Economic History

New Economic Thinking and Latin American Economic History

The Economic History working group invites scholars to submit their research on alternative perspectives and different approaches to the study of Latin American economic history.

The aim of these panels is to actively share and embrace different perspectives and schools of economic thought, in order to provide fertile ground for the future study of Latin American economic history using diverse perspectives, frameworks, and methodologies. To this end, the Economic History working group encourages the submission of papers that span various research frameworks and methodologies. Papers inspired by institutional, feminist, and/or Marxian approaches are especially welcome, as are papers from other alternative frameworks. We want to engage a range of scholars from different backgrounds in a discussion of how economic history can be advanced through the lenses of different frameworks, both qualitative and quantitative. In this spirit we also welcome papers on the historiography of Latin American economic history, as well as interdisciplinary research, connecting with related fields such as political and legal history.
