The 1st History of Economic Thought Diversity Caucus Online Conference will be held via Zoom, May 24-26, 2021, in advance of the annual meetings of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought (ESHET). Our goal is to spread sessions out over several days in order to include speakers and audience members across multiple continents, and several time zones. We seek contributions that address topics, themes, personae, and institutions that typically, and too often, go unaddressed in professional forums. We are especially interested in contributions that explore the meaning of diversity, pluralism, and inclusion for the history of economic thought and related fields, and its significance for practitioners in these fields. Papers scheduled to be presented at either the ESHET or History of Economics Society conferences are eligible for the Diversity Caucus Conference.
A selection of papers presented at the Diversity Caucus Conference may be published (in English) in Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology, subject to peer review.
If you would like to present at the Conference, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. Co-authored papers are encouraged. Abstracts in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, and Japanese will be considered, but we ask that speakers either present in English or provide English-language presentation materials (e.g., Powerpoint slides, a translated manuscript), in order to facilitate communication and discussion.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2021. Notifications will be sent after April 1, 2021. Final papers will be due by May 15, 2021.
