Transitions in Economic History
The advanced nations of the world have undergone a number of transitions that other nations are only now experiencing or have yet to experience. These include transitions of a grand sort, such as revolution, independence from colonial rule, constitutional change, the end of slavery and serfdom, and the emergence of a market economy, but include many others that were identified long ago by Simon Kuznets and other scholars as part and parcel of the process of economic development. These include the demographic transition, the decline of the family farm, the rise of services, and the emergence of a multi-ethnic population. These transitions have proceeded more smoothly in some nations than others and they have not taken place everywhere with the same speed. Some may be seen as having been more successful than others.
What can the developing nations and EU applicant countries learn from all this? Why have these transitions been more successful in some places? What determines the speed of transitions? Does the speed matter to eventual success? Can the process be accelerated? What has been the impact on the standard of living and the distribution of income and wealth during the process?
Program proposals, due January 31, 2003, can be submitted to the Program Committee (Joshua Rosenbloom, Peter Coclanis, and Jane Humphries) online at www.eh.net/eha.
Graduate students are encouraged to attend. Travel and hotel subsidies, registration and meal discounts, free meals, and the possibility of scintilating conversation are all offered as enticements.
The dissertation session, convened by Paul Rhode and Mark Thomas, will honor the top six dissertations in economic history completed during the 2002-2003 academic year. The local arrangements committee, headed by Jeremy Atack of Vanderbilt University looks forward to welcoming you to their warm and friendly city.
