Título del simposio 89: TERRITORIOS, TERRITORIALIDADES Y DERECHOS DE PROPIEDAD. LOS PUEBLOS INDÍGENAS DE LA AMÉRICA HISPANA y LATINA, SIGLOS XVIII-XIX Coordinadores: Judith Farberman (Argentina, jfarberman @ gmail.com) y Antonio Escobar Ohmstede (México, ohmstede @ ciesas.edu.mx) Resumen: El siglo XIX abrió con las secesiones políticas de los diferentes virreinatos de la América Hispánica, lo que sin duda, llevó a cambios y continuidades entre el periodo colonial y el republicano. El surgimiento de diversas entidades políticas y “nacionalidades” llevó a la adecuación de sus espacios sociales, políticos, económicos y culturales con el fin de irse definiendo como naciones, tanto de manera interna como externa. Este proceso impactó de muy diversas maneras a las diversas poblaciones indígenas que cobijaban el territorio americano, las cuales estaban presentes desde un poco más allá de la actual frontera de México hasta el estrecho de Magallanes. Si bien, la Corona española había homogenizado ciertas formas de control sobre los indígenas, fueran nómadas, semi sedentarios o sedentarios, la extensión del continente imposibilitaba dicha homogeneidad. Una de las grandes problemáticas a las que enfrentaron los gobiernos regionales y nacionales después de las independencias, pero que se pueden marcar como una continuidad desde el periodo colonial tardío, fue la diversidad de formas de apropiación del territorio por parte de los indígenas, algunas emanadas del periodo colonial, otras como formas de hibridez y en otras como una larga continuidad de lo acontecido antes de la llegada de los españoles. Sin embargo, el territorio ha sido un elemento central en la concepción de los pueblos indígenas, en el cual han sustentado formas de expresión, tanto políticas como culturales y sociales. El territorio no solamente es el espacio vivido, sino que se combina con formas de reconocimiento jurisdiccional que llevan a la consideración de espacios más amplios, que son afirmados por los propios habitantes, lo cual va definiendo un control sobre espacio y que se puede observar como formas de territorialidad. Es así, que el objetivo de este simposio, es analizar las formas, tipos de derechos y espacios que se defendieron y reconocieron en diversos ámbitos del mundo rural (indígenas, campesinos) de la actual América Latina en el siglo XIX, tanto desde la perspectiva política, como económica y cultural. Territorios y territorialidades que fueron constantemente cuestionadas por las entidades políticas en aras de una integración y homogeneidad racial, política, territorial y educacional que llevaría a la “soñada idea de nación”. Aspectos que nos llevaran a dialogar sobre cómo se construyeron y reconstruyeron los territorios indígenas y campesinos, tanto desde la perspectiva de su memoria histórica como en su defensa de dichos territorios, así como de su adecuación a nuevas formas políticas emanadas del periodo gaditano, pensando en los lugares que se aplicó, y readecuado por las instancias nacionales. Un elemento central, además del objetivo anteriormente planteado, es que cada trabajo a presentar lleve a una necesaria comparación con otros “países”, con el fin de ir resaltando la necesaria comparación de procesos, momentos y respuestas por parte de los indígenas. Por otra parte, el simposio se propone abordar los diferentes “derechos de propiedad” que surgen durante las transiciones entre la colonia y la independencia. Los procesos de extinción, perduración bajo nuevas formas y continuidad tradicional de los antiguos pueblos de indios coloniales conllevaron disputas y reacomodamientos de los derechos de propiedad, en numerosos casos alternativos a los vigentes en sistemas liberales.

Dressing Global Bodies: Clothing Cultures, Politics and Economies in Globalizing Eras, c. 1600s-1900s

7-9 July 2016, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada

Co-Organized with the Pasold Research Fund, UK

dressingglobalbodies.com

The clothes on our backs are intimately connected with bodily experiences, cultural, social and gender portrayals, as well as the economies of fashioning and re-fashioning across place and time. Garments reflect the priorities of local and international economies, collective and personal inclinations, religious norms and conversions. These materialities are shaped by global flows of cloth and beads, furs, ready-made and second-hand apparel, in dynamic processes of fashion exchange. Dress is a charged cultural instrument, as evident in colonial and decolonization processes, social and political agendas, animated by cross-cultural and commercial flows, industrial and institutional innovations.
This international conference will showcase new historical research on the centrality of dress in global, colonial and post-colonial engagements, emphasizing entangled histories, comparative and cross-cultural analyses. This scholarship redefines national and collective communities, in the practice of fashion and the dynamics of re-fashioning and re-use, from the seventeenth through the twentieth century.

We are exicited to accept individual papers or themed panels, maximum three speakers, on historical topics about clothing and the body, not limited to any culture(s) or geographic location(s).

