The Financial History Network aims to promote scholarship in the fields of financial history and the history of finance, broadly defined. The network will launch a webinar series in September 2020 to provide a space for the presentation and discussion of works in progress, dissertation chapters, or R&R manuscripts. The webinars are open to scholars primarily from a qualitative perspective, willing to engage in productive conversations by providing supportive and constructive comments to peers.
The Financial History Network aims to complement alternative outlets – like the Bonn Macrohistory Seminars, the YSI Economic History Graduate Webinars, and the Virtual Economic History Seminars – by giving prominence to works that employ a more qualitative or institutional perspective in the fields of financial, banking, monetary, and accounting history, the history and sociology of finance, and the history of capitalism. They are also open to other approaches.
The webinar sessions will take place once a month starting in September 2020 on Mondays, at 5 pm Frankfurt / 4 pm London / 12 pm Sao Paulo / 11 am New York / 10 am Mexico City.
