CALL FOR PAPERS
GloCoBank Early-Career Researcher Workshop: New Frontiers for Data Analytics in Economic and Business History Research
A GloCoBank Project Event
25 May 2023 | St Hilda’s College | University of Oxford
Deadline for proposals: 30 January 2023
The ERC-funded ‘Global Correspondent Banking 1870–2000’ (GloCoBank) project at the University of Oxford will host a one-day workshop for early-career researchers to explore novel approaches to data creation and data analytics in economic, financial and business history.
The workshop aims to explore the crossroads between data scientists, economic historians and geographers, and business researchers in the fields of international economic, business, and financial relations. The workshop is also open to multi-disciplinary applications of large-scale data analytics.
Recent advances in data analytics open up new opportunities for business and economic research. Archival sources can now be digitalised at a larger scale and over longer time spans, for both structured and unstructured data. New analytical techniques can unlock comparative analysis of cross-border financial flows at multiple levels and reconstruct strategic behaviour of actors within complex financial networks.
This workshop will connect early-career researchers endeavouring to advance the frontiers of future research within their core disciplines and set a new vision for data analytics in historical research. We look forward to building a research community to inspire collaboration between disciplines.
Early-career researchers, including advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, are encouraged to submit abstracts for the following sessions:
Data creation for historical research: unlocking new data sources
Data analytics and visualisations: breaking new grounds
Please submit abstracts (max. 500 words) to email@example.com by the 30th of January 2023.
Attendance and expenses:
The workshop will be held on Thursday 25th May 2023, at St. Hilda’s College, University of Oxford.
Where participants are unable to fund their own expenses, some funds will be available to support the cost of travel and accommodation We will also enable virtual participation (via Zoom) where practical.
