Advanced Research Seminar (IHEPB)


Since its creation in 1970, the research seminar has been a magnet for many prominent social and economic historians. The seminar meets approximately six times per semester. Its sessions enable lively exchanges on recent and ongoing research in economic history undertaken at both the international and national level.
