The 43rd Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) Annual Conference will be held at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Our general theme is Early Modern Origins of Growth and Business. However, proposals for presentations on any aspect of ancient to recent economic, social or business history are welcome, as are proposals for whole panels.

The keynote speaker will be Deirdre N. McCloskey, Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication, University of Illinois at Chicago. The plenary speaker is Uskali Mäki, Academy Professor and Professor of Practical Philosophy, University of Helsinki. Both have astounding merits in combining economics, history, and philosophy in their work. Furthermore, their mutual dialogue in researching philosophy and methodology of economics extends to the 1980s.
