40th APHES Conference in Portugal in November

Carcavelos Campus (Portugal), 20-21 November 2020

The Nova School of Business and Economics will host the 40th Conference of the Portuguese Economic and Social History Association on the topic ‘Economic and Social History: Past, Present and Future’, in November 2020.

The Portuguese Association of Economic and Social History turns 40 and took advantage of the anniversary to assess the evolution of this academic field and its prospects. Although the the old macro-narratives centered on economic growth or the concepts of social class or status continue to be well alive, the agenda of Economic and Social History has expanded to include new dimensions: institutions, education, inequality, firms, gender or ethnic groups. Thanks to this process, the discipline has established links with other academic disciplines or approaches, such as economics, sociology, anthropology, environmental studies or cultural history. Due to the open nature of the subject of this year’s conference, APHES invites all researchers in economic and social history to submit proposal for panels or individual papers on the topics they are currently developing, thus showcasing the thematic richness that defines this academic field today. As is usual in APHES’ conferences, proposal or panels on any historical period are accepted.

Paper proposals should include 4 keywords, an abstract (max. 500 words) indicating the topic, the aims, the theoretical approach and the empirical foundations; and a CV of 300-400 words. Panel proposals should include the same information for each participant and paper. They should include three papers and a chair for each proposed panel.
