Economic and Social History Seminar
The Economic and Social History research group of Utrecht University annually organises two series of seminars, one in spring and one in fall. Papers on a range of different topics related to economic and social history, from antiquity to recent times, are presented by scholars from within and outside the Netherlands.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, seminars will now follow an online format, though for most seminars we also organise a room where some of us can meet in person. While it is unfortunate that larger physical gatherings are not possible, the online format allows us to invite scholars from outside of Europe. Since this fall we have taken this opportunity to invite speakers from outside of Europe, some seminars will take place at the usual time i.e. 1200 CEST, and others will be scheduled at 1600 CEST to accommodate for the time difference. Updated information on this will be provided on the mailing list before each seminar.
