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 @ eui.eu. 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 @ uni-tuebingen.de . 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?

CfP: WEast workshop in Prague 1-2 July 2016 in economic history of Eastern, Central, and South-Eastern Europe

CALL FOR PAPERS

WEast workshop in Economic History and Development: Economics and Institutions in History

Location/Hosting institution: Faculty of Economics, University of Economics in Prague (VŠE)

Date: 1-2 July 2016

Deadline for applications: 31st January 2016

Keynote speaker: James A. Robinson, University of Chicago

Local organizers: Miroslav Zajíček (chairman), Tomáš Cvrček

WEast organizers: Tamás Vonyó, Mikołaj Malinowski, Jacob Weisdorf

Institutional change can cast a long shadow. Central and Eastern Europe has been the scene of several sudden, radical institutional overhauls in the last century alone. This fact makes the region one of the most fruitful research grounds for those who are interested in studying the impact of institutions on economic development and vice versa. The WEast network was established in 2011 with a view to highlight the importance of research on Central and Eastern Europe and its contribution not only to our understanding of historical developments in the region but also of broader question of history, politics and economics.

The WEast workshop in Prague will offer an opportunity to share and discuss ideas and research pertaining to these questions. Organizers from the Department of Institutional, Environmental and Experimental Economics of The University of Economics in Prague/Vysoká škola ekonomická v Praze (VŠE) invite both established researchers and graduate students to submit their scientific work. We particularly welcome research into general economic issues from a historical perspective or into less widely known aspects of Central and Eastern Europe’s development.

Those wishing to participate should email their research paper and/or extended abstract along with short academic CV to Miroslav Zajíček (miroslav.zajicek @ vse.cz) no later than 31st January 2016. Selected participants will be informed soon afterwards. There is no participation fee but travel expenses and hotel accommodation costs will be borne by the participants themselves. Participation package includes free catering. We can also arrange free accommodation in single room student dorms for those on limited budget. Further details about exact arrangements will be communicated to selected participants and also made available at http://weast.info/. The University of Economics in Prague / Vysoká škola ekonomická v Praze is a leading institution of economic and business education in the Czech Republic. The Department of Institutional, Environmental and Experimental Economics is a home to a group of young dynamic scholars with an active research agenda. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact miroslav.zajicek @ vse.cz.
