On the Second Latin American Economic History Congress

May 14, 2009
Second Latin American Economic History Congress (Mexico City, February 3-5, 2010)

Second Latin American Economic History Congress (Mexico City, February 3-5, 2010)

Well. The Economic History Blog has an exclusive. This post has the text I’ve written to announce an academic event in February 2010. The entry might sound too institutional, but I thought it would be nice if I shared it with you all before it appears published in economic history associations websites and e-mail lists.

The scale of the event is huge. It will be a great opportunity for the world to see the topics and the quality of on-going Latin American economic history research.

So, here it is. And as soon as I can confirm the participation of the key speaker (one of the economic historians I respect and like the most), the Economic History Blog readers will be the first to know it.

This Week in Economic History (May 11th-17th)

May 10, 2009

I work as an assistant to Dr. Luis Jáuregui, president of the Mexican Economic History Association (AMHE). One of my duties is to search and edit new contents for the Association’s webpage. Among other things, the Association offers a weekly agenda and a list of future events in economic history.

When I first began looking for and organizing information on economic history events of the region and the world, I faced several problems. Even though EH.net seemed like the obvious place to go, the site lacks information on seminars and conferences smaller than major congresses or anual meetings. For that thing one has to search in the webpages of different universities. The French Economic History Association has a very good calendar; however, it is obviously skewed with the many events related to economic history in France. E-mail lists such as the one from the Societies for the History of Economics,  H-World and H-Business also have events from which otherwise one would probably never know. The economic history associations of Latin America use to be very “local” in terms of the events they announce in their webpages.Thus one has to search in several sources what could probably be updated in a central database.
