The Paris School of Economics will host a Frontier Research in Economic and Social History meeting. FRESH meetings aim at gathering researchers to present their ongoing research at an early stage, and discuss them with peers, in a friendly environment.
The Paris meeting is addressed especially to young researchers working at the interaction of business and economic history and linking these aspects to issues in international political economy and international economic relations, from the nineteenth to the twenty first centuries.
The keynote speaker will be Professor Leslie Hannah, emeritus professor at the London School of Economics and at the University of Tokyo. Professor Hannah will present his research on the largest UK manufacturing employers of 1881, focusing on the determinants of whether they listed and their choices among 26 UK stock exchanges.
(Note, this meeting was originally scheduled to take place in 2020.)
Further details about the programme will follow soon.
