YSI – Economic History Graduate Webinars

Dear all,

In this period of social distancing we want to harness the power of YSI virtual channels to strengthen our community by sharing our work, ideas and thoughts.

We’re launching a virtual graduate seminar in Economic History ! 60 minute online talks with discussion, free to everyone to sign up and participate.

It will be a good way for economic history graduate students to stay in touch and make everybody feel more energized and motivated. This would also be the occasion to get feedback on your ongoing quarantine work. It also aims to make up for all the cancelled conferences and seminars where we would have tested our research.

The seminars will be held on Zoom and last 60 minutes:

45 minutes of presentation
15 minutes of Q&A

Seminars will be taking place bi-weekly.

Papers on any aspect of economic history are welcome, in any particular time period of geographic area, that involve quantitative or qualitative approaches. Priority will be given to graduate students going on the market in 2021. You do not need to be registered with YSI to apply but we encourage all young scholars to join the community.

To present please send as soon as possible an abstract (up to 500 words) to: [email protected]

Deadline for proposals is April 30th. The first seminar will take place on Wednesday April 29th at 4pm (GMT+1) and will be held bi-weekly from April to June.

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

See you online!
