We are now accepting applications for the annual South Asia Economic History Workshop hosted by the Economic History Department at the London School of Economics. The day long workshop is scheduled to be held online via Zoom on Friday 14th May 2021. The theme of the workshop this year is ‘South Asia through a Global Lens,’ where we hope to reconnect South Asian economic history with global academic debates. This year, the workshop will additionally include a panel discussion between four eminent economic historians of South Asia who will reflect upon the future of the field and the significance of the region in understanding global economic development. A summary of the theme of the workshop and the panel discussion can be found on the event webpage.
This event will be the third instalment of the South Asia Economic History Workshop series hosted by the Economic History Department at the LSE and organised by its PhD students. The primary goal of this annual series is to field new research in South Asian economic history and encourage collaboration amongst academics focused on the region. This year, we are taking advantage of the increased usage of online platforms to host an online workshop that allows South Asian economic historians from around the world to join a discussion on the future of the field and its place in global economic history.
