ESTER Advanced Seminar: The market and its Agents

The Istituto Internazionale di Storia Economica “F. Datini” and the European School for Training in Economic and Social Historical Research (ESTER) announce their first jointly organized Datini-ESTER Advanced Seminar for PhD students and Post-Docs within the field of Economic and Social History on 2-7 May 2014, Prato (Italy). Deadline for application: 30 September 2013

This Advanced Datini-ESTER Seminar is open to 15 PhD-students and Post-Docs (who finished their doctorate from no more than five years). Besides providing a feedback chance for ongoing PhD and Post-Doc projects on historical market formation and functioning, the aim of the workshop is also to foster cooperation between European economic and social historians. A team of leading European senior researchers provides comments and leads discussions during the seminar. Prior to the course students have to write a paper. Costs for accommodation and catering will be covered by the organizers.
