The Department of Economic history of Uppsala University, the Swedish Economic History Association and the Scandinavian Economic History Society hereby extends an invitation to the joint thirteenth biannual Swedish Economic History Meeting and the first annual Conference of the Scandinavian Society for Economic and Social History.

The Swedish Economic History Meeting is established as an important forum for collaboration and dialogue amongst economic historians in Sweden and increasingly for colleagues from other Scandinavian countries and beyond. It is widely attended by PhD candidates as well as established researchers. This time the meeting is jointly organized as an All-Nordic conference, and we have reason to expect broad international participation. We hope that the conference series now begun now will evolve into a natural meeting point for practitioners of Economic History throughout Scandinavia.

The conference mainly consists of parallel working panels composed around proposals from contributors and prospective attendants from all over Scandinavia. A wide range of subject matters will be discussed. There will also be keynote presentations and special opportunities for doctoral students to present their thesis projects. Moreover, there will be administrative meetings for Heads of Departments and Director of studies, and for the national and Scandinavian Economic history associations.

The website of the conference is hereby opened. It will be continously updated.

The preliminary program is available here (updated 2019-04-10). This program will be subject of revision.

The Call for individual papers is open. Individual paper proposals for existing panels will be prioritized, but any proposals dealing with economic history (broadly understood) are welcome.  

Paper proposals should include:


  • the title of the paper
  • contact details for the author/speaker
  • a 200-word paper abstract
  • a specification of the language of the presentation (English/Scandinavian).
  • If applicable, an indication of which panel(s) in the preliminary program the paper is directed to.
  • An indication of whether you wish to be considered for the Scandinavian Economic History Review fast track. More details about this option here.


Paper proposals should be submitted to ehm@ekhist.uu.se no later than 31 May 2019. Notification of acceptance will be given by 30 June 2019. At this point the finalized program will be published.

Complete papers should be submitted (date TBA) for pre-circulation between 1 - 30 September.

Thanks to the generous support from Jan Wallander’s and Tom Hedelius’ foundation and the Tore Browaldh foundation, the registration fee until 30 June is only 1000 SEK (100 Euro), and 500 SEK (50 Euro) for PhD-students.
