Call for papers and sessions
The Greek Economic History Association in collaboration with the Department of History of the Ionian University, organizes the 4th International Conference in Economic and Social History. The Conference will address the theme “Varieties of Capitalism in the Mediterranean (18th-20th century)” and will be hosted by the Ionian University in Corfu on 1-3 October 2020.
Capitalism is seen as a phenomenon of global history enhanced by transnational transactions; the conference seeks to re-examine the various forms and patterns of capitalism in the Mediterranean region as an essential concept for understanding modernities. Considering the pre-eighteenth-century historical experience of capitalist activity in the Mediterranean, can we identify Mediterranean patterns of economic modernity in individual or group choices, strategies and profits? What were the features of merchant and financial capitalism that emerged in the Mediterranean after the eighteenth century? What was the role played by political authority (imperial, national, colonial) in capitalist development? How did the natural environment shape capitalist development and how has it been transformed by it? Also in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries the Mediterranean world became the area of intense economic activity and political conflict that transcended religious and - since the nineteenth century – national boundaries, and was gradually transformed by the emergence of national economies. We invite sessions and papers that will discuss structures and behaviors to explore continuity and change in various entrepreneurial paths in the Mediterranean.
Other topics that the conference may include are: histories of merchant capitalism; pre-industrial and industrial capitalism; pre-capitalist and capitalist agriculture; production and consumption; financial institutions, sovereign debt and financial control; shipping and port economies; mobility and migration networks; class and social structures; race and gender relations; culture and capitalism in the Mediterranean.
