History of ‘economics as culture’

Histoire de la culture et des savoirs économiques

Nous organisons la 3e journée d'étude sur le thème "Histoire de la culture et des savoirs économiques" dont vous trouverez l'appel à contribution ci-dessous le 8 avril 2011 à l'Université de Cergy-Pontoise. Si vous souhaitez présenter une communication ou simplement participer, n'hésitez pas à contacter les organisateurs à l'adresse indiquée ci-dessous.

This is to announce that we are organizing on the behalf of the H2S (History of Social Science) group the third workshop on “history of ‘economics as culture’ (Histoire de la culture et des savoirs économiques)” to be held Friday, April 8th, 2011 at the University of Cergy-Pontoise (near Paris, France). Our intention is to bring together scholars from different disciplines to discuss from an historical vantage point, the place of economics in our culture. Below are some suggestions of topics that exemplify what will be at issue:

- To consider the interactions between art, literature and economics;

- To discuss the interactions between cultural or artistic objects such as magazines, books, maps, photographs, paintings, graphs and economic thinking and to consider economic texts as cultural items and to reflect upon the consequences their physical form had on their reception;

- To consider economics as part of cultures (political, commercial, scientific, etc.) of past (including very recent past) societies; in particular, to discuss the economic representations (or culture) of specific social groups such as merchants, workers, business men, etc.

The workshop will comprise of 5 or 6 papers containing genuine unpublished research. If you have an interest in these topics, please send us a proposal or no more than 1000 words or a draft paper of what you want to present before January, 15 at the following address: historyofeconomicsasculture@gmail.com

If you are interested in the subject but are unable to send a proposal, feel free to contact us at the same address for further discussion/information. Also, last year program is available here: http://economix.u-paris10.fr/fr/activites/colloques/?id=113
