The Economic History Association will hold its 81st annual meeting at the Hilton El Conquistador Resort in Tucson, Arizona on October 29-31, 2021 with between 175-200 members in attendance and a larger online audience. We invite you to participate in our tabletop book exhibit, advertise in our program, provide an insert for our registration packets, and/or sponsor the conference.

The book display is an important feature of our meeting. Scholars learn about new (and older!) titles. Particularly valuable are the exhibits from smaller presses who may have only a handful of titles in our field and whose regular advertising and marketing budget might miss economic historians. Economic history and other textbooks are also very popular items. It is free for publishers to exhibit books in the book display.

Economic History Association members are graduate students and faculty members from economics and history departments (as well as business schools), from the United States and abroad. Our interests include (among others): economic and business history, American, European and Latin history, social and cultural history, women’s history, demographic history, immigration history, applied economics and economic theory, and history of economic thought.

The rates for participation are:

*              to exhibit titles:  free of charge

*              to insert a flyer or brochure in each of the registration packets:  free with exhibiting books

*              to place a one-page B/W advertisement in each of the program booklets: free with exhibiting books
