Highlights

CFP: KNOWLEDGE DIFFUSION AND THE EMERGENCE OF MODERN ECONOMIC GROWTH

There is an increasing attention in the literature on the role of useful knowledge in fostering innovation in the initial phases of the industrial revolution. Understanding how, in historical perspective, useful knowledge was elaborated, transmitted and successively adopted would add an important piece to explain how economies transitioned to a path of modern economic growth. In this context, the Rivista di Storia Economica will host a special issue dedicated to the study of causes and consequences of knowledge diffusion in eighteenth and nineteenth century Europe. However, submissions of articles on other time periods or continents are also welcome.

Call for papers: Literacy and Development

To celebrate the anniversary of Cipolla’s Literacy and Development in the West (1969), the University of Rome Tor Vergata organized a multidisciplinary workshop with the collaboration of the Orebro University and the University of Siena. The participants (both historians and economists) discussed themes mostly concerning the Italian case and particularly related to the enormous amount of regional differences characterizing the diffusion of the early primary school system since the late 18th century.
