19 06 2012

Call for papers:
London Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) Meeting

Topic: Financial Institutions and Economic Growth in Historical Perspective

First Bank of the United States, Chestnut Street, Philadelphia

Date: December 14-15, 2012

Hosting Institution: Department of Economic History, London School of  Economics

Keynote Speakers: Alan Taylor (Virginia), John Turner (QUB) and Joachim Voth

Local Organizers: Olivier Accominotti, Chris Minns.
FRESH Organizers: Paul Sharp, Jacob Weisdorf and Rowena Gray.

FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in any field of  economic and social history. The meetings build on the concept that scholars present their ongoing research at an early stage, i.e. normally before it becomes  published as a working paper or the like, and certainly before it is published in
books or journals. The main aim of the meetings is to gather researchers in a  friendly and collegial environment where they can present their research and  receive constructive criticism from their peers.  The FRESH meeting organizers strive to accommodate as many speakers as  possible. Accepted papers will receive 45 minutes each (25 minutes for  presentation and 20 minutes for discussion). However, in the interest of
avoiding parallel sessions, the presentation time may be shortened.
For this meeting we particularly encourage papers on financial institutions,  financial crises and economic growth, but submissions from scholars working in  other areas are also welcome.

Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV to Olivier Accominotti ( no later than August 31, 2012.

Notification of acceptance will be given by the end of September 2012.
