HPE 2016

We are very pleased to announce the First Annual LSE Historical Political Economy Conference, to be held at the LSE on January 25th, 2016.

Our goal was to create a new London-based venue where cutting edge and innovative research on historical political economy can be presented and discussed. In particular, we aimed to bring together emerging and leading scholars from both UK and the US who work on various aspects of empirical political economy using historical data.
