About AHEC 2022

The Seventh Asian Historical Economics Conference (AHEC 2022) will be hosted by the Faculty of Economics, Chulalongkorn University, in collaboration with the Asian Historical Economics Society (AHES). The conference will be held at Chulalongkorn University on Friday-Saturday, December 9-10, 2022. This two-day conference follows earlier conferences of the Asian Historical Economics Society in Venice (2008), Beijing (2010), Tokyo (2012), Istanbul (2014), Seoul (2016), and Hong Kong (2018).

AHEC 2022 aims to bring together researchers working on the economic history of all regions of Asia, as well as those comparing Asia with other regions of the world. AHEC participants are generally PhD holders and students currently enrolled in graduate programs. We especially encourage participation by scholars working at institutions in Southeast Asia, as well as graduate students working on the economic history of Asia. Partial funding for graduate students may be available.

AHEC 2022 will be delivered in a hybrid format, giving participants the option to join in person or online.