Themes could include, but are not limited to:

  • Cross-cultural practices and patterns of dress and / or body adornment
  • Production and distribution of clothing (across cultures, entangled, comparative)
  • Gendered and ethnic shaping of dress and dress practice
  • Fashion politics of dress in globalizing contexts
  • Circulation and re-use of dress and dress idioms
  • Design in globalized contexts
  • Representations of clothing cultures
  • Appropriation / acculturation of designs, materials, motifs
  • Dress in colonial / post-colonial contexts

Send all submissions or inquiries to: dgb.conference@ualberta.ca

DEADLINE for Submissions is: 1 OCTOBER 2015

Acceptance of papers to be announced: 1 December 2015

HISRECO 2016, Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues,
I’d like just to remind you of the call for contributions for HISRECO 2016 (below).
Best wishes,
Pedro Garcia Duarte pgduarte @ USP.BR

History of Recent Economics Conference

University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
March, 14-15 2016

Call for Contributions by Young Scholars

The tenth *History of Recent Economics Conference* (HISRECO) will be held
at the University of Sao Paulo on March 14-15, 2016. HISRECO, which was
launched in 2007 by an organizing committee comprised of Roger Backhouse, Philippe Fontaine and Tiago Mata, brings together researchers from various disciplines to study the history of economics in the postwar period. It is
the organizers’ belief that this period, which witnessed crucial changes that helped establish economics as one of the dominant discourses in contemporary society, is worth studying for its own sake. The increasing availability of archival materials, along with the development of new methods inherited from the larger history and sociology of knowledge, have helped produce insightful contextual histories of the development of recent economic ideas. In particular, this topic offers good opportunities to young scholars who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to the history of economics but also want to address the current community of
economists.

This is why the History of Economics Society (HES), as part of its New Initiatives program, is sponsoring a small number of young scholars who would like to participate in the next HISRECO conference, and we are trying to secure additional funds for young scholars, who will have their travel, accommodation and meal expenses covered. Accordingly, we invite all PhD students as well as researchers who have obtained their PhD over the past two years (from July 2013 to September 2015) to submit by email a paper proposal of no more than 500 words (as a pdf file, containing your current affiliation and the university and year of your PhD, if this is the case) to Pedro Duarte (pgduarte [AT] usp [DOT] br) by *September 30th*, 2015. Selected participants will be informed by October 26th, 2015.

For those who want to know more about HISRECO, a list of past conferences
and contributors can be found at http://www.hisreco.org.

CFP: Conference on Conflict and Development (Irvine, February 19-21, 2016)

Call for Papers

All UC economic History Group in conjunction with the Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of California Irvine:

Location: Irvine, California

Dates: Feb. 19, 20, and 21, 2016.

Theme: Conflict and Development: Perspectives from History, Economics, and Politics.
Conference Organizers: Dan Bogart, UC Irvine, and Stergios Skaperdas, UC Irvine
Conflict is endemic in the world. Its financial toll is enormous to say nothing of the human costs. Some economists have estimated that the total costs of conflict and enforcement of contracts represent at least 10% of national income. Historical studies have shown that regions plagued by severe conflict in the past are often more poor today. One view is that conflict breeds political and social institutions that stifle development. However, there is an argument that in Europe war helped to foster the development of strong fiscal states, which subsequently aided in economic development through infrastructure and enforcement of property rights. An historical perspective thus has much to offer in terms of understanding the effects of conflict. The tools of political science also illuminate how the state is organized and responds to pressures brought by conflict. This conference aims bring together scholars from several disciplines to shed light on conflict and development.

We invite proposals for papers on the main theme of the conference. We also especially encourage graduate students from the University of California to propose papers as well as specialists in the area of conflict in any university. The due date for proposals is Oct. 1, 2015.

Please send a two-page paper proposal to Dan Bogart, dbogart @ uci.edu and Lauren Thomas, lhthomas @ ucdavis.edu.

2016 Business History Conference Call for papers (March 31-April 2, 2016)

Reinterpretation

2016 Business History Conference Annual Meeting

Portland, Oregon, March 31-April 2, 2016

Reinterpretation is the theme of the 2016 Business History Conference meeting. The BHC had its inception in reinterpretation. Much of the early work of the BHC revolved around supporting or refuting Alfred D. Chandler’s once dominant narrative of nineteenth and early twentieth century corporate America, (the rise of the managerial hierarchy, and its spread to other, mostly industrialized, countries). So much was absent in Chandler’s brilliant narrative of the managerial state – the government, the innovative company, the entrepreneur, the network – that its very success at reaching a large and influential, predominantly American, public spawned a generation of corrective and opposing scholarship that lasted to the end of the 20th century. Since then much has been gained from opening geographically and temporally to Europe, Asia, and Latin America and by stretching to intersect with related disciplines. More recently the work of Geoffrey Jones has made us look at the activities of multinationals and the impact of globalization on developing countries in a new way. In related fields of history reinterpretations such as Ira Katznelson’s Fear Itself, which focuses on the U.S. Congress and the shaping of the New Deal, suggests implications for business history that still remain to be explored. Philip Scranton and Patrick Fridenson’s book Reimagining Business History challenges their fellow scholars to rethink fundamental assumptions and to consider what a reimagined past might tell us about the future.

