Call for Host: 9th Sound Economic History Workshop
The Sound Economic History Workshop is an annual event, hosted at a different
Scandinavian university each year. Researchers (including PhD students) based
at a Scandinavian university and interested in hosting the 9th Sound Economic
History Workshop in 2014 should contact workshop organizer Jacob Weisdorf
(e-mail: email@example.com) as soon as possible.
Information about the workshop:
The workshop is normally a one-day or two-days event. The workshop host is
expected to provide a venue, including power point equipment, as well as
lunch, dinner, and refreshments during the workshop for its participants.
Typically 25-30 people participate in the workshop. The host is also expected
to cover the expenses associated with inviting one or two prominent keynote
speakers (including the costs of their travel and accommodation). The
remaining workshop participants will pay for their own travel and
accommodation. To help finance the workshop the host can choose to charge a
moderate participation fee (70-100€ per participant).
Previous hosts include the University of Copenhagen (Denmark), Gothenburg
(Sweden), Lund (Sweden), Tampare (Finland), Uppsala (Sweden), and the
Norwegian Business School (Norway). Previous keynote speakers include Gareth
Austin (Geneva), Steve Broadberry (LSE), Greg Clark (UC Davis), Giovanni
Federico (Pisa), Bernard Harris (Southampton), Mary Hilson (UCL), Tim Leunig
(LSE), Leandro Prados (Carlos III Madrid), Kevin O’Rourke (Oxford), and
Patrick Wallis (LSE).
The main aim of the workshop is to gather primarily Scandinavian and
Scandinavian-based researchers, who are interested in economic and social
history, in a friendly and non-imposing environment where they can present
their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers and
leading economic historians. Non-Scandinavian researchers are also welcome to
Another aim of the workshop is to demonstrate the breadth of economic history
as an academic discipline, especially among Scandinavian researchers, so
there is usually no theme to the workshop, and submissions are encouraged
from any sub-field of economic and social history.
The workshop is open for presentations by PhD students and post-docs, but
more experienced researchers are also encouraged to participate, either as
commentators or presenters. Non-presenting PhD students are also welcome to
