About the International Macro History Online Seminar

The International Macroeconomic History Online Seminar Series, jointly organised by the Graduate Institute's Centre for Finance and DevelopmentCentre for Economic Policy Research and a consortium of numerous other universities and institutions from around the world, aims to keep the flow of intellectual debate active and to bring macroeconomic history topics to an interested public on a weekly basis.

A virtual format has important advantages, namely, by abolishing physical constraints, so we can have more participants joining in from compatible time zones than the conventional seminars. This is good for the presenters, who are exposed to a broader audience and also for the audience, who can choose to attend seminar series closer to their own research interests. This advantage is greater for specialized sub-disciplines. This is the reason why we launched a seminar in macro history. Finally, co-ordinating a joint seminar series provides economies of scale in time use.
