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 theme to the
workshop, and submissions are encouraged from any sub-field of economic and
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
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 strongly
encouraged to participate on both days (not just on the day they present).
There will be no registration fee for this workshop. The organisers will offer
lunch on Thursday and Friday, a workshop dinner on Thursday evening, as well as
refreshments during the workshop. The participants must cover the costs of hotel
and travel themselves.
