Commerce, Corporations and the Law

The History Project, in cooperation with the History Department at Princeton University and the Joint Center for History and Economics, will hold its second conference on 27-28 September 2013 at Dickinson Hall, Princeton University. The conference will be concerned with cross-cultural trade, firms, and legal systems around the world. The History Project is supported by the Institute for New Economic Thinking, with the object of encouraging a new generation of historians of the economy and economic life. The Organizing Committee welcomes proposals for papers from advanced undergraduates, graduate students and recent PhD recipients. The deadline for submissions of proposals is March 1, 2013.

The conference will be able to contribute to travel and accommodation costs, and a small number of research grants will be available through the History Project; see http://www.histproj.org/grants.html