The location of the 2016 BHC meeting in Portland provides the opportunity to consider taking a fresh look at what might be termed the communities of the Pacific. The rise of Atlantic History toward the end of the 20th century spurred a new look at the relationships between Europe, Africa, and the Americas. Similarly, a need to understand more of the story of the Pacific should prompt business historians whose work deals with commerce in and between all countries on the Pacific Rim to consider reinterpreting what is known or believed about the commercial relationships and activities that have encircled or spanned the Pacific Ocean for centuries.

The Business History Conference program committee for 2016 — Rowena Olegario (Chair), Peter Coclanis, Marcelo Bucheli, Julia Yongue, and Margaret Graham (BHC President) — encourages panels and individual papers that answer the call to Reinterpretation, expansively interpreted. Topics that examine the forces shaping our future by reinterpreting research related to the Pacific Rim are but one important example of numerous “settled” or incomplete bodies of business history scholarship from which reinterpretation promises to generate fresh constructs and new insights. In keeping with longstanding BHC policy the Program Committee will give equal consideration to submissions not directly related to the conference theme.

All sessions take place at the Embassy Suites Portland-Downtown, located in the historic Multnomah Hotel building. Rooms (all suites) are $145/night and include a full breakfast.

The program committee will consider both individual papers and entire panels. Individual paper proposals should include a one-page (300 word) abstract and one-page curriculum vitae (CV). Panel proposals should include a cover letter stating the rationale for the panel and the name of its contact person; one-page (300 word) abstract and author’s CV for each paper; and a list of preferred panel chairs and commentators with contact information. To submit a proposal go to http://thebhc.org/2016meeting and click on the link Submit a Paper/Panel Proposal.

The K. Austin Kerr Prize will be awarded for the best first paper delivered by a new scholar at the annual meeting. A “new scholar” is defined as a doctoral candidate or a Ph. D. whose degree is less than three years old. You must nominate your paper for this prize on the proposal submission page where indicated. Please check the appropriate box if your proposal qualifies for inclusion in the Kerr Prize competition.

The deadline for receipt of all proposals is 1 October 2015. Acceptance letters will be sent by 31 December 2015.Everyone appearing on the program must register for the meeting. Graduate students and recent PhDs (within 3 years of receipt of degree) whose papers are accepted for the meeting may apply for funds to partially defray their travel costs; information will be sent out once the program has been set.

The BHC awards the Herman E. Krooss Prize for the best dissertation in business history by a recent Ph.D. in history, economics, business administration, the history of science and technology, sociology, law, communications, and related fields. To be eligible, dissertations must be completed in the three calendar years immediately prior to the 2016 annual meeting, and may only be submitted once for the Krooss prize. After the Krooss committee has reviewed the proposals, it will ask semi-finalists to submit copies of their dissertations. Finalists will present summaries of their dissertations at a plenary session of the 2016 BHC annual meeting and will receive a partial subsidy of their travel costs to the meeting. Proposals accepted for the Krooss Prize are not eligible for the Kerr Prize. If you wish to apply for this prize please send a cover letter indicating you are applying for the Krooss prize along with a one-page CV and one-page (300 word) dissertation abstract via email to BHC @ Hagley.org. The deadline for proposals for the Krooss prize is 1 October 2015.

The BHC Doctoral Colloquium in Business History will be held in conjunction with the BHC annual meeting. This prestigious workshop, funded by Cambridge University Press, will take place in Portland Wednesday March 30 and Thursday March 31. Typically limited to ten students, the colloquium is open to early stage doctoral candidates pursuing dissertation research within the broad field of business history, from any relevant discipline. Topics (see link for past examples) may range from the early modern era to the present, and explore societies across the globe. Participants work intensively with a distinguished group of BHC-affiliated scholars (including at least two BHC officers), discussing dissertation proposals, relevant literatures and research strategies, and career trajectories. Applications are due by 15 November 2015 via email to BHC @ Hagley.org should include: a statement of interest; CV; preliminary or final dissertation prospectus (10-15 pages); and a letter of support from your dissertation supervisor (or prospective supervisor). Questions about the colloquium should be sent to its director, Edward Balleisen, eballeis @ duke.edu. All participants receive a stipend that partially defrays travel costs to the annual meeting. Applicants will receive notification of the selection committee’s decisions by 20 December 2015.

General questions regarding the BHC’s 2016 annual meeting may be sent to Secretary-Treasurer Roger Horowitz, rh @ udel.edu.
