New conference at the IISH

Call for papers, deadline 15 May 2017: Competition and discussion ‘Economic and social history in the next ten years’, IISH Amsterdam, 10 november 2017

On which themes should economic and social history focus in the coming years? What remains to be researched beyond global history? Are research agendas in danger of narrowing down too much if they are continuously judged for their societal relevance? What will the sources, the data, and techniques of the future be like? Is the future about interdisciplinarity and if so, with which disciplines? Or will we dig once again into the depths of the regional case study?

The editorial board of TSEG-The Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History is organizing a competition for all economic and/or social historians in Flanders and the Netherlands, in particular the younger generation to put their thoughts on the future of the field in the next ten years on paper.

If you would like to participate, please submit a short proposal (1 page) before May 15 to the Editorial Board, Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots.
