Call for Papers: 2016 HES Conference, June 17–20, Duke University
The Annual History of Economics Society Conference for 2016 will be held at Duke University (Durham, NC) from June 17 to June 20. Papers dealing with any aspect of the history of economic thought are welcome, including work related to any period or any school of economic thought. Also welcome are papers that situate economics in wider intellectual and cultural contexts or relate it to other disciplines, and work related to the history of closely cognate disciplines.
Although we welcome proposals for individual papers, proposals for complete sessions are especially encouraged. Questions about proposals should be directed to the conference organizer, Mauro Boianovsky.
To propose a paper or a session: Click here to propose a paper, a session or roundtable, or to submit an abstract for a paper that is part of a proposed session. You will be taken to a form designed and hosted by Conference Services at Duke University. If you propose a session, you will be asked to submit an abstract only for the session itself and to list the members of the session. Once you have submitted an abstract for a session, please then ask each member of the session to submit an abstract of his or her paper and to indicate (1) that it is part of a session and (2) the name of the session. The deadline for submitting paper or session proposals is March 1, 2016.

If you wish to have your paper considered for the Young Scholars program, please provide details of the date of your last degree (or your current graduate student status) when submitting your paper proposal and indicate that you wish to be considered for the Samuels Young Scholars program. A Young Scholar must currently be a PhD candidate, or have been awarded a PhD in the two years preceding the conference. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2016.
