ii. Adelaide Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) Meeting (REGISTRATION CLOSES 31 MAY, SPACES ARE LIMITED)
Date: June 25, 2013
Venue: University of South Australia, Adelaide, South Australia
Local organizer: Martin Shanahan (email@example.com)
About the Adelaide FRESH Meeting
To date, FRESH meetings have been held in over a dozen countries around the world. FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in any field of economic and social history. The meetings build on the concept that scholars present their ongoing research at an early stage, i.e. normally before it becomes published as a working paper or the like, and certainly before it is published in books or journals. The main aim of the meetings is to gather researchers in a friendly and collegial environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers. Participants should prepare their presentation in order to target a general-field audience. The idea is that, in this way, they will get to think about their research in broader terms.
In the week following the World Cliometrics Conference in Hawaii, there will a FRESH meeting at the University of South Australia. Participants planning to take part in the World Cliometrics Congress are warmly invited to return home via Australia, and participate in the Adelaide fresh meeting. There are direct flights from Hawaii into Adelaide, as well as multiple daily connections from Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. In 2011, Adelaide was named most liveable city in Australia and eighth in The Economist’s World’s Most Livable Cities.
The FRESH meeting organizers strive to accommodate as many speakers as possible. Accepted papers will normally receive 30 minutes each (20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion). However, in the interest of avoiding parallel sessions, the presentation time may be shortened. In the event of space constraints, please note that members of the hosting faculty and geographically close institutions will be given preference.
The organizers offer lunch, dinner and other refreshments on the day of the meeting, but hotels and travel must be covered by the participants themselves. Also, there will be a registration fee for this meeting of 70 AUD payable on acceptance of your submission.
How to apply
Prospective participants should submit a one-page abstract and a short CV to Martin Shanahan (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than March 31, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be given by the middle of April.
The Adelaide FRESH meeting is organized by Martin Shanahan (local organizer), Rowena Gray, Paul Sharp and Jacob Weisdorf (FRESH coordinators).
