The Seventh Asian Historical Economics Conference
The Faculty of Economics, Chulalongkorn University, in collaboration with the Asian Historical Economics Society (AHES), will organize the Seventh Asian Historical Economics Conference (AHEC 2022). The conference will be held at Chulalongkorn University on Friday-Saturday, December 9-10, 2022. AHEC 2022 will be delivered in a hybrid format, giving participants the option to join in person or online.
This two-day conference follows earlier conferences of the Asian Historical Economics Society in Venice (2008), Beijing (2010), Tokyo (2012), Istanbul (2014), Seoul (2016), and Hong Kong (2018). The conference aims to bring together researchers working on the economic history of all regions of Asia, as well as those comparing Asia with other regions of the world. This year’s keynote speaker is Professor Jean-Pascal Bassino (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France).
AHEC 2022 invites papers exploring various aspects of Asian economic history. We especially encourage participation by scholars working at institutions in Southeast Asia, as well as graduate students working on the economic history of Asia. Pending funding, the conference may be able to offset some expenses for graduate student participants and a scholar affiliated with an ASEAN institution.
