CFP: HISRECO (History of Recent Economics Conference), Duke University, 29-3- April 2011

Fifth Annual Conference on the History of Recent Economics 29-30 April 2011, Duke University, Center for the History of Political Economy, North Carolina, USA The Second World War and its aftermath marked a major stage in the establishment of economics as one of the dominant discourses in contemporary societies. The spread of economic ideas into many areas of social life invites mutually profitable engagements between historians of economics and historians of other social sciences. It also presents great potential for those working on the history of economics to broaden their audience beyond those that they have traditionally addressed. The past decade has been witness to a surging interest in the history of economics post-WWII. This new scholarship has made good use of newly available source-materials, rehearsed new methodologies for the study of the past and looked across disciplinary boundaries for insights. In its fifth consecutive year, the HISRECO conference offers a venue f
