Working group

Economic History and Ideas

Our working group on economic history and history of economic ideas (EHIWG) aims to bring together young and senior researchers working on economic history and related disciplines. In particular, it aims to foster the dialogue between early-modern and modern historians, intellectual historians, economists and all scholars interested in economic questions. Our topics range from – but are not confined to – economic development, the interaction between market structures and society, globalization, financial crises and inequality, to merchant networks, business elites and the origins of political economy. The group organizes student-run seminars and events with external speakers, encouraging the participation of students and scholars who wish to present their on-going research to a friendly audience of peers.

Faculty liaison: Giorgio Riello

Coordinators:  Marie-Theres Findeisen and Corentin Gruffat
