        Subject: CFP - The Computerization of Economics: Computers, Programming, and the Internet in the History of Economics

Dear colleagues,

Please find below information on a call for papers 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.

Read the full call here:

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
