Epstein lecture series

Date: Tuesday 16 February 2010
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue:  New Theatre, East Building
Speaker: Professor Tracy Dennison

How did some serfs in imperial Russia manage to become as rich as noble landlords?

The Epstein lecture series was established to commemorate SR (Larry) Epstein, who died suddenly in 2007. Larry was committed to establishing a regular lecture series at LSE by outstanding early career researchers in economic history.

Tracy Dennison is associate professor of Social Science History at the California Institute of Technology.
