Call for papers for a session titled: Diaspora Entrepreneurial networks, C.1000 to 2000
IEHA Congress, Buenos Aires 2002)

Organizers: Frank Broeze (Autralia);Ioanna Pepelasis Minoglou (Greece),Gelina Harlaftis (Greece); William Gervase Clarence-Smith (UK).

During the last millennium a succession of regional and long-distance trading networks, at first in Asia and Europe but later also stretching
across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, lay at the heart of the gradual integration of the world into one global system. The study of such networks,
which often took the form of ethnic diasporas, is becoming a vibrant field for economic, maritime and social historians. The purpose of this session is
to take stock of the current state of the art and to lay the foundations for new directions in the study of diaspora entrepreneurial networks by
soliciting a broad range of case studies from varying regions and periods. Those interested in presenting a paper at the session should submit a
250-400 word abstract by June 15 2000 to Ioanna Minoglou at the following e-mail address:
Notification regarding the acceptance of the paper will be given by July 15 2000. A summary of the accepted papers will be required by January 2001.
A preconference meeting will be held in Corfu in the summer of 2001.
