The European Summer School in Economic History, Humboldt University

Deadline: 30 May 2014
Open to: doctoral students, master students and young scholars from different parts of Europe
Venue: 1-5 September 2014, Berlin, Germany



The Summer School, sponsored by the European Historical Economics Society, Humboldt University and the London School of Economics, is dedicated to reversing this trend by bringing together young scholars from different parts of Europe whose research focuses on the economic history of Central, East and South-East Europe (CESEE) or on comparative development across different European regions. The Summer School will be interdisciplinary, drawing on recent advances in economics, economic history, and history, and thus welcomes applicants from all social sciences working on historical aspects of economic change.

The Summer School held at the Humboldt University in Berlin, between 1-5 September 2014, offers a full-week intensive training programme. Lectures and seminars in the mornings will focus on general themes and methods, held by established scholars of CESEE economic history who have published in leading international academic journals. Workshop sessions in the afternoons will give students the opportunity to present and discuss their work.


The Summer School is mainly open to doctoral students, but applications from master students at an advanced stage of their research and scholars who recently completed their doctorate will also be considered.


All costs of  participation, including travel, accommodation, and catering during the school sessions, will be covered by the organizers.


Application deadline is 30 May 2014.

In order to apply, submit a maximum 1,000 word summary of your proposed research (specifying the object and context of the investigation, the analytical approach you wish to follow and any preliminary findings you have established already), and a one-page curriculum vitae (listing educational qualifications, grants and prizes, academic publications and international conference attendance, if applicable) by email to Dr Tamás Vonyó (LSE) at
