History of Economics
(ECHE 2006)

20-21 October 2006

Economics and Place

It is common to refer to regional or national traditions in the history of economics. Whether one speaks of the Austrian school, the Chicago school, the fight between the two Cambridges, or Swedish economics, there is an implied suggestion that specific locations play a significant role in the making of economic discourse. While its effects and manifestations are widely acknowledged and often taken for granted, the process itself is rarely investigated.

The purpose of this conference will be to explore the geographies of economics throughout time. Potential areas that might be examined include, but are by no means limited to, the following:

  • How have local, regional and national spaces shaped the theoretical work of economics?
  • How does economic science acquire universality? And how does globalization of knowledge influence the making of economics at the local, regional and national levels?
  • What difference does it make for economic science to be produced in different spatial settings such as, for example, a laboratory, university office, salon, research center, classroom, library or at home?
  • How important are the various spaces in the reception (acceptance or rejection) of ideas and more generally in the diffusion of knowledge?
  • How is scientific endeavor influenced by geographical displacement?
