The 18th gathering of the World Economic History Congress will convene July 29th – August 3rd 2018 in historic Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Executive Committee of the IEHA welcomes proposals from all members of the international economic history community, whatever their institutional affiliation or status, as well as from scholars in related disciplines.

The 18th World Congress is the second to be hosted in North America and marks the 50th anniversary of the previous occasion. We invite you to join us in Boston to consider the many ‘Waves of Globalization’ that have given rise to the varied and multi-directional connections that characterize the economic and social world we know today. While seeking proposals for sessions that explore facets of this broad theme, we also welcome submissions on the economic and social histories of all places and periods, on the exploration of varied sources and methods, and on the theory and the uses of economic history itself. Furthermore, we invite members to employ and analyze diverse strategies for representing the past.

The IEHA is a capacious organization, and we hope that our program will reflect this strength. To this end, we will consider any submission that advances the study, teaching, and public presentation of economic history in all of its facets. Given the diversity of our affiliated membership we encourage panel proposals that highlight scholarship emerging from economic history, business history, demographic history, environmental history, global and world history, social history, rural and urban history, gender studies, material culture, methodological approaches to historical research, history of economics and economic thought, and other related fields.
