2018 Summer Institute

The 2018 Summer Institute on the History of Economics will take place from June 19-24 on the Duke University campus. It will differ from those we offered in the past, as it is aimed at young scholars who wish to present their own research in the history of economics, broadly defined. Each morning the senior scholars noted below will present and lead discussions on their own research. In the afternoons the young scholars will have the opportunity to present their research, and the assembled group will workshop it. The Institute Organizers are Bruce Caldwell (Duke University) and Till Düppe (Université du Québec à Montréal).

There is no registration fee, and double occupancy housing in the J. B. Duke Hotel, a fine hotel on the edge of campus, will be provided free of charge.  We will also offer limited travel support.
