Economic History Lab

The Economic History Lab provides opportunities for faculty to work closely with undergraduate students, pre-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows to support historical research in economic history. The initiative also hopes to foster methodological innovations that could help historical research to scale up, including new learning models that could substantially improve the digitization of data tables or text analysis technology.
The Economic History Lab initiative provides research support for economic history faculty from around campus (pre-doctoral students and graduate research assistants, and regular lab research meetings), for graduate students (traveling to conferences, conducting archival work, collecting and coding data, and spending time to learn their historical context), and for development of undergraduate courses in economic history.
