Workshop: FRESH Meets in Belfast in June

On June 23, 2017, Queen's University Centre for Economic History, Queen's University Belfast, will host a Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) meeting. FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in any field of economic and social history and build on the concept that scholars present their ongoing research at an early stage--normally before it becomes available as a working paper, and certainly before it is published 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. The broad theme of the Belfast meeting is “Institutions, Capitalism and Economic History.” The keynote speaker will be Avner Offer, Chichele Professor Emeritus of Economic History at the University of Oxford.
