Since 1996 the bi-annual Swedish Economic History meeting, arranged by the Swedish Economic History Association has provided an arena for economic historians in Sweden and neighbouring countries, offering a comprehensive overview of ongoing research. We are pleased to extend the reach of the meeting through collaboration with the 1st meeting of the Scandinavian Society for Economic and Social History.
The Scandinavian Society for Economic and Social History is an umbrella organization of the national Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish associations. It has published the Scandinavian Economic History Review (SEHR) since 1953. The journal publishes articles and reviews in the fields of economic, business and social history with a particular, but not exclusive, interest in Scandinavia. The journal also publishes contributions from related fields and articles dealing with theoretical and methodological issues. The editors aim to reflect contemporary research, thinking and debate in these fields, within Scandinavia and throughout the world. The journal thus comprises a broad variety of aspects and approaches to economic and social history, ranging from macroeconomic history to business history, from quantitative to qualitative studies.
