The History of Economics Society (HES) will sponsor four sessions at the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA) meetings, January 5 - 7, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA, USA. The ASSA offers historians of economic thought an opportunity to present high-quality historical research to a wider audience of professional economists. Given this, preference will be given to proposals that are most likely to interest the broader community. Please remember proposals are invited for entire sessions, rather than single papers. Submit session proposals, including abstracts for the proposed papers (approximately 200 words), to Prof. Masazumi Wakatabe, Vice President of HES, at wakatabewasedajp [AT] gmail [DOT] com Deadline: May 1 2017

The History of Economics Society administers a New Initiatives Fund. Competition for funding is open to HES members only. The Society issues two calls for New Initiatives Proposals each fiscal year. The first has a deadline of December 1st, with decisions announced late in January. The second has a deadline of May 15th, with decisions announced early in July. For more details, please see the New Initiatives webpage.

The 2017 HES Conference will be held in downtown Toronto at the University of Toronto (Trinity College) from 22 - 25 June, 2017.
