Abstract

Since its formal establishment in 1996, the European Society for the History of Economic Thought has organised 23 annual conferences. Participation data gathered from various sources reveals 1777 unique participants. In order to study their regular engagement with ESHET, we focus only on a group of 476 scholars who attended at least three conferences. We collect available biographic data on this smaller group of regular attendees and analyse their educational background, career trajectories, geographical and gender representation. With this prosopography we depict the evolving structure of the history of economic thought community in Europe and beyond.

Keywords: Prosopography, History of Economic Thought, ESHET
