The workshop – which follows a first such event held in June 2016 at the Macrohistory Lab at the University of Bonn (Prof. Moritz Schularick) – aims to bring together economic historians and macroeconomists. Half of the sessions will be devoted to general topics at the intersection of macroeconomics and economic history, while the other half will focus on debt sustainability as one of the key issues facing developed countries in the medium and long-term. The objective of the workshop is to strengthen further the ties which have developed in recent years to great mutual advantage between economic and financial historians, on the one hand, and macroeconomists and applied economists, on the other.
Complete manuscripts or 3-page drafts should be submitted to macrohistory-conference[at]york.ac.uk no later than 15th October (in pdf-format). The submitters will be acknowledged and the authors of accepted papers will be notified by 30th November.
The workshop will be held in York, UK, from 26th to 28th March 2018.
