The present international colloquium-webinar is the first meeting of the program of the same name; one of its main activities will be the session that the coordinators are organizing for the International Economic History Congress in Paris in 2022 (WEHC-22). All these activities will involve some twenty European and American researchers. The scientific approach is based on different traditions of the social sciences that conceive interpersonal relations as a resource of their economic agency and emphasize the intertwining of these links with institutional mechanisms. This framework will guide the approach with which we will debate on the diversity of actors at the crossroads of credit, markets, public finance and sovereign power.
For more than two decades, numerous authors have studied and debated, from different historiographical perspectives, the relationships between public finance, the dynamics of sovereign powers and the configuration of markets. Our meetings will attempt to renew some of the classic themes of this literature by focusing on the following aspects: the relational and normative context of the actors, the medieval roots of a plurality of institutional cultures, the way social actors confronted or negotiated between alternative institutional resources and the trans-imperial articulations between the Americas and Europe.
