Descrizione del progetto

This project is part of the growing wave of interest in women’s contribution to the history of economic thought, evident in the international literature. It is a continuation of studies and projects previously carried out by the PI and the other associated investigators, and is linked to a recent research promoted by the Associazione Italiana per la Storia del Pensiero Economico (AISPE,, which saw the participation of about 30 scholars. The overall aim of the project is to rethink the history of economic thought from the perspective of gender, by reconstructing the economic thought of as many Italian women as possible. To achieve this aim the research intends: 1) to carry out the first ever census of these figures in order to set up its own online database, to be linked to the ASEE archive, which is currently almost entirely devoted to men; 2) to bring to the fore and analyse their economic ideas, their impact on economic culture, policy, facts and theory, as well as their international links; 3) to discover traditions and recent trends in women’s thought that enable a critical rethinking of the canon of economic thought, which ignores the contribution made by women.
