EABH Events: Annual Meeting and Archival Workshop

The European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) will hold its annual meeting on April 29, 2016, in Vienna, Austria, in cooperation with the Oesterreichische Nationalbank. The theme of the meeting is "Financial Interconnections in History: Did financial globalisation increase or decrease stability?" According to the meeting announcement,
In the 1980s and 1990s a new wave of technologies and mathematical modelling transformed the nature and performance of international capital markets, prompting new entrants, new structures and new markets. In turn, these innovations generated fresh challenges for prudential supervision, risk assessment and regulation that persisted through the ensuing 30 years. This conference will explore these themes from a longer term perspective as well as drawing on the experience and testimony of participants in the transformation of markets in the 1980s and 1990s.
The program is now available on the EABH website.
      On the afternoon preceding the meeting, April 28, the EABH will hold a training Workshop on the theme "Archives Online: It's all about choices." As the website states, "The workshop . . . aims to support archivists and records managers in strategically planning and implementing the online presentation of their institutions’ archives." A practical lab session will close the workshop.
     The training workshop is free for EABH members and carries a minimal charge for non-members. Those interested may register for both the workshop and the annual meeting, or for either event individually. Please see the EABH event website for more details.
