We invite Young Scholars interested in the History of Economic Thought, mainly with focus on heterodox economics and pluralism, to submit papers on the topic to our YSI workshop during the Association for Heterodox Economics Conference. The conference will take place at Milton Keynes, England, in July 2-4, 2020. The Workshop will take place during the same days of the Conference.

We aim to organize a workshop that will include three sessions within the Conference, which will focus on these sub-topics (not exclusively):

a) The contributions of pluralist, eclectic, mixed and transdisciplinary economists, institutes, doctrines and schools of thought in the past.
b) The history of academic, political and theoretical struggles among and between economic theories.
c) The history of economic teaching and learning and the conflicts regarding pluralism in economics curricula.

If participants also want to present a paper at the Conference, be it the same they will be presenting at the workshop or another one, they should register at the Conference's website on their own ( The Association for Heterodox Economics will provide a fee waiver for the Conference for selected YSI participants, both presenters and non-presenters at the Conference.
