The Economic History Society has decided to hold its 2021 conference in a virtual format. The conference will shift from its current dates (9-11 April) to 6 – 9 April 2021 and will be held in the afternoon, UK time. This will facilitate international participation and prevent Zoom fatigue.


The deadline for submissions has been extended to 16 November 2020. If you would like to submit a paper, poster or session for the conference, you will first need to Register on this site. Current members of the EHS should note that they too need to Register in the first instance, rather than login with their EHS membership credentials.

Please contact Alice Whiteoak and Maureen Galbraith if you have any questions.
