Second Latin American Economic History Congress (Mexico City, February 3-5, 2010)

Well. The Economic History Blog has an exclusive. This post has the text I’ve written to announce an academic event in February 2010. The entry might sound too institutional, but I thought it would be nice if I shared it with you all before it appears published in economic history associations websites and e-mail lists.

The scale of the event is huge. It will be a great opportunity for the world to see the topics and the quality of on-going Latin American economic history research.

Ottoman week

February 28, 2009

Following that heated thread on allempires.net, I’ve decided to devote the next 5 posts to the Ottoman Empire. I’ll also try to pay more attention to non-European topics in the future. In particular, I’ll post a few things on Mughal India and Ming China soon.

Taking a break

February 25, 2009

Unfortunately, I am now conducting research in Morocco and allthough it leaves me a lot of time to read, I don’t have a very reliable access to the internet, so I may be unable to post much on the blog for the coming month.


Thanks

February 10, 2009

I’d like to grab this occasion for a quick thank-you-note to all the readers of the blog! Today we’ve reached 10,000 viewers and we’re approaching the 100th post. Although these are admitedly modest benchmarks, it really is heartwarming.

I’d also like to thank Richard for his precious contributions, which create lively bridges between history and contemporary issues. Finally, I’d like to thank Leonardo Monasterio who has posted a nice comment about the EHB on his blog and allowed us to enjoy our busiest day ever (by far).

Voilà

Thank you all
