CfP: Third Latin American Summer School in the History of Economics,

The Faculty of Economics of UNAM, YSI and ALAHPE invite you to:

The third edition of the History of Economics Summer School in Latin America (HESSLA) to be held at the Faculty of Economics of the UNAM in Mexico City, February 13-16, 2019. This event follows the editions held in Bogotá in 2015 and Ouro Preto in 2017.

The topic of the school is History of Economic Thinking in and from Latin America.

The Summer School will once again bring together graduate students and young researchers selected to present their research on topics related to the history of economic thought, economic history, and the methodology of economics. Relevant specialists in the study of the history of economic thought in Latin America will be invited.

The Summer School will have sessions dedicated to the presentation of ongoing research by advanced master students, doctoral students and early-career researchers, which will be commented on by invited senior scholars. These sessions will provide a space for in-depth discussion. In addition, some sessions will be thematic workshops. At the end of each day, there will be room for informal conversations about ongoing research projects and broader intellectual and professional concerns.

Candidates wishing to participate in the 3rd HESSLA should submit their proposals (in English, Portuguese or Spanish) on a topic related to the theme of the event, with a summary of up to 400 words no later than January 11, 2019, using the following form:

The Scientific Committee will select 20 proposals from the applications received. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by January 25 and must submit the full version of their contribution by February 2 at the latest.

The organization will have partial and complete grants for selected participants from Latin America (PhD obtained no earlier than 2016 or yet to be obtained). Those interested in applying for these grants should send the full version of their papers no later than January 11 to [email protected].

The Summer School seeks to provide a vehicle for strengthening academic work in Latin America. However, there are no restrictions regarding the place of origin of the participants: we welcome and encourage proposals from young scholars from around the world.
