Economic History Association 70st Annual Meeting
Economic and Historical Perspectives on Places, Periods, and Institutions
Scholars who work on a single locality, period, or institution usually have in mind some comparative question, although the comparative dimension is often implicit rather than explicitly articulated. Recently, formal comparative approaches have figured more prominently in economic history. These approaches take various forms, from detailed qualitative studies of two or more cases to quantitative examinations of large numbers of countries. This conference seeks to provoke a dialog between the comparative and the specific by attracting a broad range of implicitly or explicitly comparative papers. What do we learn from comparative work? How can we make better comparisons? What would we lose if all work was comparative?
