Dear members of the H-Demog mailing list, The Centre for Global Economic History of Utrecht University would like to invite the submission of paper abstracts for an international conference on the theme of marriage patterns household formation and economic development. Focusing both on geographical scope and historical time span, we plan to run a three-day workshop, building on the GEHN tradition, running from the 7th until the 10th of October 2010. During the conference experts in the fields of history, economics, demography, sociology and anthropology will address the following three areas in particular: 1. A worldwide overview of household organization; 2. The effect of marriage patterns on economic development; 3. Theoretical insights into the functional nature of marriage patterns. We invite you to submit paper abstracts related to the theme of household formation and economic development. Participation is by invitation only. Please see the accompanying document for further information concerning the context of the conference and its aims, as well as regarding travel and accommodation expenses. If you are interested in participating please send a one page (400 words) abstract of the paper you would like to present before the 1st of February 2010 to the following address: S.G.Carmichael@uu.nl. We are looking forward to your contributions. Yours sincerely, The organisers: Sarah Carmichael, Tine de Moor and Jan Luiten van Zanden Contact: Sarah Carmichael e-mail: S.G.Carmichael@uu.nl
