Inhalte der LV

This research seminar introduces into economic and social history as an interdisciplinary research field between history, economics and the social sciences. This term the focus will be on the historical development of economic inequalities (in, at least, wealth, income and opportunities) and the underlying determinants and potential long-run consequences. We will read, present and discuss representative examples of this strand of research. 

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

Students will learn what economic and social history actually is, how historical insights can inform 'present-biased' research in economic and social sciences and how the use of frameworks from economic and social sciences does inform and shape historical research. Insights into the peculiarities of historical sources and how to work with them are given. Knowledge is transmitted on inequalities in history, their causes and consequences - and on ways to mitigate them.


Presentations of current research projects by researchers from inside and outside this university are combined with the in-depth study of published research papers through reading, oral presentation, discussion and critical written assessment.
