September 9-11, 2011
Description:
Economic History Association 2011 Annual Meeting
Location:
Boston, Massachusetts
Subject:
If the global economic and financial crisis has a silver lining, it is that recent events have heightened awareness among policy makers and the general public of the importance of economic history. Crises ? economic, financial, social, demographic, environmental, and political, to name only a few ? are a hardly perennial. An understanding of their history is essential to begin to understand what if anything is distinctive about the recent experience. The history of crises continues to be studied from a number of perspectives: in terms of their causes and their consequences, in terms of their changing incidence, in terms of their short-term impact and their longer-term implications for the development of economies and societies. This conference seeks to bring together scholars engaged in research on these various dimensions of crises and their implications.
