The EBHS 43rd Annual Conference, University of Jyväskylä, Finland, May 30-June
2, 2018
MAY 30-JUNE 2, 2018

The 43rd Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) Annual Conference will be
held at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Our general theme is Early
Modern Origins of Growth and Business. However, proposals for presentations on
any aspect of ancient to recent economic, social or business history are
welcome, as are proposals for whole panels. We welcome submissions from graduate
students and non-academic affiliates.

The Jyväskylä Conference will also be held as the 16th Gustav Wasa Seminarium.
Wasa ruled Sweden from 1523 to 1560 and initiated many social and political
reforms that were vital to the formation of modern institutions in Sweden and in
after 1809 separated autonomous Finland. We therefore wholeheartedly welcome
panels and individual papers discussing economic and social development around
the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions during the early modern period. The conference
also teams up with the 35th Summer Seminar of Finnish Economists, organized by
the JYU School of Business and Economics, so the conferees will have rich
academic and social programs available.

The keynote speaker will be Deirdre N. McCloskey, Distinguished Professor of
Economics, History, English, and Communication, University of Illinois at
Chicago, and the plenary speaker Uskali Mäki, Academy Professor and Professor
of Practical Philosophy, University of Helsinki. Both have astounding merits in
combining economics, history, and philosophy in their work. Furthermore, their
mutual dialogue in researching philosophy and methodology of economics extends
to the 1980s.

The social program will include a dinner, a lake cruise and an optional museum
visit to either Alvar Aalto Museum or the Finnish Airforce Museum.

Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 500 words and contact
details. The deadline for submission of proposals is February 15, 2018. The
Program Chair will send a notification of acceptance of abstracts by March 1,
2018. Online registration will be available soon after at www.ebhsoc.org/.
Proposals may be submitted through the EBHS website at www.ebhsoc.org (by email
to ebhs2018 at ebhsoc.org. If you have further questions about the meeting or
organization please contact Program Chair Olli Turunen, oturunen at wisc.edu, or
EBHS 2018 President Jari Eloranta, elorantaj at appstate.edu. Local arrangements
will be coordinated by Jari Ojala (University of Jyväskylä).

EBHS also operates a peer-reviewed open access journal, Essays in Economic and
Business History, edited by Jason Taylor (Central Michigan University).
Conference papers and non-conference papers alike may be submitted to Essays for
consideration. We invite you to visit our website, www.ebhsoc.org/journal, to
see our editorial board and policies, as well as back issues.

We look forward to welcoming you to Jyväskylä!
