Core seminar in economic and social history

Lent and Easter Terms 2017

Seminars begin at 5pm in the Lecture Theatre, Trinity Hall (unless otherwise stated). Each seminar is followed by drinks and (usually) dinner with the speaker. All welcome!


This seminar is a combination of eight seminar programmes: medieval economic and social history; early modern economic and social history; modern economic and social history; quantitative history; the Centre for Financial History; the Centre for History and Economics; the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure; and the Centre for Quantitative Economic History.

Their specialist seminar programmes do not run in Michaelmas term, but each meets separately again in Lent and (sometimes) Easter.

The core seminar is grateful for the support of Trinity Hall and for the generosity of the Trevelyan Fund.

Seminar coordinators: Amy Erickson (), Duncan Needham (), and Leigh Shaw-Taylor ().
