HES 2015 Call for Papers

The Annual History of Economics Society Conference for 2015 will held at Michigan State University from June 26th to June 29th. Papers dealing with any aspect of the history of economic thought are welcome, including work related to any period or any school of economic thought. Also welcome are papers that situate economics in wider intellectual and cultural contexts or relate it to other disciplines, and work related to the history of closely cognate disciplines (e.g., statistics with economic applications or economic sociology). Essentially, any work that touches the history of economics as a discipline or that would be of interest to scholars working in such an area is encouraged.

To propose a paper:

Please send a title, a paper abstract (not longer than 200 words), and the name and contact information of the paper’s author(s) to hes2015@econ.msu.edu by March 1 2015.

To propose a session:

I am interested in considering proposals for complete sessions, including sets of papers related to a focused theme, or panel discussions of a well-defined topic. If you would like to propose such a session, or some other type of session that you believe would be of interest to our membership, please include a title for the session, a brief description of the session’s unifying theme, and the names of at least two other scholars who will participate. If the proposed session is a set of papers, please include titles and abstracts of the papers. Submit session proposals to me at hes2015@econ.msu.edu by March 1.

Young Scholars

The HES provides special support for up to ten Warren J. and Sylvia J. Samuels Young Scholars to present papers at the conference, in the form of free registration, banquet and reception tickets, and a year's membership in the society. Five of the Young Scholars awardees will also receive a  grant of $500 to cover travel and accommodation costs. If you wish to have your paper considered for the Young Scholars program, please provide details of the date of your last degree (or your current graduate student status) when submitting your paper proposal to hes2015@econ.msu.edu, and indicate that you wish to be considered for the Samuels Young Scholars program. A Young Scholar must currently be a PhD candidate, or have been awarded a PhD in the 2 years preceding the conference. The deadline for application is March 1st .
