European Society for the History of Economic Thought

History of Economics Society sessions at ASSA 2022

 Boston - January 7-9, 2022

The History of Economics Society (HES) will sponsor four sessions at the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA) meetings, January 7-9, 2022, in Boston, MA. The conference hotel will be the Sheraton Boston.
 
The ASSA offers historians of economic thought an opportunity to present high-quality historical research to a wider audience of professional economists. Given this, preference will be given to proposals that are most likely to interest the broader community. Please remember proposals are invited for entire sessions, rather than single papers. Please submit session proposals, including (1) abstracts for each proposed paper, (2) key words, (3) the name, e-mail address and affiliation of each paper presenter and of the chair of the proposed session, to me [Ross Emmet]. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2021.
 
I have received a couple session proposals already, and am looking for a few more. Sessions that are sponsored jointly with another society are welcomed (last year we jointly sponsored a session on racism in economics with the National Economics Association), as are proposals for sessions marking significant events in the discipline: overlooked people/themes, key works, past Nobels (Kahneman/Smith won 20 years ago; Becker won 30 years ago; Stigler won 40 years ago; and Hicks/Arrow won 50 years ago), etc. 
 
If you are planning to submit a proposal, I request that you email me to at least let me know the theme, and any plans for joint sessions with other societies, so that I am aware of what is coming in.
