On 29 April 2020 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.
Proposals using a wide range of different methodologies are welcomed. We especially welcome submissions dealing with topics such as (but non-exclusively):
Global firms in a globalizing world
International financial credit to industry and firms
Relationships between banks and industry
Relationship between firms and state and non-state actors (associations, supra-national organizations)
Firms’ governance and organization
Global circulation of techniques and managerial practices
Firms’ survival during global crises
PhD students and new researchers are especially encouraged to submit their work.
To be considered, each prospective participant should submit a two-page proposal and a brief academic CV (in Word or PDF format) email@example.com by 31 January 2020. Notification of acceptance will be sent by 29 February 2020.
There will be at least three bursaries to help PhD students to cover the costs of travel and accommodation. Further information on how to apply for these will be made available to successful applicants.
FRESH is and initiative of the European Historical Economics Society.
