25TH HETSA Conference
The History of Economic Thought Society of Australia will celebrate its 25th jubilee conference in Melbourne in July, 2012. Please note the conference will take place from Thursday, 5th July till Saturday, 8th July in the historic Royal Society of Victoria Building, 1-9 Victoria Street, Melbourne. (It’s just a stone throw from where this year's conference, hosted by RMIT University, took place). For those interested the 41ST Australian Conference of Economists starts on the 9TH July at Victoria University.
There are currently two Keynote speakers for our conference. Susan Howson from the University of Toronto, and a member of the editorial board of the History of Economics Review, will give a keynote address on the writing of her magnificent biography on Lionel Robbins which has just been published. Deirdre McCloskey, distinguished professor of economics at the University of Illinois in Chicago, will speak on ‘How ideology changed 1600-1848 and why it mattered’. Next year’s conference will have a session on the education of Australian economists and Max Corden, Joe Isaac and another honoured guest will feature here.
The theme of this year’s conference will be ‘The Future of the History of Economic Thought’. Consequently we hope to have as many young Australian-based HET scholars to give papers on their research topics. In that regard please avail your research students of this opportunity and the concessional registration price.
