The annual meeting of the Economic History Association (EHA) will take place in Tucson, Arizona, October 29-31, 2021. Its theme, which should be close to the heart of many SIOE members, is “Rules, Organizations, and Governments: Institutions and Economic History.”
The deadline for paper proposals is February 15 (hence, very soon).
Papers should be submitted individually, but authors may suggest to the Committee that three particular papers fit well together in a panel. Papers should in all cases be works in progress rather than accepted or published work. Submitters should let the program committee know at the time of application if the paper they are proposing has already been submitted for publication. Individuals who presented or co-authored a paper given at the 2020 meeting are not eligible for inclusion in the 2021 program.
Papers and session proposals should be submitted online, via this site. Paper proposals should include a 3-5 page proposal and a 150–word abstract suitable for publication in the Journal of Economic History. Please note that at least one of the authors needs to be a member of EHA. Graduate students are encouraged to attend the meeting.
The association offers subsidies for travel, hotel, registration, and meals, including a special graduate student dinner. A poster session welcomes work from dissertations in progress. Several awards and prizes will be handed out. Details are here.
