ECONOMICS FOR ANCIENT AND MEDIAEVAL HISTORIANS
A WORKSHOP FOR RECENT PH.D.’S AND GRADUATE STUDENTS
The Center for the Ancient Mediterranean at Columbia University is hosting a residential workshop, May 21st to June 8th, 2012, to help young ancient and mediaeval historians (specializing in any field from the Ancient Near East to approximately 1400 AD) to learn more about the methods of economic historians from two distinguished economists. The workshop will be run by Professor Paolo Malanima (Director of the Institute for Studies on Mediterranean Societies at the University of Naples and author of The Pre-modern European Economy ), with a major contribution by Professor Ronald Findlay (Columbia). Organizer: W.V. Harris (Columbia).
Eligibility and selection: doctoral students and anyone who has earned a PhD in ancient history or a closely related field at any date since 2002 may apply, without restriction of nationality. Candidates should submit applications online only to email@example.com by January 31, 2012; they should include a curriculum vitae, the names and e-mail addresses of two referees who may be consulted, and a more or less brief description of an economic-history project that the candidate expects to have under way at the time of the workshop (part of the workshop will consist of discussions of the participants’ projects with the faculty listed above).
The Center for the Ancient Mediterranean expects to pay the costs of the participants’ travel to New York. Housing will be available on the Columbia campus at generously subsidized rates. There will be no charge for tuition or for library use.
All enquiries and applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
