The last decade has witnessed a revival of multidisciplinary research on the social, political, and historical sources and consequences of public finance. We invite interested graduate students from history, law, public policy, and the social sciences to participate in a one-day workshop on this “new fiscal sociology.” In addition to brief lectures introducing students to the comparative history of taxation and public finance, the workshop will consist of discussion of classic and contemporary texts.
The graduate student workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 16th, 2016, in Chicago, Illinois in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Social Science History Association (SSHA). Participants may also have the opportunity to present their own work on Thursday, November 17th, as part of the Public Finance network at the SSHA conference.
