EHS Preliminary Program Available, Registration Open

The Economic History Society will hold its annual meeting on March 27-29, 2015, at the University of Wolverhampton Telford Campus, UK. The preliminary conference program has been posted on the conference website. The meeting begins with over a dozen "new researcher sessions" on Friday, followed by a plenary address by Barrie Trinder: "Reflections on the Industrial Revolution in Shropshire." After full sessions on Saturday and part of Sunday, the conference concludes with the Tawney Lecture, presented this year by Martin Daunton (University of Cambridge): "Contesting Reconstruction: Remaking the Global Economic Order after 1945."
    The on-line registration site is now operative, with an early bird discount that expires February 4.
    Some papers are available on-line, and will be linked from the program as they are posted.
