Call for Papers
LSE Graduate Seminar in Economic History, Lent Term and 2017 Summer Term

PhD students conducting research in the field of economic history are invited to apply to present at the LSE Graduate Seminar in Economic History. The seminar convenors are presently considering applications for the 2017 Lent Term (January – March) and the 2017 Summer Term (April – June). All applications will be considered for both terms.

The LSE Graduate Seminar in Economic History is intended for the presentation of papers (or chapters) at an advanced stage of research. Papers may address any historical period, region, or theme within economic history, but must constitute a substantial contribution to a scholarly debate within the discipline.

The seminar consists of a presentation of approximately 45 minutes in length, followed by questions and comments. Faculty and PhD students in the Department of Economic History are in regular attendance. Presenters can expect to receive critical and relevant feedback from economic historians with diverse expertise. In advance of the seminar, presenters are expected to submit a full-length draft of the paper for circulation.

In order to apply, please submit a CV and either of the following: a) a draft of the paper to be presented or b) an extended abstract of the paper to be presented, consisting of not less than 1,000 words. These materials should be emailed to the seminar convenors: Mattia Bertazzini (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), Brian Varian (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), and Franz Zobl (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) no later than Friday, 28 October 2016. You can expect to learn the outcome of your application by early December.

A small travel subsidy of up to £75 is available for overseas presenters without recourse to other funds.

Please direct any questions to the seminar convenors.
