This seminar is open to the public.
The Economic History Workshop (Economics 3104) 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. Every year, the best and the brightest historians are recruited to present their new papers to the group. The workshop organizers include Claudia Goldin, Nathan Nunn, and Melissa Dell.
