Welcome to the 48th 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.

Due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases, the Universiteit Utrecht, Netherlands has imposed strict meeting guidelines that prevent us from hosting our in-person conference sessions. The 2021 Conference will instead take place December 9-12 virtually. Refunds will be issued to those who purchased in-person registrations and event tickets as soon as possible.
