The Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) is now accepting proposals for our 43rd Annual Conference, to be held from May 30 to June 2, 2018, at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Call for Papers is open until February 15, 2018. Our general theme is Early Modern Origins of Growth and Business. However, proposals for presentations on any aspect of ancient to recent economic, social or business history are welcome, as are proposals for whole panels. We welcome submissions from graduate students and non-academic affiliates.

The keynote speaker will be Deirdre N. McCloskey, Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication, University of Illinois at Chicago, and the plenary speaker Uskali Mäki, Academy Professor and Professor of Practical Philosophy, University of Helsinki. Both have astounding merits in combining economics, history, and philosophy in their work.
