Scholars are invited to submit proposals to a workshop on Workshop on Monetary and Financial History (https://www.federalreserve.gov/conferences/monetary-financial-history-workshop-2019.htm) that will be hosted at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System on May 6-8, 2019. This workshop will be a chance for researchers at academic, policy, and professional institutions to meet and discuss topics drawn from historical experience that not only help us understand the past but which frequently offer lessons and insights for today. Professor William Goetzmann from the Yale School of Management will deliver the keynote address.
Proposals on any topic related to monetary and financial history are welcome. The workshop is geared toward allowing researchers to receive feedback on newer projects, although more advanced projects will also be considered.
Proposals should be no more than five pages and should be sent to FinHistWorkshop2019@frb.gov by December 14, 2018. Alternatively, proposals may be sent as a presentation slide deck, not to exceed 20 slides. Decisions will be made by February 28, 2019.
The Board will pay for domestic travel of presenters as well as for their accommodations.
Program committee: Mark Carlson and Ralf Meisenzahl
