We invite all researchers with an interest in historical political economy to submit papers for a conference at New York University Abu Dhabi on 15-17 March 2019. The conference aims to bring together scholars that use historical data to answer research questions in political economy, broadly defined. The emphasis will be on issues of interdisciplinary concern, including the causes and consequences of institutional development, the formation of state capacity, historical conflict and the legacies of colonialism. We anticipate a collection of papers that cross subfields and
methods, but share an interest in rigorous and cutting edge research. Submission details are provided below.

The conference will take place at New York University's newly established Abu Dhabi campus. Accommodation during the conference will be provided and there is no registration fee. Some assistance with travel expenses will be available and will be allocated on the basis of need: if you require assistance with funding to be able to attend, please make a note of this in the submission form. We would be grateful if participants are able to support any costs themselves, as we will then have a larger budget to
support junior scholars.


The deadline for submissions is 7 January 2019. Submissions should include a full draft of a paper.

To submit a paper, please BOTH:

Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by 20 January 2019. The registration deadline for presenters will be 14 February 2019.
