Date: 9 December 2016

On December 9, 2016, the Institute for Economic and Social History, Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) will host a Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) meeting. 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, i.e. normally before it becomes published as a working paper or the like, 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 broad theme of the meeting is “Centers, Peripheries and Economic Integration in History”, but submissions on other topics can be made.

 

Logistics

The FRESH meeting organizers strive to accommodate as many speakers as possible. Accepted papers will receive 30 minutes each (20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion). However, in the interest of avoiding parallel sessions, the presentation time may be shortened.

There will be a registration fee of €70 (€20 for graduate students) for this meeting but some financial support will be available for travel and accommodation of presenters thanks to the generosity of the European Historical Economics Society, which will be allocated to graduate student presenters as a priority.

Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV via the following link by November 7, 2016: http://link.sam.sdu.dk/ivo/FRESHmeetingVienna

Notification of acceptance will be given by November 11, 2016.
