The authors of the selected papers will have 20 minutes each to present the paper, and a senior scholar will disscuss it. Papers may be on any topic relevant to the history of economic thought, and are not restricted to the conference theme.  

Candidates should e-mail a paper no longer than 9000 words to Professors Richard Sturn ( and Annalisa Rosselli ( by February 9th, 2015. Authors will be notified about the result of the selection process by March 23rd, 2015.

ESHET encourages young scholars to participate in the conference. A one-year ESHET membership is offered to all young scholars who submit a paper. Papers that have not been selected will be considered for presentation at other conference sessions.
