Cliometrics is an approach to economic history that is about the use of economic theory and quantitative methods to explain history.
The LSE Cliometrics Group is a student-run seminar held at the LSE. Its purpose is to act as a forum for presenting early cliometric research to a friendly, helpful audience of peers.
The format of the seminar is modelled on that of the Annual Cliometrics Conference, with questions and discussion during the presentation itself.
Contact Anna Missiaia (email@example.com ) if you are interested in attending or presenting in future, or get in touch using Facebook page.
The seminars are all at 1p.m
