CFP: FRESH London 2018

On June 14, 2018, the Department of Economics, Royal Holloway, and the Department of Economic History, London School of Economics, will jointly host a Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) meeting. The broad theme of the meeting is “Labour Markets and Institutions,” but submissions on other topics are also encouraged. The keynote speaker will be Jane Humphries, Professor Emeritus of Economic History and Fellow of All Souls College, University of Oxford.
    FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in any field of economic and social history. The meetings build on the concept that scholars present their ongoing research at an early stage. The 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
    Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV by March 30, 2018. For submission instructions, please see the complete call for papers; additional details are available on the FRESH website.
     Initially administered from the University of Southern Denmark, the FRESH program moved to Queen's University Belfast in 2017.
