Dear all,

We are launching a new edition of the YSI Economic History graduate seminar.  As in previous editions, we provide a platform for young researchers to present their ongoing work and get feedback from senior scholars. The online format has made exchanges from people from different regions and research areas possible, offering early-stage researchers an important venue.

If you are interested to attend in the webinar and receiving the program, please register using this form. We will get in touch with you as soon as we can.
