European Society for the History of Economic Thought

Forthcoming conference


University of National and World Economy (UNWE), Sofia (Bulgaria)

Development and Underdevelopment in the History of Economic Thought

The 24th Annual Conference of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought (ESHET), initially scheduled 28-30 May 2020, is postponed to 24-26 September 2020.

We hope that all of you who were to present a paper at the conference in May will remain committed and will be in Sofia on 24-26 September 2020. The same applies, of course, to the Young Scholars whose papers have been selected.

All paper or session proposals that were accepted for the May 2020 ESHET Conference remain accepted for the September 2020 ESHET Conference. If you wish to withdraw an accepted proposal, please inform the local organizers ( If you would like to present a different paper, you are invited to submit a new proposal via the Sofia Conference website.

We also welcome new papers submissions. The Sofia Conference website is now open for this, and will remain open until May 31, 2020. The decisions of the Scientific Committee will be communicated on 30 June.

The postponement of the Conference and the opening to new submissions has led us to modify the calendar: the deadline for early registration is postponed to August 14, and the final version of the paper is expected on September 10 (see the Sofia Conference website).
