The History of Economic Thought Society of Australia will hold its 28th conference in Sydney, at Alphacrucis College in Parramatta, 12-14 July 2015.
The keynote speaker for our conference will be Margaret Schabas http://philosophy.ubc.ca/persons/margaret-schabas/ from University of British Columbia. She will participate in our panel on the future of the history of economics in Australia and give a keynote address on her recent work on the economics of David Hume. A number of other distinguished local and international speakers have already been secured, including Deirdre McCloskey http://www.deirdremccloskey.com/ and the new editor of JHET Stephen Meardon http://www.bowdoin.edu/faculty/s/smeardon/.
Further details are available on the conference website http://acu.edu.au/conferences/hetsa/
Call for Papers
Submission of sessions comprising three papers, or a single paper to be allocated to a session by the organiser, are welcome. The history of economics will be interpreted broadly, and historical papers on both mainstream and heterodox economics are welcome. Early submission of papers is encouraged and submissions of abstracts and/or full papers may be made at any time until May 2014. Submissions will be refereed on a rolling basis, with a view to decisions on papers as soon as possible after submission. Full papers have a greater probability of being accepted, especially from less established scholars. We do not generally have discussants, finding that open question time leads to more vigorous and fruitful exchanges.
This year we hope to have more scholars from related disciplines such as the history and philosophy of science, business history, sociology, and the history of ideas presenting papers.
Submissions from younger scholars and women are particularly welcome.
Please email submissions to
Full registration $300.
Scholars from disciplines other than economics $200

The conference dinner is in addition to this, approximately $100 including drinks.
Day registration is available for two thirds of these rates.
A 10% discount on these rates is available for registration received before 1 May 2015.
