European Macro History Online Seminar

In partnership with a Network of European Universities
, - ,

Every Tuesday 16:00 - 17:00 CEST

A series of weekly online seminars on macroeconomic history

The Graduate Institute's Centre for Finance and Development and a consortium of sixteen other universities and institutions are launching a Europe-wide virtual seminar in Macroeconomic History. At a time when general confinement had led to university closures and widespread cancellations of seminar series, workshops and conferences, this initiative aims to keep the flow of intellectual debate active.

A virtual format has important advantages, namely, by abolishing physical constraints, so we can have more participants joining in from compatible time zones than the conventional seminars. This is good for the presenters, who are exposed to a broader audience and also for the audience, who can choose to attend seminar series closer to their own research interests. This advantage is greater for specialized sub-disciplines. This is the reason why we launched a seminar in macro history. Finally, co-ordinating a joint seminar series provides economies of scale in time use.
