The main aim of the Sound Workshop is to gather young researchers in a friendly and non-imposing environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers and leading economic historians. Another aim of the workshop is to demonstrate the breadth of (especially Nordic) Economic History as an academic discipline, so there is no the me to the workshop, and submissions are encouraged from any sub-field of economic and social history.
Nordic scholars and scholars based in a Nordic country will be given preference, but others are warmly welcome to apply. The workshop organizers particularly encourage presentations by PhD students and post-docs. PhD students and post-docs are also encouraged to participate even if they do not wish to present paper.
The Sound Workshop organisers strive to accommodate as many speakers as possible. Depending on the number of participants, accepted papers will receive up to 25 minutes each (15 minutes for presentation and 5-10 minutes for discussion). The workshop is a two-day event, and accepted speakers are expected to participate on both days (not just on the day they present).
There will be no registration fee for this meeting. The organisers will offer lunch on Thursday and Friday, as well as refreshments during the workshop. The participants must cover the costs of hotel and travel themselves.
Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV to Laura Ekholm () and Sakari Saaritsa () no later than September 5, 2016. Notification of acceptance will be given by September 19, 2016.
