Welcome to HES

Since its formal establishment in 1974, the History of Economics Society has committed itself to encouraging interest, fostering scholarship, and promoting discussion among scholars and professionals in the field of the history of economics. The Society is an international organization that publishes the Journal of the History of Economic Thought in conjunction with Cambridge University Press, sponsors an online collection of working papers under the name of The ERN History of Economics Journal, supports with other Societies the SHOE email list hosted by York University, provides grants as part of the Samuels Young Scholars Program, and is a contributing partner to the Summer Institute for the Preservation of the History of Economics.

 

ERN History of Economics Journal in association with the SSRN Economics Research Network

ERN History of Economics Journal promotes communication among scholars interested in all aspects of the history of economic thought. Work related to all periods and to any schools of economic thought are welcome, as is work that situates economics in wider intellectual and cultural contexts or relates it to other disciplines. Work related to the history of closely cognate disciplines (e.g., statistics with economic applications or economic sociology) is also accepted. Essentially, any work that touches the history of economics as a discipline or that would be of interest to scholars working in such an area is encouraged. Kevin D. Hoover and Steven G. Medema are ERN History of Economics Journal editors.
