The Economics Network of the Social Science History Association calls for papers for the 2011 Social Science History Association conference.
Please forward this message to anyone you know who may be interested. Our apologies for the inevitable multiple receipt of this message for many of you.
The Social Science History Association conference for 2011 will be held in Boston (MA) in the Boston Park Plaza Hotel and Towers, from November 17-20. The conference theme is "Generation to Generation."
SSHA draws submissions of papers and panels through networks organized by topic or field. The Economics network representatives are
Sumner La Croix
Peter Meyer OR
We invite submissions of papers or (preferably) full panels by Tuesday, February 15, 2011. We are also interested to hear from specialists who are willing to volunteer to be chairs or discussants, and on what topics. For more information including the conference-wide call for papers, and the other networks please see the SSHA website at http://www.ssha.org.
The economics network meeting at the November 2010 meetings generated numerous ideas for panel sessions, many of which are related to the conference theme of "Generation to Generation," or the local surroundings. Other submissions related to social science history that can be incorporated into interdisciplinary panels are welcome. Please contact the network chairs with any questions.
Submissions of either individual papers or whole sessions are welcome. This year all panels of research papers must have four papers when submitted, or the panel will not be accepted. (In the past panels of three papers have been allowed.)
Please submit paper and session proposals at http://conference.ssha.org.
You will need to provide an abstract, title and contact information, and designate a network (or networks) where your paper is likely to fit. You are free to email us with questions, ideas, etc. but the actual submission is all self-serve.
Topic areas identified at our 2010 network meeting include those listed below. Where an email is listed, please contact that person directly to discuss paper and panel proposals. Other enquiries should be sent to any of the network representatives listed above.
