The 8th Latin American Conference on the History of Economic Thought will be organized by the Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Administración, Universidad de la República, in Montevideo (Uruguay), between April 20 and 22, 2022.
The theme chosen for the conference is ‘Doing Research on the History of Economics from Latin America: Of Superiorities, Empires and All the Rest’. We seek to encourage scholars dedicated to the study of economic ideas in Latin America to connect the literatures on imperialism and the superiority of economists — expanding, criticizing or enriching them, and also assessing their implications for theoretical, empirical, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research. The conference thus wishes to stimulate reflection on the peculiarities of HET research carried out from Latin America. Papers that address the broad spectrum of topics associated with the history of economics will also be welcome.
The organizing committee considers several possible conference arrangements (face-to-face, virtual or a combination of both), depending on the evolution of sanitary conditions. This decision will be communicated to interested participants well in advance.
Universidad de la República is the main public university in Uruguay, and its Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Administración is the oldest and most prominent center for the training of economists in the country.
