Welcome to the 50th Annual Meeting of the

History of Economics Society

The Annual Conference of the History of Economics Society is one of the most important international gatherings of historians of economics. The conference provides an opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues, to learn about new research in the field, and to talk with journal and book editors and bloggers.

We are hosting our welcome reception on the evening of Thursday, June 22. Our 50th Annual Meetings will take place June 23 to 25 at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel in Vancouver, Canada.

Vancouver has hosted three other History of Economics Society conferences; this will be the first in the City’s downtown core, close to Stanley Park, Canada Place.

The Vancouver International Airport (YVR, CYVR) is located on Sea Island in Richmond, British Columbia, 16 km (7.5 miles) from the conference hotel by car; 38 minutes via SkyTrain’s Canada Line to Waterfront Station (plus a 12 minute walk to our conference hotel).

We are very happy to announce our plenary speakers: (i) Tim Brook, perhaps best known for Vermeer’s Hat (2008) but speaking to us on how historical economic data, such as commodity prices, created an awareness of environmental vulnerability, and how such data can help us to write a more closely-grained environmental history while at the same time revising our sense of the formation of global trade networks; and (ii) a panel on the history of economic freedom indices, featuring Michael Walker (founder, Fraser Institute), Robert Lawson (Economic Freedom of the World Report), and Simeon Djankov (LSE). Ross Emmett will give the presidential address.

The 2023 HES Meeting will feature a thread of virtual sessions running between Friday, June 23 and Sunday, June 25. Virtual sessions will be non-hybrid: all presenters and discussants will join remotely. The virtual registration fee will give access to all virtual sessions and plenary events, which will be livestreamed from Vancouver. Ordinary non-virtual sessions will be available exclusively to on-site participants.

Proposals for individual papers and sessions should be submitted using this form. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2023.
