LSESU Economic and Social History Journal Spring 2019

We are proud to announce the inaugural edition of the Economic and Social History Journal. Produced by the LSESU Economic History Society, the Economic and Social History Journal hopes to highlight the academic and research strength of the London School of Economics and her students of economic history.

The journal was produced as part of a university wide campaign for essays relating to economic and social history. For the inaugural edition submissions were received from departments across the LSE, from all years of study, from which ten essays being selected for publication. 

The Economic History Society awarded especially the inaugural Leunig Prize for best essay submitted to the Economic History Society Journal to Joseph Miller for his work on London’s guild community between 1580-1730. The Leunig Prize was created in honour of Associate Professor Tim Leunig for his contributions to Economic History and his longstanding relationship with the Economic History Department.

Prizes were also awarded to Edward Smith and Olamide Duyile for encapsulating an extremely high quality of research and academic understanding, along with an insightful but clear means of structure and explanation.

We hope that this journal will continue on an annual basis, highlighting the commitment the LSE Economic History Department has to discovery and future talent in the field.
