Dear colleagues,

Please find below information on a call for paper that may be of interest.

The Computerization of Economics: Computers, Programming, and the Internet in the History of Economics
Edited by Marcel Boumans (Utrecht University), Cléo Chassonnery-Zaïgouche (University of Cambridge, CRASSH), Pierrick Dechaux (REhPERE), & Francesco Sergi (Université Paris Est Créteil, LIPHA)

The special issue aims at gathering contributions investigating the “computerization” of economics: that is, the historical and social processes that have made computers and software a crucial, distinctive, and necessary element of economists’ practices. We are interested in computerization as a process actively shaping (and being shaped by) economics’ theoretical frameworks, empirical techniques, and economists’ distinctive research practices.

The call is open to historians of economics and historians of sciences and technologies. We also welcome reminiscences from economists or computer scientists willing to share a retrospective and reflexive insight into the evolution, along their career, of their practices.

Deadline for abstract is the 1st of May 2021, full paper submission is expected by February 15th, 2022. During late Spring 2022, a workshop will be organized in Paris, where authors will be invited to present and discuss their papers. This event will depend on financial constraints and on the Covid-19 situation.

For further information, please contact the editors of the special issue or send a message to oeconomia at openedition.org<mailto:oeconomia at openedition.org>.
