STEPHAN EPSTEIN LSE, Economic History Transmitting Craft Knowledge in Premodern Europe

WILLIAM ASHWORTH Liverpool, History Practical Objectivity: The State, Excise and Production in Eighteenth Century England

This seminar replaces ‘New Perspectives in the History of Science,’ which ran at the IHR until recently. It covers the history of the social and natural sciences – as well as ways of knowing and doing not usually considered ‘scientific’. We hope it will transcend specialisms and be useful to a wide range of historians and other scholars. It will usually run with two speakers per meeting.

Convenors: Andrew Mendelsohn (History of Science, Technology and Medicine; Imperial College) Mary Morgan (Economic History, LSE)
