[  Seminar Website  ]

The Economic History Workshop (Economics 3336) is an interdisciplinary offering of the Department of Economics. In continuous operation for about fifty years, the workshop has become an exceptionally important forum for economic historians in the greater Boston area, serving as a lively and deeply informative seminar for those interested in long-term economic change, economic growth, and development. Papers and updated schedules are available for participants before each meeting on the workshop's website. As in the past, the workshop this year is recruiting the best and the brightest to expose their new papers to the group. The workshop organizers for the 2013–2014 year are Rick Hornbeck, Claudia Goldin (on leave), Nathan Nunn, and Eric Chaney from the Department of Economics, Melissa Dell from the Harvard Society of Fellows, and James Robinson from the Department of Government.
