The Paris School of Economics will host a Virtual 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 virtual 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.
Our keynote speaker is Juan Flores Zendejas, Associate Professor of Economic History at the University of Geneva. Dr Flores is a specialist in the history of financial crises, the financing of economic development in Latin America and the role of European financial centers at the end of the 19th century. He will present material from his new edited volume (co-edited with Pierre Penet, published open access by Oxford University Press in March 2021).
