Conference Sessions

The conference programme committee welcomes proposals for entire sessions of 1.5-2 hours duration on all aspects of economic and social history covering a wide range of periods and countries and, particularly, papers of an interdisciplinary nature. No more than 4 papers will be accepted for any one session.

Session organisers should submit their session proposal first, and then speakers in the session can submit their paper proposals using the normal academic paper submission process. On that form, they will be able to indicate that their paper is in a session and select the session as part of that process.

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 sessions. Preference will be given to sessions that are gender balanced and bring together individuals from more than one university.

Proposals should be submitted online via the link below. You will be asked to submit:

  • The title of the proposed session.
  • The rationale for the session (up to 100 words).
  • A suggested chair for the session

For full consideration, proposals must be received by 28 September 2020. Notices of acceptance will be sent to individual paper givers by the end of November 2020.
