“Medieval Global Economies”
University of Western Ontario, London, Canada
November 11 & 12, 2005
The goal of this conference is to bring international researchers together, permitting a comparative analysis, globally, of wealth and economic development in the middle ages, c. 300-c.1500. Who forged ahead in wealth, who fell behind, and of course, when and why? In making these comparisons, we also seek to achieve a greater understanding of the intersection and exchange between countries, the character of global economies, during these centuries. What were the legacies of medieval development and globalization?
We seek previously unpublished papers which address these issues of growth, development, and globalization during the medieval period for any geographical area or areas. We particularly welcome submissions that focus on non-European experiences. Graduate students are encouraged to participate and present their ongoing doctoral research.
Prospective presenters are requested to submit via email a two page abstract and a CV (required for SSHRC applications) to both conference organizers by October 15, 2004. Notification of acceptance will be made before November 1, 2004.
