Call for Proposals

        The theme of the program is Finance and Economic Modernization.  The 2001 Meeting theme encourages fresh examinations of the relationships between financial developments and economic modernization throughout history.

        The program committee consists of Co-Chair Angela Redish, Co-Chair Hugh Rockoff, Ann Carlos and John James.  The committee especially encourages proposals for papers and sessions that address questions such as: how strong is the finance-modernization nexus? can some types of financial development be detrimental to economic stability and growth?  and, how confident are we that causality runs from good financial arrangements to economic modernization, rather than the reverse? The committee welcomes proposals for entire sessions as well as for individual papers.  The former should include proposals for each paper in the session.  The committee reserves the right to determine which papers will be presented in those sessions that are accepted.  Papers for sessions that were not accepted may be incorporated into other panels.

To propose a paper, send three copies of a 3-5 page abstract and a 150 word abstract suitable for publication in the Journal of Economic History to Angela Redish, Department of Economics, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, CANADA V6T 1W5, or Hugh Rockoff, Department of Economics, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ 08903, by Friday, January 29, 2001.  Proposals may also be submitted by using the form available from the EHA website: http://www.eh.net.  If a draft of the paper is available, it should be sent in addition to the abstracts.  Notices of acceptance will be sent by March 30, 2000.  Angela Redish and Hugh Rockoff may be contacted for more information at anju@econ.ubc.ca and rockoff@fas-econ.rutgers.edu.

 

Call for Dissertations

        Those who expect to receive their Ph.D. in the academic year 2000/2001 are invited to apply for inclusion in the dissertation session at the 2001 annual meeting.  Dissertations on U.S. or Canadian history chosen for presentation at the meetings will be finalists for the Allan Nevins Prize.  Such dissertations should be sent to Howard Bodenhorn, Department of Economics, Lafayette College, Easton, PA 18042-1776.

        Dissertations on areas of the world other than the United States or Canada will be eligible for the Alexander Gerschenkron Prize.  Such dissertations should be sent to Alan Dye, Department of Economics, Barnard College, New York, NY, 10027.

        Applicants must send a copy of the dissertation to the appropriate convener no later than Monday, May 31, 2001. Those chosen for the session will each receive a Finalist’s Award of $250.

News about the Journal

        We're currently putting the finishing touches on the December 2000 issue. That's volume 60, no. 4. The longevity of the JEH is due to both stability and change. Gavin Wright, new in July as the editor on the North American side, is perpetuating the long history of the highest standards while putting his own stamp on the journal. He has tapped Scott Wilson, the Associate Director of the Social Science History Institute, to give him a hand at Stanford. Correspondence for the North American Office should be sent to The Journal of Economic History; Social Science History Institute; Building 200, Room 3; Stanford University; Stanford, CA 94305-2024. Susan Isaac provides a little institutional history in her fifth year as assistant editor. Jan de Vries and Heath Pearson are taking their leadership role seriously, as Berkeley is now the senior editorial office. They've updated the style sheet to eliminate rules that had outlived their usefulness—some from the pre-computer era. The revised style sheet is available at http://www.eh.net/ehnet/EHA/ (go to "Publications," then "The Journal of Economic History," then go to the last line on the page), or by e-mail from either of the editorial offices.

  Travel Grants  

Building Economic History Bridges between Japan and the United States

       


The EHA has received funding from the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission to provide short-term travel grants for three EHA members to go to Japan in the Summer or Fall of 2001.  Support will include round-trip airfare, State Department per diem, and payment for a Japanese student host.  Additional support may be provided by the Japanese host institution. 

        The intent of the program is to develop scholarly exchanges and broaden collegiality between economic historians in the United States and Japan. The precise purpose of the visit is open as long as it furthers scholarship in the field of economic history and involves a Japanese institution of higher education and its associated members. Applicants should ideally have a Japanese university, research institution, or individual invite them and host their visit.

 

 

Application Procedure: Applications, due February 14, 2001, must include: (1) a brief statement of purpose (about one single-spaced page) including why the visit would help build economic history bridges between Japan and the United States, (2) the name of the Japanese university or institution and/or individual who will host the visit (include a statement describing contact with host and letter/e-mail of invitation), and (3) vitae.  Additional information may be requested by the EHA-JUSFC Committee.  Applicants must be current members of the EHA.  Applicants will be informed of the committee’s selections by mid-March.  Send applications to:
