This is an ESRC research seminar.

Seminar details

This is the first in a series of three seminars that are being run across the UK over the next two years.

Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) meetings are aimed at researchers, particularly early-career researchers, in any field of economic history.

The main aim of this first meeting is to gather researchers in a friendly and collegial environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers. For this meeting we particularly encourage papers on financial institutions, financial crises and economic growth, but submissions from scholars working in other areas are also welcome.

Alan Taylor, John Turner and Joachim Voth will deliver keynote presentations.

Some funding will be available for travel and accommodation for presenters, with graduate students taking priority.
