About Aphes

The Associação Portuguesa de História Económica e Social aims to contribute to the progress of studies in economic and social history.

The APHES organized 37 yearly scientific conferences. The organization of these conferences is carried out by members of the association in different Portuguese universities. The yearly rotation of the responsibility for organising the annual conference reflects the diversity of the university landscape. It also promotes the development of economic and social history across the national territory.

Vitorino Magalhães Godinho

Lisbon, 1988
"We can only thank him by reading and studying his work, meditating on his example as a thinker and a citizen. And also by seeking ways to re-edit his work, which it is a need. Especially, the indispensable Documents on the Portuguese expansion, which are only awaiting for an editor who wants to pick them up. And they are indispensable."
