|Description:||Second Conference on German Cliometrics "International und Interdisciplinary Perspectives on German Economic and Social History "|
|Subject:||Cliometrics is an approach to historical research which combines explicit models with formal statistical techniques to analyze painstakingly collected and refined data, often very large quantities of data. The conference will have two particular features of note, both aimed at the coming generation of cliometricians: We propose to offer bursaries to cover the cost of attendance by both German and North American graduate students newly embarked on their studies (so still in the pre-dissertation phase), and will give one long session over to a discussion of methodology: Experienced researchers will bring some of their data and demonstrate how they have processed them and how they have solved the research challenges that both their data and their research questions have posed.
