Welcome and Introduction

 

The Center for History and Economics online seminar hosts presentations and discussions on recent research in history, economics, and related disciplines. Ranging widely across historical periods and around the globe, the seminar covers topics including economic thought, histories of economic life, environmental history, and legal history. The seminar is also intended to bring together, regularly throughout the academic year and in a spirit of scholarly exchange, friends and affiliates of the Center in Cambridge, Harvard, Paris, and elsewhere.

We are delighted to announce the new Fall program. If you wish to attend one or more sessions, please register soon because numbers are limited. We will then send to you an invitation on Zoom. Each presentation will be approximately 20 minutes, followed by a 30 minute discussion.
