We are very pleased to announce a Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) meeting will take place in Cork, on Friday 16 August 2019.
FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in all fields of economic and social history, broadly defined. The meetings provide scholars with an opportunity to present their ongoing research at an early stage, i.e. 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 venue for this FRESH workshop will be University College Cork's executive education facilities. Housed in a former Cork Savings Bank branch in Lapp's Quay in the heart of Cork City, this landmark building was constructed in 1842 and has recently been restored for the university's business school.
The keynote speaker is Nick Hanley, Chair in Environmental and One Health Economics at the University of Glasgow, who will present his work on long-run sustainability.
