XXXII Annual Conference of the Portuguese Economic and Social History Association (APHES) "THE CONSTRUCTION OF FORTUNE AND FAILURE: HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVES "
Fortune and failure are concepts with historical changeable meanings and cultural constructs that have been ever present in Western thought. These are old concepts whose usages change according to the different historical contexts. The actors involved in economic, social and political changes evaluate them through these (or other similar) dichotomic concepts. Thus, a reflection on the usages of these concepts in different historical contexts and in separate fields of study will provide a fruitful debate on the historian's craft and a reflection on the way in which language and historical experience relate. The 32nd APHES Conference invites the national and international scientific community to take part in this debate, submitting thematic panels or individual papers. While this is the theme of the Conference, proposals for panels and papers on other topics in the fields of economic history and social history are accepted.
