We are very pleased to announce a Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) meeting will take place in Oxford, on Tuesday 14 June 2019.
The Faculty of History of the University of Oxford together with the HERA project Uses of the Past in International Relations (UPIER) invite graduate students and postdoctoral fellows of economic and business history to the FRESH-UPIER meeting that takes place on 14 June, 2019 at St. Hilda`s College, University of Oxford.
The workshop aims to bring together a small number of talented Early Career Researchers (approximately 9) to present and discuss their research at an advanced stage.
We welcome research in any field of financial history, including, but not limited to; banking history, financial markets, financial crises, sovereign finance and capital flows. Papers helping to understand how policymakers and market actors use the past in shaping their decisions and performing economic activity are particularly welcomed.
Priority will be given to graduate students, although applications from postdoctoral fellows are also welcomed.
