"FRESH" CFP and Schedule of Upcoming Meetings

The next meeting of FRESH (Frontier Research in Economic and Social History) will be held in Antwerp, Belgium, on October 28, 2011. The keynote speaker will be Jan Luiten van Zanden of Utrecht University, who will talk about “The North Sea Area and the Origins of ‘Modern Economic Growth,’ 1200‐1800.”
   FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in any field of economic and social history. The meetings are based on the belief that it is helpful for scholars to present their ongoing research at an early stage—normally before it is published as a working paper and certainly before publication in books or journals. The main aim of the meetings is to gather researchers in a friendly and collegial environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers.
   Prospective speakers should submit a one‐page abstract and a short CV to Jord Hanus (email: jord.hanus@ua.ac.be) no later than July 31, 2011. Notification of acceptance will be given by mid-August 2011. Please see the full call for papers for further information.
   Additional meetings for Münster in March  2012 and Pisa in April 2012 are in the planning stage. For more information about FRESH meetings and membership, please visit the FRESH website.
