Call for Posters
The International Economic History Association (IEHA) will hold its fifteenth World Economic History Congress in Utrecht, the Netherlands, from 3 to 7 August 2009. The congress includes a poster session for PhD-students and junior postdoc researchers.
The poster session offers junior researchers a great opportunity to present ongoing research to an international audience. Posters combine text and graphics in order to communicate information and ideas. The informal and interactive setting of the poster session makes it easy to engage people in conversation and invite feedback.
From the applications a jury consisting of members of the Executive Committee will select around thirty posters. These will be on display for two to three days in the hall where the coffee breaks are held, which will give the posters maximum exposure. The poster session itself will be divided in two parts, taking place on Monday in the late morning and on Thursday in the late afternoon. On each occasion fifteen participants will be expected to be with their posters for brief presentations, questions and discussion. The jury will assess the posters and give an award to the best poster.
Are you interested in participating in the poster session? Then submit a proposal containing the following elements:
Submissions should be sent by email to: before 1 April 2009.
