From:Mo 24-06-2024
Until:Fr 28-06-2024

The Financial, Economic and Business History (FEB-HIS) Summer School for PhD students and Postdocs will take place in Groningen from Monday 24th June to Friday 28th June 2024. It is organised by the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) of the University of Groningen (UG) and supported by the Groningen Growth and Development Centre (GGDC) and the European Historical Economics Society (EHES). Students will be accommodated in the city centre of Groningen.

Programme and course description:

The school's main aim is to offer PhD students and Postdocs the opportunity to develop core research skills, ranging from presenting their research project, receiving feedback, providing commentary on the work of their peers, and moderating each other’s sessions. Students will be rewarded by earning three ECTS. Participants will receive feedback on their presentations from leading scholars in the field. Moreover, these scholars will deliver keynote speeches on the latest developments in financial, economic and business history, shedding light on the digitization of historical data and innovative research methodologies. Moreover, students will receive guidance on publishing their work from (former) journal editors and gain valuable insights into academic career prospects. In celebration of the third female (and first in economic history) Nobel Memorial Prize winner in Economic Sciences, Claudia Goldin, we will also pay particular attention to women in academia.
