. 16).

Through the careful study of calicoes and tobacco, Kwass establishes a model of “The Globalization of European Consumption.” He continues by exploring the policies and practices of the Bourbon government’s approach to commercial regulation — setting up a monopoly for the latter and outlawing the former combined to galvanize the black market. A chapter on the “shadow economy” describes the routes, actions, and backgrounds of the smugglers. These subjects are interspersed with and provide context and meaning for six chapters exploring Mandrin’s life and activities. He smuggled these goods in three daring and violent raids into France, using Savoy as a base. The General Tax Farm that oversaw the tobacco monopoly and enforced the ban on calicoes as subcontractor to the crown was the chief object of Mandrin’s ire and the political economy he expressed both in word and deed. Kwass then details how Mandrin’s story became publicized and politicized through the medium of print from newspaper accounts to a putative first-person “political testament” written by a budding political economist from Grub Street (p. 288). A thoughtful chapter on “Smuggling in the Enlightenment” considers the political economy of smuggling and is followed by a chapter on the Revolution. The conclusion competently summarizes the main arguments. Kwass also explores the Farm’s police powers and ability to implement summary justice especially the Commission of Valence, the Enlightened push for reform of the criminal justice system, the overweening place of hatred of the system of indirect taxes and the role of the Farm in collecting them in the cahiers de doléances written in the spring of 1789, as well as the significance of anti-tax sentiment in Revolutionary violence. The “consumer revolution” of 1650-1800 (his next project) lurks behind many points in Kwass’ account.

Kwass has done extensive research in both the archives and in the relevant secondary literatures. There are, however, a number of notable lacunae, mostly, but not exclusively relating to the economic effects of the subjects under discussion. That said, his research is generally impressive. He has also included twenty-four well-chosen images as well as sufficient maps to illustrate his points.

Contraband has already won several major prizes (see for details). Kwass excels at institutional and political history as well as the history of ideas. In terms of economics, however, a more critical stance may be warranted. While he is proficient at examining the economic culture of contraband, he pays scant attention to its domestic economic effects. For example, Kwass ably demonstrates the global nature of tobacco production and provides a few statistics about tobacco consumption and the number of retail outlets for tobacco (pp. 21-31), but he makes no effort to calculate or even estimate the effects of smuggling on that market. Nor does he discuss the effects on focusing on these two atypical goods rather than emphasizing salt, the most commonly smuggled good. Although Kwass claims to have examined the importance of production in his depiction of the underground economy (p. 359), this reviewer could find little evidence to support that assertion. Kwass focuses on commerce, the state’s regulation of it, and efforts of smugglers and consumers to avoid paying taxes on goods. Even with a product like calicoes that was made in France both before and after the ban, Kwass says little about the impact of smuggling on sales, the workforce, or even on France’s international competitiveness. In fact, Kwass ignores those modern scholars who do not fit his contention that historians have not looked at “the violence, coercion, and turmoil that accompanied trade in the metropole” (pp. 2-3). Among those historians who have examined these issues are Alessandro Stanziani in Rules of Exchange: French Capitalism in Comparative Perspective, Eighteenth to Early Twentieth Centuries (2012), Natacha Coquery, Tenir boutique à Paris au XVIIIe siècle (2011), Philippe Minard, La fortune du colbertisme : État et industrie dans la France des Lumières (1998), and my own The Path Not Taken: French Industrialization in the Age of Revolution (2006) which considers the impact of smuggling in the context of the Anglo-French Commercial Treaty of 1786 and during the Continental Blockade.

The effects of the command economy associated with the Maximum in the Year II (1793-94) represent another important and somewhat perplexing gap in Kwass’ consideration of contraband and the underground economy. As I demonstrated in The Path Not Taken, the Maximum represented a vitally important state effort to regulate the economy that engendered massive smuggling efforts, not only at the borders, but between departments (which had different price levels set by the state) and often at the district and municipal levels. Calicoes and especially tobacco were among the goods that were traded clandestinely. Many of the themes of Kwass’ examination of the underground economy and state formation culminated in 1793-94, an historical moment that he skips over in this chapter on the Revolution (see p. 350). Of course, authors cannot be expected to do everything, but by extending his story after the fall of the old regime in such a cursory fashion, Kwass has missed an opportunity to consider the impact of the Revolution on the underground economy. At least some comparative consideration of how France stacked up against other countries in terms of the role of contraband and repression of smuggling would also have been welcome in this study of the global underground. Examining the cultural impact of Mandrin’s legacy in the manner pioneered by Cynthia A. Bouton in Interpreting Social Violence in French Culture: Buzançais, 1847-2008 (2011) would also have contributed meaningfully to the importance of Kwass’ project.

A plea for more attention to the economic effects of state policies and the efforts of consumers and smugglers to circumvent those policies and the institutions charged with implementing them should not be mistaken as undervaluing or dismissing Kwass’ achievement. Far from it. Still, a major component of “economic culture” ought to be economic impact. Despite these (and similar) gaps, those interested in the subject or the period will learn a great deal from Kwass’ stimulating book.

Cualquier profesional deberá conocer en su actividad diaria, cuanto menos, los materiales con los que trabaja, su denominación y características. En esa línea, el profesional de la documentación está obligado a reconstruir los expedientes, asignando la “etiqueta” correspondiente a cada una de las piezas documentales que los integran. La Diplomática permite el análisis de los textos conforme a su génesis, tradición y estructura; lo que posibilitará la identificación de los tipos documentales que se han producido en las diferentes esferas de la administración, ya sea real, eclesiástica, notarial, municipal, judicial.. Asimismo, una de las funciones principales de todo archivero, si no la primordial, radica en poner a disposición del público los documentos que custodia. Esta tarea no se comprende si antes no han sido realizadas una serie de acciones que, finalmente, cristalizarán en la descripción. Con todo, ésta comprenderá diversas fases, dependiendo del grado de profusión con el que sean abordados los textos. Así, podemos hablar de guías, inventarios, catálogos…, en un recorrido informativo que partirá de lo general para desembocar en lo particular. Esta operación, a simple vista, tan fácil, requiere de una normalización, máxime en los tiempos que corren, donde el trasvase y migración de datos se antoja fundamental en la era de la informática. Dicha homogeneización descriptiva es, en la actualidad, un hecho, en virtud a la creación e implantación de la norma internacional “ISAD-G”, acompañada, por ejemplo, de otras como la ISAAR (CPF), ISDF o ISDIAH. Por último, todo lo anterior difícilmente tendrá sentido si no somos capaces de leer los documentos, de transcribir los caracteres con los que han sido confeccionados a lo largo de la Historia. Por todo ello, se hace necesario recurrir a la Paleografía, a fin de poder descifrar los códigos gráficos de antaño. Sirva de ejemplo que en la Edad Moderna se emplearon tres tipos escriturarios: cortesano, procesal y humanístico.

Summer Courses in Greece

I would like to bring to the attention of economic historians a unique program of summer courses in Greece.

The uniqueness of the program lies in that it combines superb faculty, very interesting courses, accommodation in a 5-star hotel and two meals a day, as well as excursions. The cost of the entire package stands at two-thirds of the cost of taking an equivalent course at a top US university.

The courses offered in the summer of 2016 are in the areas of social psychology, economics, and cosmology. Please check their website for course description and daily schedule

I would very much appreciate the help of colleagues in making this program known to their students.
