The Future of Economic, Business, and Social History: Free Access to SEHR Article

On May 25, 2012, the Scandinavian Society of Economic and Social History celebrated the 60th anniversary of its international journal, Scandinavian Economic History Review, with a conference on "The Future of Economic, Social and Business History."
     The editors of the journal invited three distinguished scholars in the fields of economic history, business history and social history: Stephen Broadberry (London School of Economics), Geoffrey Jones (Harvard Business School), and Marco van Leeuwen (Utrecht University) to present their personal views and ideas about the future of their respective disciplines. The three speakers were asked to publish their talks in the journal.
     The article containing the talks is now available (free access) from the journal website: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/03585522.2012.727766. The editors, Alfred Reckendrees and Jacob Weisdorf,  hope that the viewpoints expressed in the article will encourage more discussion about the future challenges in the fields of economic, business, and social history, as well as inspire the future research agenda within these fields.
