First Annual LSE Historical Political Economy Conference
Charles Booth poverty map of London, Kingsway and surrounding areas, 1886-1903. For more information on LSE Charles Booth online Archive click here.
Our goal is to create a new London-based venue where cutting edge and innovative research on historical political economy can be presented and discussed. In particular, we aim to bring together emerging and leading scholars from both UK and the US who work on various aspects of empirical political economy using historical data. The smaller format of the conference allows a thorough discussion of all papers, with at least one hour devoted to each paper.
The First Annual Historical Political Economy Conference, was held at the LSE on January 25th, 2016. This conference was by invitation only. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
