Coping with Crises will bring together researchers exploring various forms of economic and social crises across traditional time periods to generate a greater understanding of the meaning and usefulness of the term crisis within history. Different forms of crisis have been explored in nearly every strand of history, ranging from agrarian famines to epidemiological outbreaks, and from financial collapses to disasters precipitated by conflict and trade disputes.
- The historical concept and meaning of crisis
- The transformative nature of crisis and its role in economic development
- Contemporary perceptions, interpretations and responses to specific crises
- The mechanisms of crises and the importance of exogenous or endogenous factors
- The social, political and religious causes and consequences of economic crises
We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers or panels of three papers exploring crisis across traditional time periods. Please send a title or abstract to Alex Brown, Andy Burn and Rob Doherty at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday 22 February 2013.
