Announcement: FRESH incorporated into EHES

The Frontier Research in Economic and Social History (FRESH) organizers are pleased to announce that at the recent European Historical Economics Society (EHES) trustees meeting on March 29, 2014 it was decided to incorporate FRESH within the EHES. FRESH will continue to be supported by and administered from the University of Southern Denmark and the Historical Economics and Development Group (HEDG), but we believe that becoming an initiative of the EHES gives us the solid academic backing we need to continue promoting economic history and the FRESH workshop format around the world. Moreover, the EHES has generously offered to fund each FRESH meeting, so that we can offer some limited financial support to junior scholars who wish to attend, enabling even more to benefit from the high international standards of our workshops.
