Centre for Economic History Symposium

About this event

Economic history in Australia has gone through several important transformations – from individual satellites, disciplinary-style growth, neoliberal crisis to a more recent renaissance. Coinciding with the 10th Anniversary of the ANU Centre for Economic History, and the publication of Claire E. F. Wright’s Australian Economic History: Transformations of an Interdisciplinary Field (2022, ANU Press), this symposium will consider future research and teaching opportunities for economic history in Australasia and about Australasia. Drawing on participants’ expertise across disciplines, time periods and topics, contributions will discuss new themes, data and methodologies for economic historical work; connecting with co-authors across disciplines; future directions in teaching specialised economic history courses; and strategies for incorporating economic history material into economics, history, and business coursework.

This Symposium will be in hybrid mode of delivery.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided.
