We welcome contributions in all the fields of the subject, from economic historians as well as other researchers, in the Scandinavian languages or in English. Please note that although contributions on Nordic economic, social and business history are particularly encouraged, all topics are welcome.
Both panel proposals and individual paper proposals are invited. Panel Proposals should include
• the title of the panel,
• contact details for the panel organiser
• a 200-word panel abstract
• specification of the language of the proceedings (English/Scandinavian).
• the names and affiliations of at least two participating speakers, and the preliminary titles of their planned papers.

Panel proposals should be submitted to no later than 18 January 2021

Acceptance of panel proposals will be announced by email and on the upcoming web site of the Swedish Economic History Association (SEHF), by 1 February at the latest. Accepted panels will form the basis of the program.

The organizing committee strongly recommends that panels are made up of speakers from different universities/colleges and if possible different countries. The committee will prioritise such proposals when finalizing the program.

Individual paper proposals are also welcomed. Once the preliminary panel program is announced 1 February paper proposals can, when applicable, indicate which panel the proposer wishes to be included in. Such papers have to be accepted by the panel organizer(s). Individual papers not directed to specific accepted panels (or proposals rejected by such panels) will be arranged into fitting panels by the organizers.

The Scandinavian Economic History Review is offering the possibility for participants at the conference to submit their papers for fast track consideration for publication. All contributions should be based on original research and will be subject to the normal peer-review process. Please remember to note that you are submitting for the fast track when you apply for the conference. Interested authors will be required to submit a full version through the SEHR online submission platform (https://www.tandfonline.com/loi/sehr20) two weeks before the conference at the latest. The papers will be subject to an initial review by the SEHR editors. Accepted papers will be presented at separate “fast track sessions”, where an SEHR editor will be present and provide feedback on your work. The authors of the very best submissions will be invited to revise their papers based on these comments within three weeks, and the resubmissions will then be subject to the usual peer review process, with an initial decision made by the end of January 2022. Please note, that the fast track does not in any way preclude other papers from being submitted to the Review.
Individual paper proposals should include

• the title of the paper,
• contact details for the author/speaker
• a 200-word paper abstract
• specification of the language of the proceedings (English/Scandinavian).
• If applicable indication of which accepted the panel the paper is directed to.
• An indication of whether you wish to be considered for the Scandinavian Economic History Review fast track.
Individual paper proposals should be submitted to no later than 31 May 2021. Notification of acceptance will be given by 30 June 2021. Information of registration and fees for participation and the provisional program will be announced at the beginning of February 2021.
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 happy to extend the reach of the meeting through collaboration with the 2nd 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, https://www.tandfonline.com/loi/sehr20) 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.
