22 - 23 June 2007

ESF Network "Globalizing Europe" Workshop: "The Economic Geography of Europe, 1900-2000", 22-23 June 2007 Universidad Carlos III, Madrid (in cooperation with the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, The University of Warwick) How did the economic geography of Europe evolve over time? How did the centres of population and economic activity shift during the 20th century? What are the patterns of regional specialisation and localisation between 1900 and 2000 and what factors explain these changes? And how did this changing economic geography feedback into economic developments? This two day workshop aims at bringing together scholars interested in European economic geography to promote research in his thriving field of empirical economics. The focus lies on papers that present new data and discuss methodological aspects to the analysis of economic geography. We especially invite papers that deal with changing patterns of employment in agriculture, manufacturing and services at an intra-national level and deal with changes in regional wages and prices in these sectors. We aim at all European regions but especially invite scholars that work on South-Eastern Europe and Scandinavian Countries to send in their papers. We expect to provide travel funding, lunches, and accommodation, supported by the ESF GlobalEuroNet initiative. The number of scholars who can participate is limited. Priority is given to participants from countries which financially support the ESF Programme (Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and Turkey). However, scholars from other countries are most welcome as well and can also be financially supported to some extent. Nicholas Crafts will give a keynote lecture. The organizing committee consists of Joan Ramon Roses and Nikolaus Wolf. Papers or abstracts should be sent to nikolaus.wolf@warwick.ac.uk no later than 28th February 2007. All submissions will be acknowledged. Notices of acceptance will be sent to corresponding authors by March 31st 2007.
