New Directions in Global Economic History Symposium

Primary tabs

The purpose of the symposium is to assess how the field of economic history has advanced over the last couple of decades and what new directions it is currently taking. It will consist of a morning session of four presentations and discussions. Each of the speakers will present a case study, which will illustrate how the field is changing and moving forward. In the post-lunch session, Tirthankar Roy (Professor, Economic History Department, LSE, UK) will give deliver his keynote address titled ‘India and the New Economic History of Colonialism’.

Papers will be pre-circulated to facilitate discussion. Each speaker will have 20-25 minutes for presentation and 15 minutes for discussion. Two additional papers will be presented by Jari Eloranta (Appalachian State University) and William Roberds (Atlanta Federal Reserve). During lunch, Jeremy Land (Georgia State University) will give a short presentation about creating an Atlanta Regional Network of Economic Historians. 

We are still looking to add papers from early career and graduate student in addition to paper discussants. If you are interested in presenting your research or serving as a discussant, please email your proposal (a title and a short description) to Jeremy Land (email below).

Event Registration: Send an email (with name and institution) to Jeremy Land to RSVP. There is no cost to attend or participate in the symposium. Lunch and coffee will be provided, so we need an exact number of participants by February 7, 2018.
