Call for Papers EHA 2017:  Macroeconomic Regimes and Policies; the Quest for Economic and Financial Stability and Growth The theme for EHA 2017 is “Macroeconomic Regimes and Policies: the Quest for Economic and Financial Stability and Growth”. Beginning in the second half of the twentieth century, economic historians began to explore macroeconomic history, creating a vast new realm for research. This year the conference will be devoted to this continuing development inviting institutional, narrative, theoretical and empirical research in macroeconomic history. Topics of interest are wide ranging including: the history and origins of monetary, fiscal and financial institutions and markets; monetary and exchange rate regimes (specie, fiat); fiscal regimes; the history of central banks and monetary policy; and the relationship between macroeconomic regimes and policy in causing or correcting major economic and financial disturbances (depressions, recessions, inflations, deflations and financial crises) as well as influencing economic growth. The studies could be comparative, country specific or global.

The Program Committee (Christopher M. Meissner, UC Davis (chair), together with Carola Frydman (Northwestern University), Zorina Khan (Bowdoin College) and Dave Donaldson (Stanford University) welcomes submissions on all subjects in economic history, though some preference will be given to papers that fit the theme of the conference. Papers should be submitted individually, but authors may suggest to the Committee that three particular papers fit well together in a panel. Papers should in all cases be works in progress rather than accepted or published work. Submitters should let the program committee know at the time of application if the paper they are proposing has already been submitted for publication. Individuals who presented or co-authored a paper given at the 2016 meeting are not eligible for inclusion in the 2017 program.

Papers and session proposals should be submitted online, with details to follow on the meetings website. The submission system is now open: Paper proposals should include a 3-5 page proposal and a 150 –word abstract suitable for publication in the Journal of Economic History. Papers should be submitted by January 31, 2017 to ensure consideration. Please note that at least one of the authors needs to be a member of EHA.
