Workshop Objectives

This workshop brings together economists and historians on recent topics in economic history. Researchers are invited to submit both qualitative and quantitative papers. In particular, we welcome papers related to the following topics:

- History of globalization, especially international trade and capital flows

- History of agricultural economics

- History of competition policy and regulation

- History of transatlantic economics

- History of economic thought

The workshop is open both young and experienced researchers (including Ph.D. students), and professionals from business, government and non-governmental institutions.

Ph.D. students or young researchers have the opportunity to submit their paper for a special track for ‘young economic historians’. Accepted papers will be discussed by senior researchers. This will be very helpful to improve the research during later revisions of the paper.

We are happy to welcome the following internationally distinguished keynote speakers:

Prof. Dr. Kevin O’Rourke (Trinity College Dublin)
