Economic and Social History Graduate Seminar

The Graduate Seminar in Economic and Social History provides a forum for graduate students to share their research work in progress. It welcomes qualitative and quantitative research alike on any aspect of economic and social history. The seminar series is well attended by faculty and graduate students from History, Economic History, and related disciplines. Each session consists of a 30-minute presentation by the guest speaker followed by 30 minutes of discussion and questions from the audience.

The seminar series will take place weekly during term time (see dates below) on Wednesdays, from 13:00 to 14:00. We are going to run the seminars in an in-person format. Barring exceptional circumstances, all speakers are expected in person in the Butler Room, Nuffield College, Oxford unless otherwise stated.
