CALL FOR PAPERS
The annual HES Conference will take place at the Faculty House of Columbia University in New
York City, 20-23 of June 2019. 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.
Although we welcome proposals for individual papers, proposals for complete sessions are
especially encouraged. To submit a paper or session proposal, go to the conference web
page https://historyofeconomics.org/hes2019/, where there is a link to a form for making
submissions. Those proposing papers will be asked to submit an abstract of less than 250 words,
while those proposing sessions will be asked for an abstract of less than 500 words that lists all
participants, titles and very brief descriptions of the papers to be included.
The HES website for conference registration (https://historyofeconomics.org/hes2019/) will open
on January 2, and will provide information on several hotels where blocks of reduced rate rooms
have been reserved.
We encourage scholars from neighboring disciplines to participate; please see the past
conference programs posted on the HES website. Inquiries regarding session proposals are most
welcome, and should be addressed to Jeff Biddle at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of the conference
sessions will be an hour and a half but there will be hour long sessions as well. So you could
propose a session with two, three or four papers.
The DEADLINE for submissions is February 15 2019.
The early registration deadline for the conference is February 28.
