Eastern European Historiography primarily suffers from a lack of common methodologies and a tendency to publish only in the local languages. The purpose of the Eastern European Economic History Hub is to facilitate the debate on the economic development of (broadly defined) Eastern Europe by promoting novel methodological advancements and connecting peers writing about the region from the ‘Eastern’ and ‘Western’ perspectives.
The Hub intends to cater for these needs by providing:
- Notice board for the relevant events and news
- Platform for on-line publications of datasets
- Selection of Working Papers
- Periodic workshops
Historical sources of development in Central and Eastern Europe
