The Graduate History Students’ Science Club at the Institute of History of the University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland), the Department of History of the University of Ostrava (Czech Republic) and the Department of History of the University in Banská Bystrica (Slovakia) extend an invitation to the International Interdisciplinary Science Conference “Non solum pecunia – Means of Payment throughout the Ages”, which will take place in June 8–9th 2018 in Katowice.
Since the dawn of history relations based on exchange of goods and services remain a binding agent of human societies. Various forms of payment existed long before money and still function parallelly to the monetary economy. A holistic approach to the economic, social and cultural significance of money and others means of payment is the key to understanding the past and the surrounding reality.
The organizers of the conference wish to examine means of payment since antiquity up to modern times, aiming to encompass all possible aspects of the matter at hand. Due to the interdisciplinary character of the conference we encourage participation of representatives of broadly understood social and humanistic sciences and also all those, whose research remains relevant to the topic.
The key issues of the conference:
Legal dimension of money
Money in culture

Favor, bribe, sponsoring
Means of payment as a carrier of ideology and propaganda
