Rates of social and economic mobility are notoriously difficult to measure properly – for today societies, and even more for preindustrial ones. This is why, for a long time, preindustrial social mobility has been the object more of speculation than of proper attempts at measurement and analysis. Only in recent years the situation has started to change, with some research groups finally rising to the task of exploring long-term trends in social mobility during the Middle Ages and the early modern period. Most of this new research has focused on Europe, also due to the exceptionally good and ancient historical sources available for many areas of that continent. The project SMITE (Social Mobility and Inequality across Italy and Europe 1300-1800), funded by the European Research Council, has also contributed to this renewal of interest by organizing a string of workshops and conference sessions on social mobility and inequality.
The summer school provides a multidisciplinary environment for doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences having specialisms in the history of energy. It will enable them to deepen their knowledge of the field, as well as to network with established researchers and collaborate in workshops. This event aims to create links between researchers and students from different countries and different backgrounds so as to enable them to meet each other outside any disciplinary barriers.

Economic history has already examined the opening of new markets in the perspective of more general research on the notion of markets and their concrete functioning. The exploration of the appearance of new products, technical innovations, and the evolution of consumption, transportation, and distribution modes contributed to our understanding of how new markets are created, conquered and maintained over time.
The next AFHE Congress aims to focus attention on this very moment of emergence, its causes, manifestations and consequences, from antiquity to the present day.
