About the workshop
The Institute of New Economic Thinking Young Scholars Initiative (INET YSI) Working Group on the History of Economic Thought is organising a Young Scholars Workshop on Methods in the History of Economic Thought on May 17th 2017 in Antwerp, Belgium, before the Annual ESHET Conference
Since most young historians of economic thought are economists by training, they are well-versed in economic or rather quantitative methods. Unfortunately, an economics background does not often include relevant methods for history of economic thought – such as qualitative or historical methods. As a result, young historians of economic thought are disadvantaged, struggling through their doctoral training trying to better familiarize themselves with different historical or qualitative methods essential for their research. This one-day workshop therefore aims to increase the awareness of and familiarity with historical and appropriate qualitative methods.
We encourage young scholars (including PhD level) researching history of economic thought to apply to this methods workshop. Please submit a 300 word motivation to take part in this workshop, including how it can help your research. Apply by filling out the online form which can be found in the "Further official information" link below the announcement.
Some travel stipends are available.
The deadline for application is January 30th. Successful candidates will be notified by late February.
The workshop will be held on May 17th 2017, the day preceding the 21st Annual Conference of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought, May 18th‑20th in Antwerp, Belgium.
