Economic History Society Annual Conference
2 – 4 April 2004
Royal Holloway, University of London

Call for Academic Papers

The 2004 annual conference of the Economic History Society will be hosted by Royal Holloway, University of London from 2 to 4 April at its Egham Campus.

The conference programme committee welcomes proposals in all aspects of economic and social history covering a wide range of periods and countries, and particularly welcomes papers of an interdisciplinary nature.

The committee invites proposals for individual papers, as well as for entire sessions (3-4 speakers, 1.5 hours duration). The latter should include proposals and synopses for each paper in the session, although the committee reserves the right to determine which papers will be presented in the session if it is accepted. If a session is not accepted, the committee may incorporate one or more of the proposed papers into other panels.

For each proposed paper, please send (preferably by email) a brief c.v. and a short abstract of 400-500 words to:

Maureen Galbraith
Economic History Society
Dept of Economic & Social History
University of Glasgow
4 University Gardens
Glasgow G12 8QQ
Scotland, UK
Email: ehsocsec@arts.gla.ac.uk

For full consideration, proposals must be received by 26 September 2003. Notices of acceptance will be sent to individual paper givers by 14 November 2003.

It is the normal expectation that speakers who submit a proposal for a paper to the Conference Committee should be able to obtain independent financial support for their travel and conference attendance. However, a very limited support fund exists to assist overseas speakers who are unable to obtain funding from their own institution or from another source. Details of this fund and an application form can be obtained from the Society’s administrative secretary, Maureen Galbraith (ehsocsec@arts.gla.ac.uk). It is important that a completed application form is included with the paper proposal and the brief c.v. which are submitted to the conference committee for the September deadline. Only in exceptional circumstances will later applications for support be considered.


Call for New Researchers’ Papers

The 2004 annual conference of the Economic History Society will be hosted by Royal Holloway, University of London from 2 to 4 April at RHUL’s Egham Campus.

The annual conference of the Economic History Society opens with papers presented by new researchers. They offer those completing doctorates the opportunity to present their work before professional colleagues and to benefit from informed comment.

The session will be held on the afternoon of Friday 2 April 2004. Those wishing to be considered for inclusion in the programme at Royal Holloway must submit a synopsis by 26 September 2003. This should provide a firm title, a succinct summary of the principal themes and methodology of the paper, and an outline of probable conclusions.

The synopsis should be of not more than 500 words. It must be accompanied by a clear statement of the progress of research, intended date for submission of thesis, and a statement of support from the supervisor. Please note that proposals from researchers at an early stage of their work will not normally be accepted.

Those selected for inclusion in the programme will be asked to submit a paper, not exceeding 2500 words, by 5 January 2004 for circulation in the Conference booklet. Each new researcher will have the opportunity to speak for twenty minutes, followed by ten minutes of discussion. The student’s supervisor will normally be expected to chair the session. A prize of £250 will be awarded for the best paper presented at the Conference by a new researcher.

The Economic History Society is able to offer limited financial support to enable new researchers to attend the Conference when this is not available from their institution.

Synopses and any enquiries should be directed (preferably by email) to:

Dr Emmett Sullivan
Department of History
Faculty of History and Social Sciences
Royal Holloway and Bedford New College
