SEMINARS

The Macrofinance & Macrohistory Lab Bonn is moving the Bonn Macrohistory Seminars to Zoom, inviting scholars and students with interest in economic and financial history, historical development, and political economy, to participate.

 

Over the past years, the Bonn Macrofinance & Macrohistory Lab has hosted outstanding speakers, as one of Europe’s premier hubs for economic history. We are happy to continue introducing great ideas and researchers through our online series of Bonn Macrohistory Webinars.

 

The webinars will take place every Thursday at 16:00 Central Europe Time, and will last for 60 minutes including 45 minutes presentation, and 15 minutes for questions and discussion.

 

Specific details of the meeting code and event information will be sent through email announcements. Please write an email to macrofinance[at]uni-bonn.de if you would like to be added to seminar mailing list.
