Since 2007, HISRECO has brought together researchers from various backgrounds to study the history of economics in the postwar period. 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.
We invite researchers in the history of postwar economics and related fields to submit a paper proposal of no more than 800 words. Paper proposals that use approaches from the history and sociology of science, or cultural and science studies will be particularly appreciated. Proposals should be sent electronically (as a pdf file) to François Allisson (Francois [dot] Allisson [at] unil [dot] ch) by October 11, 2019. Successful applicants will be informed by October 25 1, 2019.
We aim to provide financial support to selected participants, but as yet cannot make any firm commitments on this. Preference will be given to young scholars. Scholars who are interested in such funding should include in their proposal a CV of no more than two pages, including current affiliation and year of thesis defense (if applicable) and a list of publications.
The organizing committee: François Allisson (University of Lausanne), Cléo Chassonnery-Zaïgouche (CRASSH, University of Cambridge), Pedro Duarte (University of São Paulo and Insper), Yann Giraud (University of Cergy-Pontoise) and Harro Maas (University of Lausanne).
