This is a call for papers for a special issue of Scandinavian Economic History
Review on the evolution of the retail trade (including wholesale and logistics)
and consumption from the 19th to the 21st century. At a time of rapid and global
change and modernisation in retailing and consumption, examining long-term
patterns and the drivers of change is highly relevant. Submitted papers should
relate to one of three main sub-themes:

- Retailers and consumers: Papers could address retailer-consumer relations, at
marketing strategies, at consumer behaviour or at consumers’ perception and
reception of retail innovations.

- Public policy and the retail industry: Papers could report on different
aspects of retail sector regulation, from policy-making to its implementation.
This encompasses research on national legislations, on local town planning and
also on the role of trade unions and trade associations.

- Management, organisation and innovation in the retail industry: Papers could
explore innovations and changes in both technology and organisation, either
looking at the sector in its entirety or at one particular store or company.
This could, for example, address issues raised by the diffusion of self-service
in the 20th century or e-commerce in more recent decades.

Aside from the editorial team of SEHR this special issue will have two
co-editors, Associate Professor Fredrik Sandgren, Department of Economic
History, Uppsala University, Sweden and doctoral student Tristan Jacques,
University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne/IDHES, France.

period  or transitional phase from the 19th to the 21st century are welcome.
