12th HISRECO conference at the University of Cergy-Pontoise

SitedesChenes-UCPaiThe twelfth History of Recent Economics Conference (HISRECO) will be held at the University of Cergy-Pontoise on October 12-13, 2018. Since 2007 HISRECO has brought together researchers from various backgrounds to study the history of economics in the postwar period. It is the organizers’ belief that this period, during which economics became one of the dominant discourses in contemporary society, is worth studying for its own sake. The increasing availability of archival materials, along with the development of new perspectives inherited from the larger history and sociology of knowledge, has helped to provide insightful histories of the development of recent economic practices, ideas, and techniques. In particular, this area of research offers good opportunities to young scholars who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to the history of economics.

The conference is hosted by the THEMA (UMR CNRS 8184) research center and sponsored by the University’of Cergy’s Institute of Advanced Studies and by the Institute of Economic Research Foundation-Brazil (FIPE, University of São Paulo).

Local organizers: Béatrice Cherrier, Jean-Baptiste Fleury and Yann Giraud.
