Call for Applications: 9th Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar for economic and social historians “Social and geographic mobilty”, 12-18 maggio 2024, Prato – Scadenza 15 novembre 2023

The Fondazione Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica “F. Datini” and the Euro-pean School for Training in Economic and Social Historical Research (ESTER) an-nounce their ninth jointly-organized Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar for economic and social historians on 12th-18th May 2024, in Prato (Italy). The topic of the seminar is:
“Social and geographic mobility”

The topic of the Datini-Ester seminar is closely related to the theme of the congress yearly organized by the “F. Datini” International Institute of Economic History and devoted in 2024 to Social Mobility in pre-industrial societies: tendencies, causes and effects (13th-18th centuries). The 2024 Datini-Ester seminar will deal with Social and geographic mobility. We particularly welcome papers on social and socio-economic mobility (both upward and downward) in different historical contexts, as well as on geographic mobility, that is migration (short- or long-distance). As is well known, across human history geographic mobility has often played a major role in shaping patterns of socio-economic mobility. Our purpose is to clarify the determinants, the
extent and the final consequences of mobility in different periods, across entire soci-eties or regarding specific social groups. Papers can cover any relevant aspect and any period from Antiquity until today.
