CfP: 14th History of Recent Economics Conference (ESSCA School of Management, Angers, FR), 05-06 November 2021

November 05-06th, 2021

Local organizer: Matthieu Ballandonne

The fourteenth History of Recent Economics Conference (HISRECO) will be held at the ESSCA School of management, Angers (France) on 05-06 November 2020. In case of Covid restrictions, the conference will be online. Since 2007, HISRECO has brought together researchers from various backgrounds to study the history of economics in the postwar period. The increasing availability of archival materials, along with the development of new perspectives inherited from the larger history and sociology of knowledge, has helped to provide insightful histories of the development of recent economic practices, ideas, and techniques. In particular, this area of research offers good opportunities to young scholars who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to the history of economics.

We invite researchers in the history of postwar economics and related fields to submit a paper proposal of no more than 800 words. Paper proposals that use approaches from the history and sociology of science, or cultural and science studies will be particularly appreciated. Proposals should be sent electronically (as a pdf file) to Matthieu Ballandonne by June 30th. Successful applicants will be informed by July 12th. To foster discussions during the conference, full drafts will have to be sent by October 22nd.

The organizing committee: Matthieu Ballandonne (ESSCA School of Management, Angers), Cléo Chassonnery-Zaïgouche (CRASSH, University of Cambridge), Pedro Duarte (Insper, São Paulo) and Yann Giraud (CY Cergy Paris Université).
