The Program in Economic History at Yale is hosting a conference entitled "Russian, Soviet, and Post-Soviet Economic History: New Frontiers" on November 1-2, 2013, at 28 Hillhouse Avenue, Tobin Lounge, Yale University. The conference is co-organized by Timothy Guinnane (Yale) and Steven Nafziger (Williams College).

The conference begins on Friday, November 1, at 2 p.m. and ends at 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 2. The conference program is available at http://www.econ.yale.edu/~egcenter/EH2013_Russian.htm. All papers will be posted online so that all attending can read them in advance. Presentations will be limited to 10 minutes, and session time will be devoted almost exclusively to discussion.

All are welcome to attend the conference and take part in the discussion. Attendees not on the program are asked to contact Steven Nafziger(steven.nafziger@williams.edu), so that organizers will know how many people to expect.
