EHESS: The Organizer of the Congress

Paris has been selected by the IEHA for organizing the 2021 WEHC. The bid was submitted by the EHESS and it had received the full support of the Association française d’histoire économique (AFHE). EHESS has embraced the heritage of promoting the ongoing and constructive dialog between economists, economic historians, and social sciences, in the wake of the Annales and Fernand Braudel. EHESS has fostered, along with AFHE, collaborations to stimulate the research in economic history conducted by universities, whether in Paris or across France, by high-profile higher education institutions, such as Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris-Saclay, Sciences Po Paris and Mines Paris-Tech, as well as by co-sponsoring institutions based on scientific coopera­tion, such as Paris School of Economics-PSE and Toulouse School of Economics-TSE. Thus, with the 2021 WEHC, the EHESS aims at highlighting the research in both economic history and social sciences as they are being carried out in France.

Campus Condorcet

The attractivity of the Congress will be enhanced by EHESS active involvement into the Campus Cordorcet (2019). It is meant to become an outstanding site where humanities and social sciences will flourish and which will strengthen EHESS posi­tion in the academic world along with that of its 10 co-founding institutions, namely INED, CNRS, and other universities, thanks also to the proximity to Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Paris Nord. The 2021 WEHC is to be a major event that will be the occasion to shed light on this newly-founded City of Humanities and Social Sciences meant to grow as a prominent place where research will be conducted, both in France and on a global scale. Campus Condorcet is located near one of the Paris airports (Roissy) and benefits from dense regional public transport links, it will include a major documentary resources center, a conference venue, halls of residence for students and visiting researchers, among many other facilities. The environment of the Campus Condorcet is highly attractive (National Archives, City of Sciences and Industry, Air and Space Museum, City of Cinema). The City of Sciences and Industry (Universcience) will host a major exhibition on “Industrial Revolutions” (Spring–Summer 2021) in which the EHESS is the leading scientific partner.
