The goal of this conference is to bring international researchers together, permitting a comparative analysis of wealth and economic development, globally, in the middle ages, c. 300 – c. 1500. What were the foundations of medieval growth? How was growth characterized? 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.
We seek papers which address these issues of growth, development, and globalization during the medieval period for any country or countries. We particularly welcome submissions that focus on non-European experiences. Graduate students are encourage 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 funding applications) to both conference organizers by October 15, 2004. Notification of acceptance will be made before November 1, 2004.
