The Economic History Society of Australia and New Zealand would like to welcome you to a special event for the AEHR.
The July issue of the AEHR honours the contributions of Professor Jeffrey Williamson to Australian and Asia-Pacific economic history. The table of contents for the issue is below. Jeff has had an ongoing relationship with the AEHR as an author and a member of the editorial board since the 1980s. He has had a lifelong interest in Asia-Pacific economic history. The special event will be a launch for this issue. The event will consist of a brief introduction by the editor of the issue (Professor Andrew Seltzer, Royal Holloway) and a few words from Professor Williamson. Afterwards, it will be a social event, providing an opportunity for economic historians to catch up with each other.
