Early Modern Economic and Social History
Our seminar is interested in social and economic aspects of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, in any part of the globe. We meet in the Faculty building on alternate Thursdays in Lent Term and in Easter Term. The convenors welcome suggestions for speakers.
This seminar does not take place in Michaelmas Term. It is one of the contributors to the Core seminar in economic and social history
We normally have dinner with the speaker afterwards, to which all are welcome.
