I remind you the two round tables in Paris and Madrid concerning The small change (from Antiquity to 19th c.) and The transfers of precious metals (from 16th c. to 19th c.) in May 2013. All regions in the world are concerned.
Abstract are to be sent now. Some grants for the participation are available.
All details on
Here's some more information on the round tables.
A special Round Table on “small change” (bronze/copper coins from Antiquity to 19th c.) at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, (May 13-14) in cooperation with IDHE (Institutions et dynamiques historiques de l’économie).
The idea is to analyze the importance of the small coins such as copper, bronze, billon in the development of the economy and the relations between the development of this coinage and the general economic development (including relations with banknotes, railways, minting systems, etc.) from Antiquity to 19th century.
Papers concerning all the monetary systems are welcome, from Antiquity to 19th c., from all the regions of the world, but must concern subsidiary coinage (mainly copper, bronze, tin, zinc, etc. coins). Papers focused on precious metals, on subsidiary money (cowries, salt money, paleo-moneys), or on banknotes will be refused.
This workshop will be followed by a second workshop in Madrid at the end of the same week (May 16-17). The Madrid one will be focused on the transfers of precious metal from 16th to 19th c. see Madrid workshop presentation.
Six to eight papers will be selected and all the presentation will be video recorded and available on this website.
Abstracts must be received by Dec. 31, 2012 and the definitive program will be announced on this site in January 2013.
Among the first participants: P. Baubeau, University of Paris-Nanterre; G. Depeyrot, CNRS-ENS; C. Jefferies, City University of London; Kuroda, A., University of Tokyo; A. Ögren, University of Uppsala , etc.
There is no inscription fee. Some grants are available.
The entrance is free (at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, 45 rue d’Ulm, Paris, amphithéâtre Rataud; May 13 afternoon and 14 morning), but it is better to register.
Please register or send abstracts to Georges Depeyrot.
