Entrepreneurship, knowledge and employment

ESHET invites young scholars -- persons currently enrolled in a PhD, or who have been awarded a PhD no more than two years prior to the date of the relevant ESHET conference (and regardless of age) -- to submit their work to the Young Scholars Seminar to be held on the occasion of the ESHET Conference.

Up to six submissions will be selected: ESHET will cover travel expenses up to €300, accommodation costs up to €80/night for three nights, and the registration fee including the conference dinner. The authors of the selected papers will have 20 minutes each to present the paper, and a senior scholar will discuss it. Papers may be on any topic relevant to the history of economics, and are not restricted to the conference theme.

ESHET encourages young scholars to participate in the conference. A one-year ESHET membership is offered to all young scholars who submit a paper. Papers that have not been selected will be considered for presentation at other ESHET 2018 conference sessions.

Candidates should e-mail a paper no longer than 9000 words to Professors ANNALISA ROSSELLI (annalisa.rosselli@uniroma2.it) and RICHARD STURN (richard.sturn@uni-graz.at) by 15 Feb 2018.
Please include documentation of your (and your co-authors) position vis à vis your PhD, and indicate in the Subject of your e-mail: for Young Scholar Seminar.

NB: Papers co-authored by Ph.D. supervisors or other senior researchers are not eligible.

Decisions can be expected by 6 April 2018.
