The International Comparative History of Occupational Structure - (INCHOS) 2009

This conference, which has been organised by Leigh Shaw-Taylor and Osamu Saito brings together individuals and research teams working on the history of occupational structure. The aim is two-fold. Firstly, to present papers which provide case studies of the changing occupational structure of individual countries over the period of industrialisation. These papers will be first drafts of chapters for an edited volume. Secondly, to allow other related work to be presented from research projects which are at an earlier stage. The intention is that all papers will use a consistent coding of occupations to ensure comparability. The system being used is the PST system developed by E.A. Wrigley.
The provisional programme is available.
