The Research Journey of an Economic Historian
Event for undergraduate and masters students

This event featured five faculty members and PhDs talking about life in research from idea to publication. Presenters included Professors Patrick Wallis and Joan Roses who discussed the social and geographical factors shaped their research interests, Dr Eric Schneider discussed the inter-disciplinary nature of his research on child growth in Britain and Japan, and Rebecca Simson and Thilo Albers discussed the particular challenges of their PhD research projects. It was a rare opportunity to set the research of teachers and PhDs work within a personal as well as an academic context.

The aim of the event was to engage with and inspire undergraduate and masters Economic History students to consider a career in research, while giving a realistic picture of the practicalities and career possibilities.

For those students interested in discussing further study at LSE or beyond, we strongly encourage you to talk to your academic adviser, who can also signpost you to further sources of information.
