This seminar will focus on the evolution of world trade and other aspects of globalisation over the last 200 years. We will cover some theoretical priors, but most of the course will focus on empirical and historical studies. Half of the seminar’s participants will be historians and the other one economists. The discussions will neither be of pure technical nor historical nature. Instead, we will analyse economic policies of the past and try to draw policy lessons for today from them.
A component of the seminar is an ungraded presentation.
You can register for this seminar until 30th of August by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Based on our experiences of previous years, we expect that the number of applicants will surpass the slots that we offer (13 history students, 13 economics students). We will thus randomly draw among all applicants and notify students that are admitted.
