Here is the list of preapproved sessions of the Second Latin American Economic History Congress (CLADHE-II), to be held in Mexico City on February 3-5, 2010. To submit a paper to any of the sessions, you have to go here.
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.
Unfortunately, I am now conducting research in Morocco and allthough it leaves me a lot of time to read, I don’t have a very reliable access to the internet, so I may be unable to post much on the blog for the coming month.
I’d like to grab this occasion for a quick thank-you-note to all the readers of the blog! Today we’ve reached 10,000 viewers and we’re approaching the 100th post. Although these are admitedly modest benchmarks, it really is heartwarming.
I’d also like to thank Richard for his precious contributions, which create lively bridges between history and contemporary issues. Finally, I’d like to thank Leonardo Monasterio who has posted a nice comment about the EHB on his blog and allowed us to enjoy our busiest day ever (by far).
Thank you all
Two seminars in Paris from the IDES with my dear old D. Margairaz (Paris 1) and P. Minard (Paris 8).
I’d like to place this blog under the special protection of Saint Catherine of Alexandria patron saint of librairies ;) Rich. I’m not Christian but I find it a delightful tradition and it is only fitting for a blog devoted to history. Besides, one is never too careful.
But then again why Saint Catherine? Here are 15 reasons:
Great day today, my estimate colleague rlmarino is joining me to write of the blog.
Lets be clear right now, the man is brilliant, I was lucky enough to sit in class with him, he is one of a kind, the term idiosyncratic was invented for him (and chances are: by him).
I am sure every one will also be please that, unlike me, he is able to write in English. I no nobody half as good to sum up an entire debate in one netly wrapped sentence.
Welcome aboard mate.

Well 2008 was exciting and will remain an important year for economic historians of the future.
First of all a huge thanks to all the viewers of 2008.
Now a few good resolutions for the year:
- Finding new contributors to enrich the blog with new perspectives.
- Getting interviews with professors so as to feel the pulse of the most recent research
- Going to more conferences
- Posting notes on books and not only articles
- And of course posting way more regularly.
Ok, enough of it, lets go to the pub now to celebrate.
