For more information, see http://www.iisg.nl/research/currency.html Wages and Currency: Global and Historical Comparisons Symposium in Amsterdam/Leiden, 24-25 May 2002 Convenors: International Institute of Social History (IISH), Amsterdam and National Collection of Coins and Medals (KPK: Koninklijk Penningkabinet), Leiden (in cooperation with 'Labour 1500-2000') Money in the form of coins can be used for many purposes. The literature tends to concentrate on their use in trade. But there are good reasons to assume that coins have been essential for wage payments for thousands of years. On the basis of an exploratory study into the situation in the Netherlands between 1200 and 2000 (see article) the workshop wants to bring together specialists from all parts of the world to examine on the basis of concrete case studies to what extent the arguments set out here and elaborated for the Netherlands cut any ice, and above all whether a refined set of hypotheses can be developed from this work. More information: - Call for papers (MS Word-document, 37 Kb) - Accepted Paper Proposals, Abstracts - 'Wage payments and currency circulation in the Netherlands 1200-2000'; Article by Prof Dr Jan Lucassen that deals with the situation in the Netherlands from the medieval period onwards (as yet unpublished, MS Word-document, 146 Kb) - Schemes going with the article (in Dutch, PDF-document, 70 Kb) Those who wish to attend can now register by sending an e-mail to Monique Kruithof (firstname.lastname@example.org) and remitting the conference fee.
